Forde's Restaurant

Happy customers and good lighting create a relaxed atmosphere at Liam Forde’s informal restaurant in a renovated building near the Ballast Office.


On the first floor, overlooking the harbour, it has mirrors reflecting lots of candles and, as darkness falls, lights twinkling across the harbour are highly atmospheric.


Although set up in the pared-down modern style, fresh flowers and candles on well-spaced polished tables create a caring feeling, which is carried through to the food. Liam's varied seasonal set and à la carte menus offer value and, although there’s an understandable leaning towards local seafood, the choice is wide, with vegetarian (and vegan) options listed.


Steaks and Wexford mussels are popular options and servings are generous. Everything is made on the premises and well-trained, knowledgeable staff are courteous and efficient, and there’s an interesting, informative wine list. Sunday lunch and the short dinner menu offer especially good value.
