Established for over 16 years, Eithna’s By The Sea Seafood Restaurant in Mullaghmore, Sligo, won the Georgina Campbell Ireland Guide and BIM 2014 award for its fresh seafood, shellfish and lobster dishes as well as Eithna's use of seaweed in both savoury and sweet dishes. Even though Eithna's speciality is seafood, she has plenty of other options for non fish eaters from meat to vegetarian dishes.
Her scrumptious homemade cakes served with lavazza coffee is a favourite in the mornings. Overlooking picturesque Mullaghmore harbour, County Sligo, on the Wild Atlantic Way, take a table outside when the sun is out and relax and enjoy watching the lobster fishing boats come and go from Donegal Bay and the tourists heading out to explore the monastic settlement at Inishmurray Island.
And not to be missed when the waves are right, Mullaghmore is increasingly becoming famous as one of the best spots in Europe for its biggest and best waves by the world’s top international surfers. Watch them arrive into Mullaghmore armed with boards and jetskis to catch the biggest and best waves. Professional surfer, Andrew Cotton, was recently nominated for a global surfing award for catching a 15.2m (50ft) wave just off Mullaghmore having hung about in Bundoran for 3 months looking for the right wave.
