About Us

Barrtrá Seafood Restaurant was established in 1988 by Paul and Theresa O'Brien.

From the beginning, they were determined to use only the highest quality products and ingredients to deliver top notch food.

This tradition is continued today by their son, Ruben. As head chef he ensures only the best local seafood is served at the restaurant. The steaks come exclusively from Irish cattle, globally recognised as some of the best beef in the world. And just outside, the well-tended garden provides vegetables for the kitchen.

The Surprise Menu

Diners with a taste for adventure should take note of Barrtrá’s innovative Surprise Menu.

Each evening, Ruben selects the choicest catches and cuts and crafts a unique five course meal around them. Visitors choose either a fish, meat or vegetarian option, sure in the knowledge that, whichever their choice, the result will impress. For drinks, an extensive wine menu has been carefully selected to compliment the food.

The Barrtrá Experience

At Barrtrá, while cuisine is king, the importance of setting is not overlooked.

The staff take pride in fostering a homely atmosphere. The cosy and warm dining area has been recently renovated and boasts magnificant views across Liscannor Bay. Watching the sun sink below the waves while dining on the tastiest fresh seafood or a succulent steak makes a visit to Barrtrá Seasfood Restaurant an essential dining experience.
