Sitting right on the edge of Dundalk Bay and overlooking the Cooley and Mourne mountains, this stolid little guesthouse ("inn" is pushing it) features a quality surf-and-turf restaurant. You'd never know the Glyde was established way back in 1700, as it is now such a casual, no-fuss place. Happily, the hospitality matches the delicious locally sourced food. The menu ranges from fish pie—comfort food at its best—to lobster (the poor critters are housed in a tank tiny enough to make some people lose their appetite). The four-course special is a great deal. There's also a mean Irish breakfast you can enjoy if you book one of the inn's few B&B rooms.
