Be warned, The Tavern’s menu is pretty extensive – choosing could be your biggest challenge. Rest assured you won’t go too far wrong though. The Wild Atlantic Way is well represented here, with the freshest of Atlantic fish and plenty of produce from the ever growing number of local producers. Chef/ Owner Myles O’Brien and his team are partial to a bit of foraging too, so you never know what will pop up on our Specials Menu. Take your time, welcoming fires are dotted around the interior with lots of nooks and cosy corners.

    6 of us for dinner. Traditional irish dishes were nice but I recommend removing pasta from menu or getting some easy pasta dishes to include as any of the 3 pasta dishes we have tried have been a disaster. The waitresses didn't seem happy to be there. Not an enjoyable experience really which was disappointing for the Tavern.

    Food was fantastic. Had the scallops and black pudding, every bite was exquisite. Had the Sea bass for main course, a very genius portion of fish, which was fresh and tasty. The staff were very attentive to our needs and very friendly. I would have no hesitation in recommending this establishment for food and drinks.
