Located in a refurbished old stone building that once was a customs bond store. Lovely stone archways overlook a stone courtyard. Friendly staff and lovely food. Warm ambiance. After our lovely meal, we stayed until the wee hours, and felt right at home.

We were a family of four, the food was excellent, fresh and tasty. All four of us had fish and were not disappointed. The kids menu was very good and keenly priced. I highly recommend this restaurant . Staff are very good and brilliant with the kids.

This is the restaurant we visit most in Ballina. The food is keenly priced and always of a high standard. Bubbly & cheerful atmosphere but not too noisy. This is a very family friendly restaurant but it's not like visiting a creche. A couple out on their own could easily enjoy their evening! A well run establishment with attentive staff.... More

Ballina was originally one of Ireland's major ports. 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.
