Shellfish plate of crustacean seafood with fresh lobster, mussels, oysters as an ocean gourmet dinner background

Welcome to our tradition
of great taste

The warmth of a rich and creamy chowder with hearty treacle bread, after a drive through the Burren. Or the delicate combination of wild smoked salmon with a glass of ‘the Black Stuff’ as the sun slowly sets over the harbour. These are tastes that define the spirit of Ireland – tastes that have made Monks of Ballyvaughan famous as the Galway Bay home of seafood for more than 20 years.

At Monks we have a special love for the sea and you can taste it in every delicious mouthful of our authentic, traditional food – lovingly prepared with only the freshest and finest, locally-produced ingredients. And it’s all paired with the picture-postcard prettiness, harbour charm and welcoming country comfort that is the beautiful old fishing port of Ballyvaughan – pearl of the Burren.
