“Near the Beach, Nice Menu and Good Value”

The Draft House Gastro Pub
Ranked #2 of 10 Restaurants in Strandhill
Certificate of Excellence
Description: 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.

Have been here a few times and have always found it pleasant both for drinks at night and food in the day. The seating is well arrange to allow for nice comfortable experience. The menu has plenty of variety and all is very good value.
The desert idea of getting two half sizes of anything on the menu is absolutely spot on and something we would love to see elsewhere.
There is a lovely beach a stones throw from the door as well as a really nice coast and inland walking trail to stretch the legs after being so well fed.
Will continue to go here!

What a great restaurant. Food and menu are great. Staff are friendly and very helpful. The kids insisted we go back the next night as they loved it do much. Staff went out of their way to get me a cocktail recipe as I had commented on how nice it was. This place was a great find. We need more places like this

Used to live on Northcote Road in London, there was a Draft house there too that was my favourite little boozer. This seems very similar, but nicer in style. Food top notch. Up there with the nicest burger I've had in Ireland.
