Fodor's Expert Review O'Looney's Waves Restaurant

$ Lahinch Irish

Travelers come here to get up close and personal with the surf from behind a bowl of steaming Atlantic seafood chowder. Floor-to-ceiling windows capture the breath of the bay from a cozy distance, except in storm season when it can be a little too close for comfort. Images of the property's defiant stand against giant ocean waves have gone global. The menu is concise but covers ground and sea with a salmon, hake, beef, and vegetarian. Expect a wait in high season.
