Had lunch with a few friends here recently and it was fabulous. The restaurant itself is a quaint cottage with lovely furnishing and a fantastic view. There are tables outside also which we were lucky enough to be able to spend some time at in the sun.
The menu is lovely and seems to use all local produce. There's a great selection of wine too.
The three of us couldn't pass up the special of the day which was open crab sandwiches. Homemade white and brown bread, beautiful salad and super fresh and tasty crab. The presentation was gorgeous.
We had a coffee afterwards which was really good too and needed to face into corkscrew hill where we met a bus on one of the smaller bends. I would definitely make the effort to go have lunch here.

We had the salmon and mackerel plate and it was delicious. This is a new venture and we hope it goes from strength to strength.

A lovely old stone building ( maybe once a stable?) houses this out of the way stop...Food was tasty and just the right amount, I had the chicken salad and a lot of times there are too many greens, but this was perfect. Since it is a stone, if found it a little chilly, but the warmth of'the owner ( and my Aran sweater) made me overlook the chill....also there was a stove in the dining room, but we were not lucky enough to sit beside it. All in all, a grand experience for a reasonable,price.

I have made over a dozen attempts to eat here over the last couple of years and have never found it open.

I have avoided July and August but have tried other times in the summer holiday season as well as shoulder season and low season. The signs leading you there are displayed telling you that it is open daily for food and fine wines but on arrival it has always been deserted with no notices to let you know the truth of the situation.

I'm giving up, I like to support small enterprises but not ones that have no respect for their customers.

I was in the Burren region some years ago in search of the famous Gregans Castle. I was accompanied by my elderly mother. It transpired that no lunch was available midweek at Gregans but a stones throw away we spotted a sign for a "wine bar". Now a wine bar is not something one expects to find in the middle of the rugged and stunning countryside that is the Burren. We had a beautiful lunch there and we promised ourselves a return trip. I have been in the Burren numerous times since and as I could never find this place, I assumed that either it had closed down or that we had been dreaming! However out on the same drive just last month, there it is "Burren Fine Wine and Food Company". I had not taken account of the seasonal nature of the little businesses in the Burren. So we had the most beautiful lunch of quiche, chowder and locally sourced salads. The owner is a lovely friendly person and the feeling of hospitality and quality of produce does indeed have a dreamlike quality! Do be cautious of its seasonality.
