Visit McDermott's Pub for a refreshing pint and a delicious dinner menu. The service is exceptional and the atmosphere warm and inviting. My son particularly enjoyed their half roast duck entree, he couldn't stop talking about how much he enjoyed it.

Went to this restaurant today and the beef stew was delicious. It was the perfect weather to eat on the terrace after visiting the Cliffs!

This was obviously a local favorite. It gets crowded for the evening music session so arrive early. We had a simple dinner here (I had gluten free soup and my husband had stew - both delicious) and stayed on for drinks and the live music...More
