Talbot Hotel

Situated in the heart of one of Ireland’s furthest flung towns, and one almost surrounded by the sea, this friendly place has long been popular with locals who like to meet in the famous bar, An Chéibh (“the anchor”) and, following recent development by the Talbot family, it now also offers luxurious accommodation for visitors to this fascinating area. 


Returning visitors familiar with the cosy, traditional bar have quite a surprise in store when they see the bright, modern style of this colourful new boutique hotel - and particularly the glamorous decor which, believe it or not, has an oriental connection, and is most unlikely in this remote and beautifully rugged corner of north Mayo. But, as with most things in rural Ireland, there's a fascinating story attached to that, so be sure to ask about it while you're there.


Traditional it is not, but it certainly has a wow factor and people love it - perhaps most of all because the old-fashioned qualities of Irish friendliness and hospitality are still very much in place. Not surprisingly, it's become popular as a wedding venue and for short breaks, but the hotel also offers good conference and meeting facilities, making it a good choice for business too.


The Barony, where breakfast is served, is the hotel's new restaurant, and it has become the in-place in the area for special meals. However, fans of the characterful An Chéibh bar and lounge will be pleased to find that, although it has been extended to provide a more modern section to the rear, the front bar hasn't changed too much.


With its nautical memorabilia and local photos of bygone times, it's a comfortable and relaxing spot to enjoy a bar meal. Although there’s plenty of choice for non-fish eaters, menus are understandably weighted in favour of local seafood, as is the Specials Board, offering seasonal fish such as mackerel or salmon - and their Fishermans Platter should satisfy the hungriest traveller.


There are special set menus on two days in the year Fair Day (15 Aug) and Heritage Day (tbc).
