Great Seafood and a View
It was crab for all three of us - Crab cakes, Crab sandwich, Crab salad. All were fresh and full of Crab. Good Service, topped by a Great View of the bay, made this a great lunch stop. We'll be back.

3. Monk's Bar
Reviewed By JoeGDublin - Dublin, Ireland
Our first visit was simply overwhelming for the quality and volume of the seafood. The Prawn Pil-pil was intended as a shared starter between just 2, but 3 of us couldn’t finish them if we were to leave any room for the main course. My fish and chips featuring beautiful hake was delicious. For our second night in Ballyvaughan it was a no- brainier to go there again and our second visit was every bit as enjoyable as our first. Great food, great service and lovely atmosphere made Monk’s unforgettable.

Great B'day Dinner for my Wife
The dining experience at Sheedy's was first rate. We were greeted at the door when we arrived early for our booking and we were shown a seat in the sun room and our drink orders were quickly taken and delivered. We sat and perused the menu and Martina took our orders. We were shown our table after we had finished our drinks.I had the soup. A cauliflower soup with a unique oil garnish infused with rocket. My wife had the monk fish started, a large portion for a starter. It was prepared in a tempura style. We both had the lamb, some of the best we've had in Ireland .... and that is saying something since we live in Ireland. In addition it was cooked to the doness that we request, medium-rare.

By Appointment Only
We first visited this pub and restaurant in 2016 whilst staying nearby. Being back in Co Clare this year, we wanted to revisit. We arranged an afternoon tea. Without doubt it was the best afternoon tea any of us have ever had (although none of us actually drink tea!). The home baking was so delicious it was impossible to resist and we just couldn't believe we finished the lot (it would have been rude not to). On the day we visited we had two types of sandwich, vol au vents, the most delicious rhubarb tarts, scones with two different jams and gorgeous boozy tiramisu fingers. Booking is essential, but that is better than a spur of the moment thing, you can enjoy the anticipation too!Dear Wally and Lorna D,Thanks so much for your most kind and complimentary review which we very much appreciate. It was a pleasure having you at Kilshanny House again and hope you enjoyed the rest of your time here in North Clare in the beautiful sunshine on the Wild Atlantic Way. Hope to see you again if you choose to come back to Ireland for your holidays. Give me the heads up and I will have the kettle down...(oops, no tea for you!) and I'll have the good china out!!

Standard cafe food the only good thing is the staff
We went here because it is rated number 1 in Ennistymon and I have to say we were all disappointed. The place is a standard cafe that serves standard cafe food and is nothing special. The only reason this has got a three rating is because of the staff. We wouldn't be in a hurry to go back.
