Arriving into Mullaghmore, a charming coastal village, a signature destination point on the Wild Atlantic Way, you cannot fail to see Eithna’s by the Sea building with its dramatically painted sea mural of Mullaghmore above and below the sea, an impressive village landmark. Eithna’s by the Sea is proud to share delicious bounty from above and beneath the waves. From the shoreline to the shore, you will find the very best fish, shellfish and seaweeds, accompanied by locally grown organic vegetables. Eithna enthusiastically creates tasty nutritious dishes using only the finest raw ingredients at their seasonal best.
Try her most tempting seafood platter, which will keep you cracking – break through the mountains of crab claws in the shell, fresh Donegal Bay Prawns in season and the succulent flavours of just cooked lobsters and you are hooked.
Beef and lamb are raised on local pastures with their own distinctive flavours from the mix of wild herbs and grasses that abound close to the shore. Eithna can also provide variations of wholesome vegetarian dishes effortlessly as an addition to her daily menu.
Step into the restaurant and history reminds you of Mullaghmore bygone days with walls decked with photographs of past local customs and characters that once were part of the way of life of this fishing village.
Others choose to take in the sea-air with a stroll along the harbour, watching the activity of fishing boats and yachts gracefully weaving along the horizon.
Venture down onto the beach when the tide rolls out and admire an amazing garden of seaweed or find yourself wandering along the grassy trails behind the dunes and delight in a paradise of unexpected orchids and a profusion of wildflowers..
