Fodor's Review

Look left at the bend before Bunratty Castle and you will see a grouping of low thatched cottages, all gleaming with fresh whitewash. Inside the various cottages you will find both an upmarket seafood restaurant, Gallagher's, and its affiliated gastropub, both of which enjoy a high reputation for food. The pub is an airy, high-ceilinged open-plan room, the rustic beams and sandstone floor smartly contrasting with snazzy leather-upholstered chairs. Its menu is an eclectic

crowd-pleaser, with something for all tastes, from the pot of mussels in garlic and white wine cream to the char-grilled turkey steak with fiery pepper sauce, or char-grilled ribeye steak with chunky chips. Such is its popularity (kids love it too, and have their own nifty little menu) that you would be well advised to book a table online on weekends and holidays.
