2019 is shaping up to be a great year for the wonderful Leitrim food scene!
The Oarsman is one of the best 100 places to eat in Ireland, as decided by The Irish Times. The guide to the best foodie destinations across Ireland includes the local gastropub amongst the most “Family Friendly” places to eat in the country. Its lively and inviting atmosphere was perfectly captured in the prestigious guide:
“It’s a happy marriage when a venerable old pub meets a commitment to putting the best local food on to plates. They’ve kept the best of what’s old in this place, such as the mahogany signage for “Tackle, Waders, Fishing Rods”. And they’ve added progressive ideas about the food, all in a relaxed friendly pub.”
Whether you step in for lunch, dinner or for some nibbles to enjoy with a drink, you’re sure to have your expectations exceeded. The extensive menu has something for every taste, but expect to be impressed when the dish arrives. To make the experience complete, the talented resident guitar player will add another layer of loveliness to your visit.
The Oarsman is full of old world pub charm. It has a tradition spanning almost 250 years in the heart of Carrick on Shannon. Established in 1781, it is a gathering place that celebrates the best of Leitrim.
