“Nancy's Barn was the winner of the world champion seafood chowder competition, If you are in the area this is one place you have to try. If you are not big into fish, I recommend the Glashedy Stacker.”

“Only half hour drive to gain a wonderful food experience you will want to repeat. You will love the tiny tarts that came out to tease you when waiting for your starters and the warm breads and soft butter are irresistable. The set dishes were so beautifully presented you will want to photograph them. I won't go on and I just ask that you don't miss out on delicous food! Make sure to book!”

“The Tap Room is the culmination of this thinking, with three local businesses – Kinnegar Brewing, Sacarpello & Co and Rathmullan house, working in unison to provide a memorable dining experience. The focus here is on real stone baked pizzas courtesy of Scarpello & Co. from the outdoor wood fired pizza oven, plus a selection of Irish craft beers on tap from Kinnegar Brewery.”
