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.

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.

First time at Sophie’s and will be back, gorgeous restaurant and atmosphere for lunch. Service was great and food was lovely. Was celebrating a birthday and they wrote happy birthday on the dessert which was lovely. No rush on the table so could take our time and relax.

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
