We were staying a couple nights in Oranmore (from Canada) and were looking for a place to eat but had some trouble because places seem to stop serving food early but came across The Boathouse and were incredibly thankful we did. We are still convinced it may be the best experience we've had. Thanks to Evan and Allen we not only had the most amazing meal ever, we had an equally comparable experience.
The setting is quiet and romantic. They brought bread and butter to start in addition to the mussels we ordered (perfect and we may or may not have drank the sauce like soup afterwards it was so delicious) which were incredibly fresh and perfectly prepared. We had the lamb with with legumes and spring veggies. Can't say anything except it was perfection and the lamb was so tender it fell apart before the fork could even touch it. We also had the fish and chips with homemade tarter sauce. We've had enough of this dish to say confidently we've never had better. And that tarter sauce..... There was nothing left. Unfortunately we had more food than we should have (and certainly more than we had room for) and couldn't squeeze dessert in but they kindly brought us a couple of bite sized desserts/truffles to sample. Absolutely an amazing experience well worth anyone's time and money. It would probably be mid range price for UK natives so for us Canadians it was pretty expensive but one of the best money we've spent on a meal and we'd do it again in a heartbeat. In fact we even tried rearranging our schedule the next day so we could return but couldn't quite manage it. Definitely try to visit this gem! Will be a meal and experience to remember! Oh and it should be noted that they only use fresh local ingredients of course. Thanks again to Evan and Allen!!!
