Magees Bistro
Magees is a well established casually styled restaurant just off the square in a little side street that reeks of history with the old gate and Mint right on its doorstep. The easy going decor does not detract however from the accomplished cooking on the plate which shows creativity, experience and confidence that only comes with time. It is only open for dinner and in fine weather simple lunchtime snacks and eating al fresco on the terrace are accommodated. The a la carte starters range from €7.00 to €9.00 like half a dozen escargots or a dill flavoured fish cake. Main courses can be a salmon and cod parcel at €17.00 or a simple fillet steak at €22.50. The bounty of local seafood are always a favourite and being displayed in a chilled cabinet you can literally choose your dish from looking at the catches of the day on show. This also translates into interesting blackboard specials, with 4 fish starters and 5 fish mains of the day! Desserts like a good creme brulee are €6.80. A glass of house white is €5.20. The service is local, young, friendly and professional. There are self-catering townhouse accommodations adjacent with prices from €550 per week to €700 during high season, sleeping up to six people
