Stop looking at the menu and just order the mussels. You're in Leenaun. Look at the fjord. Do you see the fjord? What are they doing in the fjord? Oh, they're harvesting mussels? So why would you order anything else? Truly delicious mussels, never had any better. I would come here and eat again in a heartbeat. In fact, I... More

We ate here one evening while staying at Delphi Lodge. While situated in a small town, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality and diversity of the menu. Great food, but seafood chowder was our favorite!

A lovely little place with a nice ambiance and delicious food. Very accommodating but would recommend booking ahead during the summer months as places are limited

We dropped into the Blackberry Cafe quite by chance. Leenane is a tiny little village on the way to magic destinations in both directions. Most of customer arrive in summer so, it is rather small by necessity. Therein lies its beauty and what it might lack in size, it makes up for in quality. Comprehensive wine list. Our great loss...
