My wife and I visited Ireland in mid-September 2012 and stayed at a guest house near Clonbur. When asked for a nearby restaurant recommendation she immediately responded "why Eddie's of course." We took her recommendation and WERE WE GLAD WE DID. The Eddie's restaurant and pub were attached to a small hotel. After perusing their pretty extensive menu -- meaning there are options for anyone -- we both selected from the fish menu, as we had heard about the great seafood in this part of Ireland.
There is no simple way to put this -- both meals were world class. My wife had fresh salmon -- cooked to perfection and gently covered with an amazing sauce, and presented across a bed of bed of mashed potatoes. Words just don't do this justice. The presentation was worthy of a 3-star restaurant, and the flavor/taste was other worldly. The salmon was cooked perfectly, not over done and too many do; and the sauce was simply incredible. I ordered another fish dish -- fresh cod. While not quite as exquisite as the salmon dish, it also was fantastic. Bottom line -- the ambience was more pub than restaurant, the service and wait staff helpful and efficient but not overly intrusive, and the food was simply amazing. My only regret was that we were leaving the next day and couldn't go back again.
