We arrived late on Friday evening and the staff were very pleasant. They made sure that we got our orders taken before the kitchen closed. I can highly recommend the steak. Large portions. Plenty to choose from the menu. Excellent selection of deserts. Great location beside the Shannon.

We were very disappointed with the service on this occasion. Have been in this restaurant on numerous occasions and was very pleased with the food and service. Our waiter was not very helpful and was actually bordering on rude. We asked for something that was not on menu and were abruptly told you had to order from menu. Our food... More

Fantastic location on the Shannon. We ate in a posh dining room through the back which lacked atmosphere but it wasn't very busy which may have been why it lacked atmosphere. The bar/pub area looked a lot livelier. The food was pricey and to be honest we've had better in most pubs in Ireland. Not great value.

This establishment is well known in the Midlands as a place for good food and it certainly didn't disappoint ! We were met at the door and quickly ushered to a table at the rear of the bar even though it looked full. The chowder was excellent as were the mains of fish dishes. Staff are on the ball and...

Tried the evening menu at Keenans one evening while driving home from Mayo to Dublin. The place was quite busy with a good atmosphere, staff were very friendly and efficient and there were tons of knick knacks around the walls, really interesting to see. My better half had homemade veg soup to start while I had the black pudding on... More

I went out for dinner with my friends recently. The food, the atmosphere were great. But the service was not as good as it used to be. One of the boys staff who served us had so much attitude. He was really rude. Such a nice restaurant. We often used to stop over there on our way to Westport. But... More
