If you want to treat your family or friends to a taste of authentic Ireland read how Irelands most celebrated food journalists Dr.John & Sally McKenna describe the experience. The Long Dock have consistently been awarded the The McKennas’ Guide Plaque, the most respected badge of merit in Irish contemporary food, awarded only to those who are described in their guides.
“Long before anyone talked about gastropubs or had any idea of what the term could mean, Tony and Imelda in The Long Dock were serving stellar cooking in one of the most comfortable traditional pubs on the West Coast. The Long Dock is, then, the original Irish gastropub, home to welcoming comfort and an always-lit fire, and home to cutting-edge cooking that showcases the best fish and shellfish of the region in a uniquely satisfying style. Tony’s chowder is the bowl of seafoody goodness from Heaven-no one makes a better chowder-and because he always uses local Irish Seafood, the sweet and salty flavours of the signature crab tarts, and the grilled hake with samphire, and the classic fish pie, are distinctively delicious, and deservedly famous. Great ice creams are just the thing for pudding, and you will also find those ices for sale in their lovely Parlour shop.”
Georgina Campbell is Ireland’s leading independent hospitality guide and The Long Dock have consistently reached their exacting standards to receive the Independently Recommended award since 2007. This is what Georgina says about The Long Dock:
“Friendly staff are quick to take orders and make visitors feel welcome, and when the food arrives it just fits the bill – well cooked, hot and tasty, great seasonal local produce and nothing too fussy: what more could you want? They say on the menu ‘By the time you have finished your meal we hope you are planning your next visit’ and that’s far from fanciful – you may well be.”
