    Kealy’s Seafood Bar is right at the harbour in the fishing town of Greencastle, so you'll find glistening fresh seafood taking star billing on its menu. Grilled plaice, lemon sole, John Dory and poached hake with saffron sauce anyone?

    As a family-run establishment, the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming, with the Kealy family using seafood and shellfish hauled in from the fishing boats. Like the tides, the menu changes as seasons come and go, with dishes accompanied by locally sourced Irish food.
