Fodor's Review

An outing to this traditional pub in the tiny village of Murrisk—at the foot of Croagh Patrick, just across the road from the seashore—is a popular excursion from Westport. Its distinctive, fuchsia-pink facade leads into a simple, family-run tavern where the emphasis is firmly on food. Carefully sourced local produce including Clew Bay seafood, Connemara lamb, and farmhouse cheese from the nearby village of Carrowholly are served in hearty portions. The bar also has a kids' menu. Fishermen arrive regularly with freshly landed langoustine, which are then poached and served in garlic butter. Upstairs a more elaborate à la carte menu ($$$) is served in the restaurant, with a quieter, candlelit atmosphere.
