Red Cliff Lodge Restaurant

I got a chance to visit the newly managed red cliff lodge restaurant in Spanish Point and I’m so glad I did! My friend and I couldn’t wait to try out the new food which looked delicious in the photos I had seen. On arrival at the restaurant, we were met by the lovely waitress Lauren and the owners Eimear & Chris (The chef, who went out of his way to come out of the kitchen and chat to us! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ). I had previously visited Chris & Eimear’s last restaurant in Lanzarote so it was such a great surprise to find out they were moving home to Ireland and that their new restaurant is so close to me! ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช

We were sat down at a lovely big table which was ideal for us considering how much food we were about to order! There’s a lovely relaxing atmosphere in the restaurant with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean just across the road!

We visited for Sunday lunch and my first though of the menu was that it was full of choice! They have something to suit everyone and it also included a list of allergens which is great for those who may be allergic to something.

It was a tough decision to choose my starter but I decided to go with the potato & leek soup. The soup tasted great and was served with a plate of bread and butter which was also delicious.

Then we moved onto the main course, I ordered the pan fried chicken and my friend ordered the pork belly. The presentation was fantastic and it tasted just as good as it looked. We also got a serving of carrots & potato’s to go with our main course.

We barely had room left for the dessert but gave it a go anyways! I ordered the chocolate brownie which was served with honeycomb and brown bread ice cream which I had heard so much about so I couldn’t wait to dig in! The brownie was heated and was absolutely delicious, definitely one of the nicest desserts I’ve ever tasted!

My friend ordered the fudge ice cream sundae and he wasn’t disappointed either.

I would highly recommend the red cliff lodge restaurant for anyone looking for a top class meal at a very reasonable price. Whether you are a local to Spanish point or visiting the area, it well worth the visit but make sure you book ahead of time to avoid disappointment! I have attached a link for their Facebook page here. Check them out! Thank you Eimear & Chris for a fantastic meal, I cannot wait to visit again ๐Ÿ˜

Flanagans seafood bar

Earlier in the week, I was contacted by a member of staff at Flanagans bar about their new seafood bar/restaurant which is now open. Flanagans is located on the Main Street in Lahinch, county Clare. I have often been in Flanagans bar with friends and when I heard about the seafood bar I could not wait to try it out!

I was invited to visit the restaurant for a taste of their new menu. Myself and my sister Jennifer were looking forward to having our meal. The menu looked fantastic and the staff were so welcoming to us when we arrived.

We were amazed by the choice of selection on the menu, they had everything! The hardest part was trying to decide what we should order. I ordered the fish and chips, while Jennifer ordered the fresh crab open sandwich, which was fresh crab meat served on homemade brown bread. It looked amazing and we could not wait to dig in๐Ÿด

Our meal was perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Flanagans. From start to finish, it was very enjoyable. I love fish and chips, and this was by far the best fish and chips dinner I have ever tasted. The tartar sauce was the perfect dip and the green peas made it even better ๐Ÿ˜ The bar is in an ideal location with many visitors visiting for holidays. I would highly recommend a visit to Flanagans for your seafood dinner, you will not regret it!
