Had dinner here during our stay at ashford castle and what a delight everything from the quaint interior to the professional staff made our visit feel safe and welcoming even with the covid restrictions in place .. I had the seafood platter which for me...was right up there with some of the best platters I've tried around the world in taste and presentation and whole meal very reasonably priced including drinks . Definitely a must visit if you are in this areaMore

Seafood was our desire and here we indulged. Oysters, Hot seafood platter, sole special served with mussels, shrimp in a white wine sauce. You can't go wrong with a sundae and cheese plate foe dessert.

Set in the grounds of Ashford Castle, it oozes cozy atmosphere, with the gentle scent of smoking peat from a smouldering fire. The large cottage building is thatched and has a fishing boat hung from the ceiling. Fine dining which is value for money.

The fish on the menu is freshly caught and varies from day to day. Local salmon from Lake Corrib is a treat, when available.
