More of a restaurant than a pub, but still has good Guinness and a range of other drinks. Really good fish and chips, and massives of choice. I suppose it would be great after climbing Croagh Patrick but sadly I had a sore toe and...More

As always the Tavern is top class. Anytime we go to Westport, we look forward to eating here, Food is always fresh and the seafood is to die for! Service is always friendly too. Highly recommend the Tavern in Murrisk, just outside Westport.😊
