Overlooking Caragh Lake, this eatery provides both visual and palatable joys. The Lakeside Restaurant has been featured in both The Good Hotel Guide and The Michelin Guide, and provides elegant twists on a number of seafood options, with its Confit of Atlantic Cod being one of the finest.

Meals here are made with locally-sourced ingredients, almost guaranteeing their freshness.
Fisherman's Bar and Skellig Restaurant
