We had an early evening meal for 2 adults and 1 child, and it was our second time dining at the Red Bank, while on holiday. Our meal was absolutely gorgeous from start to finish. Our fussy 5 year old loved his sweet potato and coconut soup, I found my goats hey starter and cod main course to be just perfect, and my (usually) carnivorous husband chose and adored a vegetable curry. I finished me meal with a beautiful gin creme brûlée with lemon shortcake… it was yum! We will definitely be back! Oh, and the wine list is fab too.

About the restaurant
Whether it is for food, drinks or a good night's sleep, the Driftwood is a place for you to come and unwind in a fun & relaxed, family friendly environment!

The bar & cafe area is the perfect place for some light food or to relax and have a drink, with gorgeous views over Sligo Bay & Oyster Island. Paudie's pitmaster background has played a big influence on The Driftwood Smokehouse Restaurant, with smoked meats and seafood playing a central part of the menu, which have been slow cooked in the smoker for up to 15 hours, to give a gorgeous flavour & tender texture.

Afternoon Tea

About the restaurant
The long established tradition of Afternoon Tea has been wonderfully preserved at Ashford Castle since 1868 - you’ll notice the original silver tea set displayed in the Connaught Room, which was presented to Lord and Lady Ardilaun to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary in 1896. With spectacular views from the comfort of the castle’s elegant interior, take your time to savour every delicious moment.

The Afternoon Tea menu offers guests a wide selection of speciality teas or perhaps a glass of Champagne, delicate finger sandwiches, warm freshly baked scones with lashings of cream and home-made jam, not to mention our tasty pastries. It’s the perfect way to spend a leisurely afternoon with friends.

Please note that all visitors will be directed to our car park located across the bridge and a shuttle will be provided. Should there be any delays please call the hotel.

Food was awesome, drinks even better drinks! The Burbon drinks were spot on. We had the seafood trio and the lamb. Both were awesome. The service was personable and quick. Great night out!

We are travellers from Toronto, Canada and found this restaurant highly recommended by vegan travellers. This is a must for all travellers who desire authentic Chinese food with excellent service. The food was super tasty and the fact that it also offers a vegan menu is a huge plus for us. We had biang biang noodles with tofu and the sizzling vegan duck. We would come back to Galway just to dine at this restaurant! But make sure to make a reservation.

Had booked ahead as my daughter loves chicken wings and hadn't been to Elephant and castle before, she is still talking about them. Portions are massive though would definitely suggest sharing a bowl. My husband had the burger which he said was delicious. Our waitress was so lovely and very helpful and efficient. The decor is really cool, chairs very comfy. A very enjoyable experience

The Perfect Summer Setting for lunch and dinner, with a beautiful terrace.

This traditional thatched cottage provides a relaxed dining experience with international dishes inspired by our owner Beatrice Tollman, with an emphasis on using the best of local ingredients.

It is just a short stroll over the bridge from the castle, offering views over to Ashford Castle.

Super lunch experience on way home from family trip in the west. Lovely cottage and style. Menu and food excellent.. Of note that we loved -Smoked salmon on Guinness bread, Fish & chips (haddock on the day) Lobster brioche (an expensive product sourced fresh and to work with so don’t expect a big portion - but it perfectly cooked and served!) Classic dishes with contemporary flavours. Good wines by the glass esp. the oaked Chardonnay!. Lovely staff. Bathrooms gorgeous. A little quiet in the restaurant (few tables eating outside though) but I’d say a buzzy spot in the evening. Didn’t get to try the cocktails but they looked super.
