My family dined in this restaurant for Sunday lunch and were very disappointed in the standard of food. The soup starter was gloopy and tasteless. The vegetarian started was not fresh and preheated. I chose hake as a main dish which was dry and chewy....More

Nice friendly staff food only average for the price had the spare ribs. Terrible bass music playing under the seats by the wall. Could feel the seats vibrating not at all conductive to a relaxing lunch

Good food but not much of a pub. After dinner finished the place emptied out and was very quiet considering it was a beautifully sunny Saturday. Good selection of craft beers.

We ate here on the first day of a 2week road trip, what a great start. The burgers were sublime with nice salad and home cooked chips. The kinnegar scraggy bay beer to accompany was just perfect. Friendly staff made the visit perfect

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.
