Great place, good food. Huge portions. Friendly staff. Lovely courtyard is a wonderful surprise as the road in is nothing too impressive.

We were recommended this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. Six of us ate in it twice and enjoyed the ambiance and food immensely. Possibly the best eating we had in Ballina.

We happened across this restaurant by chance, as it is tucked into a courtyard, and are we ever glad we did. The staff was super and all of the food delicious! One of the highlights of our trip.

The Bond Store Warehouse (now Dillons) was built in the early 1800s beside the river Moy. It stored the imported liquor and porter that had been placed under Custom Seals until the appropriate duty had been paid. Dillons Terrace was of significant commercial importance and is steeped in local history. The stone floor in Dillons Bar originated from Kilmainham Gaol and a huge chimney breast in the bar was once used as a hopper to process grain.
