We booked the restaurant months before our visit and was not disappointed, if you like good food, good atmosphere and local friendly service Linnanes will not disappoint. I know it's not seafood but the steaks medium rare yummy yummy.

Went for lunch, the fish was excellent as was the freshly baked, warm brown bread. We had a lovely view of the sea and pier at Flaggy Shore. Can't wait to return!

I am so sorry, but Linnane's is on the South side of Galway bay and a very long way from Westport and Clew bay, so I cannot help. But I wish you a great holiday. best,Ian
