Dinner in Ireland

We'll be in Ireland September 22-29. We're staying in Limerick, Castlebar (Westport) and Dublin. I'm looking for restaurant recommendations for Irish food- fabulous food and nice atmosphere. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    1. Michelin star restaurant Mint in Dublin is fantastic, but that depends on your budget!

      What kind of food are you after?

      For something more affordable with a good varied menu in Limerick or Dublin, try Luigi Malones


      1. Cafe Rua in Castlebar is a well regarded spot but if you are passing through Ballinrobe, try JJ Gannons which has a nice selection of wines to go with some interesting a la carte options.
        The Mermaid Cafe, Dame St in Dublin is worth a visit - you can check their menu on their website.

        1. Healys in Pontoon has a good reputation. Pontoon is near Foxford in Mayo so by Irish standards not that far from Castlebar (20-25 miles).

          Pontoon is aloso very pretty and Healys overlooks the lake.
