My friend and I stopped into this pub at the weekend for soup and brown bread. The brown bread was very nice, but the vegetable soup and chowder were of a poor quality. The vegetable soup was lukewarm and tasteless. My friend's chowder was poor quality and difficult to discern what fish was used as it seemed to have been... More

As a returning diner, we found our selection of Mussels for starters, crab claws and sea trout for mains mediocre. Didn't seem to be fresh, was over cooked and served tepid. Expected more based on the rating and past experience. As we like the location and the walks in the area we will try it again with a hope of... More

Our host at Drumcreehy recommended this restaurant and we were very pleased. I ordered Crabcakes as a main with salad. Very nicely done. My husband had the poached salmon. It was very good tasting. Service was friendly and efficient. I had the impression that it was frequented by locals.

Just dropped in for a quick bite ... wasn't sure if they would be still serving as the season is coming to an end. We had been diving earlier and were heading back to Galway when my colleague LO suggested we stop in for a quick bite. It was 15:00 hrs or there abouts. I had an open crab sandwich... More

The restaurant & the bar here have a lovely 180 degree view of the quay & seaside. The staff are engaging & professional. I popped in for lunch to try some local oysters in the shell. They came fetchingly on a bed of seaweed, accompanied by lemon & plentiful soda bread & butter. They were beautifully fresh & absolutely delicious... More

We have visited Lennane's many times over the years and always had most enjoyable lunches. Booked recently for a birthday dinner and we were so looking forward to the experience and even booked into a local hotel. However, it was very disappointing. Unfortunately, the Halibut was overcooked, the Lamb was warm, not hot, and the vegetables were boiled to death.... More
