We visited linnanes recently to try the seafood chowder , the service was quick and the chowder was fresh , we also had the seafood platter which is very filling but worth it , definitely worth another visit.

Enjoyed a lovely dinner in Linnane's in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere. Obviously the menu is mainly fish but there was a chicken and steak option

I am so sorry, but Linnane's is on the South side of Galway bay and a very long way from Westport and Clew bay, so I cannot help. But I wish you a great holiday. best,Ian
