Enniscrone has two good restaurants - one is Ait Eile and the other one was in Waterfront hotel. But after visiting the place a week ago we find out that Waterfront is closed.

Beautiful restaurant, friendly staff and food absolutely delicious. We were a group of 10 and every one was really happy with their meals , not one complaint among a few very 'fussy' eaters. Would highly recommend Ait eile and thank you all for a wonderful evening.

Each time my partner and I come back home to Ireland we make the short trip to Enniscrone and come to Gilroys. This time around, the restaurant was especially lively and festive as it was late December and we hadn't booked!
