This is a good place for a quick stop on the way to the Cliffs of Moher if you like smoked salmon. The salmon here is fresh and delicious. They have a short movie, around 7 minutes, that details the smoking process.

We looked for the smokehouse, yet it was burned down. How ironic. Even though the restaurant was destroyed, the smokehouse remains active. We went next door to a sports bar to enjoy the food, drink microbrew beer and enjoyed watching sofa with locals. What a...More

If your into smoked salmon, this is the place to be. The taste tasting was inspiring, but not as inspiring as eating the beautiful at the salmon. Worth a visit.

We stopped in on our way through the Burren area on our way to the Cliffs of Moher. The street level café had samples of the smoked fish, and you could have cold or hot smoked fish (which really depends on your personal texture preferences)....More
