We tried twice to get a table & was finally successful. I had steak hubby had T bone, both came with generous portions of chips and salad about €52 for the two. Both steaks were good , very popular with local families do does get very busy & noisy. No frills dining area and food but still worth the visit...

Rode into town on extremely hot day and sat down with cold beer and IPad to look,for accommodation. Asked previously at Tourist Info and was told no pubs in town had rooms. After a couple of beers asked at bar and yes they had 1 room only available so took it sight unseen as I couldn't ride anywhere by then....

The choice was here or the fisherman's club for dinner. The locals advised this was the best meal in town. The service was great and the food really tasty and good sized serves. Being in Eden I went for the fish which I loved.

The wind blew up so we missed out on eating on the deck which has a great view over two fold bay. Easy parking just below the deck. Very popular with the locals on a Friday...

We chose to stay here as we decided to try pub accommodation on our trip. This seemed like a central location and as there was thebistro below it was easy to have dinner and go upstairs to sleep. The room was small with a basic double bed, small refrigerator, TV and an en suite bathroom. The bed was cramped in...

The room was very run down. No air con. No blinds/curtains to stop daylight coming in. Stains in sink, on carpet and scrapes on wall. Not dirty, just old and is desperate need of a refurb. Staff however were lovely and food was good. 2 stars because it was not a good night's sleep at all. Room so didn't come...
