Stopped for lunch on a cool and rainy day in January, food, service and atmosphere just as good as my previous visit domes years ago. Not to be missed when in the wild Wild West. Superb!!

Had dinner in the Tavern at the weekend. There were quite a few diners, considering it was after the holiday period. It's shows how popular this place is with the locals! What better recommendation could you ask for? The staff were 'on the ball'. By the way, the food and the menu choices are top class too!!

We were a family of 7 adults and one baby of 6 months. Nothing was too much or a problem. The food was delicious and very well presented. There was a varied menu available suitable to all tastes. We would highly recommend the Tavern and will return when we next visit Westport.

Everything you'd want from a local, Irish pub. Fantastic food and great service, located just a stone's throw for Croagh Patrick Cottages, where I stayed - a brilliant place.

Spent a week at Old Head Beach and couldn't help but notice how busy this place was. We finally visited it after our family left, much to their disappointment when they heard how much we enjoyed it. The Gluten free black pudding and lamb starters were pure class. Only annoyed we didn't visit it before our last few days. Definitely... More

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
