The Long Dock
Long before anyone ever 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 prettiest and 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 sea-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.
