Had much needed cold pints and chips after climbing The Reek in a very hot Mat day. Guinness cold and delicious, cider same...chips were delicious. The full menu looked great and I had serious food envy of the people next to us who had mussels!

We wanted a good lunch, but gave up in Louisburgh. We were told to try The Tavern, at Murrisk, on the road to Westport and were glad that we did. Comfortable seating, good menu and good food.

A warm bowl of chowder and a glass of Guinness in the Tavern was perfect after a Croagh Patrick climb. We enjoyed our visit.

We arrived at The Tavern and were greeted by Aine who seated us very quickly. Service was excellent and Aine made us feel very welcome. The food was excellent and we will surely be returning in the near future.

Best place to eat after climbing Croagh Patrick. Amazing chowder and cold beer is what you need after the hike. Truly recommend.
