Fodor's Expert Review Linnane's Lobster Bar

$$$ Ballyvaughan Irish Fodor's Choice
It doesn't get much better than this 300-year-old, slated, whitewashed cottage with a turf fire and full-length windows that open out onto a terrace overlooking Galway Bay. The specialty is seafood; clams, scallops, salmon, crab claws, and lobster–-the restaurant's cornerstone dish. Chicken and beef make the occasional guest appearance. Seat yourself in the conservatory to keep one eye on your crab cakes and Guinness, and another on the crystal clear waters of the bay. Linnane’s is also a bar, so expect to eat to the sound of fiddles and flutes later in the evening.
