Fodor's Expert Review The Tavern Bar and Restaurant

$ Westport Seafood

The emphasis is firmly on seafood and fresh local produce at this traditional family-run tavern in the village of Murrisk beneath Croagh Patrick. Hearty portions of Clew Bay seafood, Connemara lamb, and local farmhouse cheeses are served all day, and children can get half portions or order from their own menu. Fishermen arrive regularly with freshly landed langoustines (Norwegian lobster), which are then poached and served in garlic butter. Upstairs a more elaborate à la carte menu ($$$) is served in the evenings in the separate restaurant, with a quieter, candlelit atmosphere.
