Fodor's Expert Review Misunderstood Heron

$ Leenane Modern Irish Fodor's Choice

Gaining a steady following from locals and visitors, Misunderstood Heron is serving some of the finest local produce from unlikely quarters---from the back of a food truck. It's usually parked in Killary Loop Trail---and offers guests far more than the standard truck fare like a humble kebab or burger. Instead, expect fresh salmon with pickles, sourdough roast chicken wrap with harissa mayo and red onion, or mussels and lamb to be served with a dollop of good value. And you get to drink in the view overlooking the staggeringly beautiful setting of Killary Fjord.
