We strive to ensure that everyone has the most perfect day possible and where better to celebrate such an occasion than in a romantic castle.Belleek Castle is a home away from home and is well worth a visit - we hope to be welcoming you here soon!
Best restaurant visited in the town. Really great food & friendly service. Good bar. Easy to get taxi to/from restaurant (<10 mins wait) Only improvement is the wine list which needs an overhaul. Not that extensive and its not easy to understand their categorizations.

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.
It is rare these days to find a restaurant that is not only great in all departments but extremely reasonably priced. For a start the atmosphere created in the old Bond Store is wonderful and welcoming as are the staff. The food is all fresh from local suppliers who are credited on the menu. Great starters, superb main courses and wonderful desserts.
No fancy designer dishes here, good honest beautifully cooked food served on sparkling white China. For starters deep fried brie, seafood chowder, crabmeat and smoked salmon stack are among the tasty offerings. The main courses range from steak, handmade beef burgers that put fast food to shame, duck two ways and tempura battered fish and chips with fresh cod in huge portions and even superb curries. Desserts include crepes, apple and berry crumble, cheesecake of the day all priced less than €5. The whole menu is outstanding value. Good reasonable wine list and great Guinness. It shows it can be done at a price that will not break the bank. In fact it was so good one dining companion queried if they had left something off the bill it was so reasonable! The toilet facilities are absolutely spotless and it is a great place to go for an enjoyable evening. It makes you wonder why others cannot produce menus of this standard at such reasonable prices. Absolutely fabulous and I will be returning often.

Brennan’s Lane is in the heart of Ballina, on the evocatively named Garden Street. From outside it looks quite small, but this is deceiving as it stretches way back and is actually huge. It has an almost Tardis quality in the amount of space inside. Downstairs is the bar, where some pretty serious gigs take place while you will find the restaurant on the first floor. The dining room is beautifully designed and features exposed brick walls, cool sofa seats, plenty of well spaced tables and chairs and some interesting art, as well as a series of old style butchers blackboards showing farm animals and the parts the different cuts of meat come from. The room is long and fairly narrow, but well thought out design means it feels light and airy, and the open plan kitchen at one end adds to the sense of space. It is modern and elegant, warm and inviting. Description from Taste of Ireland by Paolo Tullio
A group of us, 4 adults and 7 children ate in Brennan's lane bar and restaurant for the first time today. The restaurant located upstairs is clean, cosy and nicely decorated. The Sunday lunch menu had a nice selection and wasn't overly priced. The children's food came first which was good. Only complaint, the restaurant had wha seemed only 1 waitress, we were waiting a long time to get ketchup. The waitress was over worked and restaurant could've done with more waiting staff. Having said that, the food was so so tasty and one of the nicest Sunday lunches I've had in a long time. I look forward to returning to Brennan's Lane bar and restaurant.

Indian restaurant serving authentic, exquisite Indian cuisine cooked by Indians. Also serving Indian wines. Conveniently located on the main street in Ballina, open mainly for dinner, with lunch as an option by booking in advance.
Said we'd give this place a go as we like to share the market around and its always nice to give new places a chance.....we won't be back as we were given a bottle of 'Cimarosa' Rosé wine which we know is the Lidl own brand. It's been a couple of years since we've been there but I'd say our review speaks for itself in our reason for not having returned since...

As the name suggests, this is more a bar that serves food than a restaurant that serves drinks. Having said that, the food was still good. Chowder and smoked salmon for wifey, and lamb chump for me. Better than expected, and I'll look in again next time I'm in the area. Friendly staff did a good selling job for the musician, but we only listened for one drink.

Started to snow so we ducked into the pub for warmth and Guinness. Sat for 3 hours watching the whole town walk in and out served by truly professional staff, the waitress was amazing and the two lads behind the bar were very friendly and relaxed as were all the locals. Food was soup or mixture of paninis, baps, flatbreads and wraps with good variety of fillings. After a large breakfast at my hotel i was not hungry but had to try the food as everyone seemed so happy, it was great.

Located in the heart of Ballina, we offer a huge selection of delicious meals to suit all the family.
Just wanting a quick bite after a morning in Enniscrone we decided to try the Junction as it seemed like the busiest place in town which is always a good indicator. The menu was pretty comprehensive but we availed of their lunchtime soup and Sandwich...MoreThank you for your kind review, we always appreciate feed back but it makes it extra nice when we know we have another satisfied customer. Hope to see you back again sometime soon.
