The Burren Smokehouse: "Not quite a restaurant, but ..." Ireland Restaurant Tip by CCW

Ireland Restaurants: 181 reviews and 180 photos

This isn't a restaurant, but they make THE best smoked salmon (and other fish) in the known universe. Trust me. I've even ordered it shipped from Ireland to my home in the U.S.! (The shipping to the U.S. costs more than the fish, but you'll pay more than that for a comparable domestic product. The price I list below is per serving.)

Favorite Dish: I always order the Salmon of Knowledge, which lives up to its name -- but I was at their shop and tasted what they had on offer that day, and everything was wonderful.
