This is a great place to stop in and have a couple of drinks while shopping in town. We stopped in for a drink while shopping and looking around. Great bartender and conversation

Had a few drinks here, fun place, mixed ages- nice gin menu and staff are lovely. It was right in the heart of the town, so central if you want to take in a few places.

My husband and I booked a table in the new restaurant Jalan Jalan! I blame management for the chaos! We were there on a Saturday evening, obviously someone messed up with the bookings, guests were arriving and being sent away again, there was probably about...More

Brennan’s Lane is in the heart of Ballina, on the evocatively named Garden Street. From outside it looks quite small, but this is deceiving as it stretches way back and is actually huge. It has an almost Tardis quality in the amount of space inside. Downstairs is the bar, where some pretty serious gigs take place while you will find the restaurant on the first floor. The dining room is beautifully designed and features exposed brick walls, cool sofa seats, plenty of well spaced tables and chairs and some interesting art, as well as a series of old style butchers blackboards showing farm animals and the parts the different cuts of meat come from. The room is long and fairly narrow, but well thought out design means it feels light and airy, and the open plan kitchen at one end adds to the sense of space. It is modern and elegant, warm and inviting. Description from Taste of Ireland by Paolo Tullio
