A holiday village and marina on the western shore of Lough Derg may seem an unlikely place to find one of Ireland’s most interesting smart-casual restaurants, but this is a delightful spot and well worth seeking out, especially in sunny summer weather.
Although an associated events venue commands the prime waterside location nearby, this former pub provides a warm and characterful setting for good cooking which showcases the finest local ingredients, in seasonally-led menus that offer seriously good delicious food at affordable prices.
With a welcoming log fire burning in a huge stone fireplace on chilly days, black ‘beams’, original artwork and an open kitchen all creating a space that is both welcoming and full of interest, this lovely place is understandably one of the region’s favourite summer dining destinations..
There’s accommodation on site, and boats are available for hire at the marina too, by the half day, day, or week
All round, AnnaCarriga Brasserie & Bistro is a great asset to the Mid-West region – and one well worth remembering when planning a trip.
