a very good destination on the coast road between westport and louisburg. always busy,which says a lot as people are clearly happy to make the effort to get to the place. a comfortable pub serving better than pub food at very fair prices. friendly and efficient service from a smiley bunch of bright young people. what's not to like ?...

My son and I hiked Croagh Patrick and were freezing cold when we came down off of the mountain. This pub was the perfect place to warm up (next to the fireplace) and refuel. We are vegetarians, I had the veggie soup (yum) and my son had the alfredo pasta (better than average.) Great atmosphere and good service with a... More

We visited this Pub for the first time in September on my wife's birthday. Lovely atmosphere, nice selection of food, well presented and tasty. I believe they have live music here but generally in the Summer months. Great area for walks along the sea front.

A friend recommended The Tavern and it was spot on. The service and the food were really lovely. I had the baked cod with mussels and it was exactly what I wanted. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Nice open fire on a very cold November night. I thought they'd left the drinks off the bill because it seemed too cheap... More

Visited the Tavern with my wife. We had dinner and a few drinks. We shared a stater lamb dish with a middle eastern twist. For main course we had the Coques St Jacques and the seafood penne. Both were superb. The scallops dish has been, for me, a signature dish for this restaurant for many years. I had almost forgotten... More

The tavern was brought back to... More
