White Horses Restaurant

Christine Power and Geraldine Flavin’s delightfully bright and breezy café-restaurant on the main street of this famous seaside village of Ardmore is one of those places that changes its character through the day but always has style.


They’re open for all the little lifts that visitors need through the day - morning coffee, afternoon tea - as well as imaginative lunches (plus their traditional Sunday lunch, which runs all afternoon) and a more ambitious à la carte evening menu.


Vegetarian dishes feature on both menus - a pasta dish during the day perhaps, and spinach & mushroom crêpe with toasted brie in the evening - and there’s a good balance between traditional favourites like steaks and more adventurous fare: a daytime fish dish could be deep-fried plaice with tartare sauce, for example, while its evening counterpart might be grilled darne of Helvick salmon on asparagus, with a wine & cream sauce.


Attractive and pleasant to be in, this is a friendly, well-run restaurant and equally good for a reviving cuppa and a gateau or pastry from the luscious home-made selection on display, or a full meal. Outdoor seating - a few pavement tables and some more in the back garden - might appeal If you're lucky with the weather.


Even at its busiest, service is well-organised and efficient.

Seats 50 (+some outside seating). In summer (May-Sep) open: Tue-Sun 11-'late'; L 12.30-3.30, D 6.30-8.30/9pm. In winter (Oct-Apr) open weekends only: Fri from 6 pm, Sat 11-11 & Sun 12-6. A la carte except Sun - Set L about €27. Licensed; House Wine €18.50; sc discretionary. Air conditioning. Closed Mon all year, except bank hols (bank hol opening as Sun), 1 Jan-13 Feb.
