A chance discovery as I drove by on a hungry belly, I wasn't disappointed. The specials menu had pan fried cod, which was yummy with potatoes and veg. The chowder was also hearty and tasty. Good value and plenty of Covid spacing and cleanliness.

We had the pleasure of visiting Glynsk house for lunch today. We dropped in whilst passing and were warmly welcomed. We were very impressed with the high standard of Covid 19 hygiene measures in place and felt totally at ease. The waitress was a lovely...girl who made our visit most enjoyable . She told us the specials from the outset and took good care of us. The food was delicious and the price very reasonable. We would highly recommend. There is also a lovely craft shop there. We look forward to returning again.More

After a day driving along the Atlantic Coast we came across this restaurant. It is a lovely place situated at a great spot in this beautiful Connemara. The staff was very nice and kind and both our dishes were to die for, the fish was...so fresh and tasty and well prepared Although this restaurant is not situated in a village I could recommend a detour to have lunch or dinner here.More
