Westport has many fine restaurants, with everything from hearty traditional Irish fair to oriental fusion food on the menu. Whether you’re in the mood for a relaxed informal meal or something a little more special, you will find something to suit from the huge variety of options on offer.
Unsurprisingly given its location on Clew Bay, local seafood is Westport’s speciality, and is offered up in many tantalising forms all over town. It is particularly good when eaten from one of the many restaurants right near the water, so that the smell of sea air adds to the atmosphere as you tuck into a truly fresh and delicious meal.
The Tavern, situated right at the foot of Croagh Patrick, is one of Westport’s finest restaurants. It offers a warm and friendly atmosphere and an extensive menu including an excellent selection of local seafood. Since opening in 1999 The Tavern has earned a well deserved and enviable reputation for the quality of both the food and the hospitality. Their emphasis on using local ingredients makes The Tavern the ideal restaurant for anyone looking to sample the best the region has to offer, and with their very reasonable prices, there’s no reason not to go!
