Delicious, real food served generously! The service is also splendid, and a special thanks to our waitress Helena who met us at the pier when we were leaving. Another great thing about this place is Odie, the neighbours cat, who frequents the bench outside. A real Pangur Bán.

We were starving when we arrived on Inis Mór late on the sunday. We heard rumours about a place not far away from the B&B which served food, so we went there. And we didn't leave until many hours later. It was a really pleasant place to eat and drink, and the hosts were very kind. The waiters served us... More

We loved our time at Ti Joe Watty's. We dreamed of going to dinner with a pony and trap, but it rained hard, on and off, all night. So glorious to sit by a turf fire with great cocktails and lovely pints of Guinness in the stormy weather. Delectable food! The music put the whole experience over the top. Best... More

We came here on Saturday night after doing a bar crawl of the island. The vibe was friendly, lively and everyone was in good spirits. The staff were attentive and the service was quick. There was a band playing which added to the good vibe. We sat outside for some of the night where it was heated and chatted to... More
