Poor service, left waiting long time for service. Nice home made jam. Staff noticed us 4 or 5 times before eventually we asked them to take our order. Even our simple order seemed a challenge.

I am an often visitor to Mullaghmore. I remember Eithna's opening even but considering the place being purely sea food focused I have never gave it a chance (I am vegetarian to clarify my point). Last Sunday I decided otherwise and I must admit I absolutely loved the place. Friendly and approachable staff, really nice and cozy interior, books to... More

Eithna's Restaurant stands out owing to its blue exterior and its location opposite the harbour in Mullaghmore. The minute we entered the front door we were warmly greeted and seated. There is a lovely atmosphere and the staff were friendly, helpful and professional. We were there for lunch and the seafood chowder and homemade bread were outstanding. Well worth a... More

We ordered the seafood chowder, lobster bisque, and the seafood combo with crab claws, lobster, and muscles. All the food was quite lovely and the atmosphere was fantastic. I recommend making a booking before hand as this is a popular local restaurant.

Visited Eithna's in October and the seafood platter made the whole trip worthwhile. Great lobster and prawns and almost certainly the best crab claws I've ever tasted. Eithna also rustled up some very fresh gluten free scones to soak up the sauces.

My wife and I joined some friends recently in Mullaghmore and went for dinner in Eithna's on a Sunday evening. The range and quality of seafood available was spectacular. We opted for fishcakes to start and Lobster as the main. Both were excellent with generous helpings. We passed on dessert as we were pretty full but they looked scrumptious. The... More
