Fodor's Review

In the village's only thatched cottage outside the folk park, Gallagher's Restaurant has been wowing for the last two decades, with a strong focus on local, straight-from-the-sea catches. After a recent renovation the nooks and crannies are gone, with a more open layout and a new-found bustle. Non-fishy options like sirloin steak or chicken with black pudding are also available. The crusted St. Tola's goat-cheese starter is decadently delicious. Reservations are recommended. Gallagher's sister property, JP Clarke's, annexed in a high-ceiling mountain-lodge-style property, offers reliable food with early-bird specials.
