Johnny and Paddy have honed hospitality to a fine edge. Boxty is a delicious traditional dish, and Paddy generously shared his recipe after our visit. A mix of locals and tourists, but all were treated with excellent service throughout the evening.

It was the best meal I have had in a long time! The staff is great and the food is even better. I had the muscles and Lamb Boxty; my husband had the seafood soup and the rack of lamb, both were amazing!

Made a reservation in advance for a Saturday early evening meal when they opened at 6 pm. Lucky we did as they are a very busy restaurant. The restaurant never felt crowded, however, because the placement of their tables allow for some privacy and space....More

Set above Bricín Shop, Bricín Restaurant and Boxty House is a well known name on the lips of many people. Opened in November 1991, its popularity is down to the fine food produced by Owner/Chef Paddy McGuire and by the warmth of welcome and hospitality shown front of house by Owner Johnny McGuire. Between them they have an exceptional product that has been 21 years plus in the making.
