Had a hamburger. The first hamburger I have had in Ireland so I did not have anything to compare it to. It was good, not great. Service was good.

Let down by the initial greeting but things went a whole lot better when we eventually got to our table 30 mins after getting into the place despite 2-4 tables empty, food and everything else was fab after this

Great bar with good selection of craft beer. Food was good but service was poor- we were left waiting for food for over an hour.

Visited the Draft House last week. What a lovely surprise! Excellent food. Large portions, but not huge. Very friendly staff. Good atmosphere. Patrons were from young children to pensioners, so caters for all ages.

Quirky and engaging, The Draft House gastropub is a perfect fit for pretty Strandhill village on the Wild Atlantic Way. At The Draft House, “We don’t do ordinary” - we’ve reinvented the rulebook when it comes to eating out in the northwest. Talented head chef Lee Mastin seeks out the freshest and best local produce, transforming it into delicious, seasonally led lunch and dinner menus. Presentation and prices are equally attractive. Add in an extensive range of Irish craft beers and it’s easy to see why The Draft House is so popular with both locals and visitors. The decor on both floors is eclectic and appealing as well as comfortable. Regular live acoustic music adds to the welcoming atmosphere and the service is both efficient and relaxed. Original touches include showers for hungry surfers and warm kennels for the dog walker’s best friend. The Draft House has won the Bord Bia ‘Just Ask’ award and Best Casual Dining Experience at the Gold Medal Awards.
