Connemara and County Mayo Restaurants

The Bards Den

  • Irish

Updated 04/28/2014

Fodor's Review

Many visitors to Connemara share a memory of the Den's huge stove, where weary travelers have dried their soaking clothes and warmed frozen hands while sipping restorative glasses of stout. While the low-ceilinged, warrenlike pub has long served food—and great traditional Irish music at night—it now has a restaurant with blackboard menu, a plain, pine-floored room suitable for families with children. The food (last orders at 9 pm) is fresh and local, and includes smoked salmon, Connemara lamb stew, and prime Irish beef T-bone steaks.
