Four of us arrived for lunch last weekend on the recommendation of a local - we were not disappointed. Between us we sampled the Chowder , Crab cakes, Soup of the Day , and the largest platter of seafood I've seen in a long time, plus local bread and drinks from the bar. Everything genuinely was top class, can't get... More

We stumbled upon this place when our intended destination turned out to be closed, and we are so glad it worked out that way. It is a very charming place with friendly staff. One side was the bar area, and it was filled with locals watching Ireland vs Italy rugby, and the other side was a perfect seafood restaurant with... More

We regularly visit and find the food with the new management excellent. The fresh fish is the best. As always the staff in particular the lady who runs the place could take a minute to think as a customer. On each of the last 3 occasions we booked and found a disorganised fuss about where we could or could not... More

I've eaten here a number of times and my most recent visit was no different from the rest. The shellfish here is just fantastic. Caught right off the pier behind the pub, it really does not get any fresher than this. The mussels are without a doubt the best I've ever had and are consistently at that high level of... More

Have been there many times. Food/service/presentation excellent! Mostly you can walk in without reservation and they will find a table for you.

I am just getting around to writing this review. I have eaten here twice and both time I thought it was very good. Prices a little high but that's OK with me if it's good. Nice setting close to the water. I would recommend .

The area was very busy the day we were there for lunch with a lot of walkers, non of them were eating in Linnane's but their bus was parked there. The place was very busy at 1.30pm & a lot of the tables were reserved. I found the lady who seemed to be in charge very sharp when we enquired... More

I dropped into Linnane's in the early afternoon of a cold, wet and windy January day, to be greeted by a roaring fire, a bright space, and a warm welcome. The seafood here is the very best - I had the seafood platter so I got to sample a wide variety, including clams, mussels, crab claws, prawns, smoked salmon and... More

Three of us had lunch in Linnanes. We had chowder, mussels, crab salad, baked crab and pan fried haddock. Every dish was delicious . Well done. Well worth the drive. We had a lovely walk afterwards along the Flaggy Shore nearby .
