We have been to the Draft House on a number of occasions and it has never disappointed. Food is of a consistently high quality and they offer a wide range of local and more widely available beers. Staff are friendly and efficient. Thoroughly recommend.

Solid craft beer selection and good eats in one of the best coastal locations near Sligo. Took a tired interior and turned it into a hip environment to hang out.

Quirky and engaging, The Draft House gastropub is a perfect fit for pretty Strandhill village on the Wild Atlantic Way. At The Draft House, “We don’t do ordinary” - we’ve reinvented the rulebook when it comes to eating out in the northwest. Talented head chef Lee Mastin seeks out the freshest and best local produce, transforming it into delicious, seasonally led lunch and dinner menus. Presentation and prices are equally attractive. Add in an extensive range of Irish craft beers and it’s easy to see why The Draft House is so popular with both locals and visitors. The decor on both floors is eclectic and appealing as well as comfortable. Regular live acoustic music adds to the welcoming atmosphere and the service is both efficient and relaxed. Original touches include showers for hungry surfers and warm kennels for the dog walker’s best friend. The Draft House has won the Bord Bia ‘Just Ask’ award and Best Casual Dining Experience at the Gold Medal Awards.
