Our favourite restaurants in Enniscrone
The first section of our guide to the best restaurants in Enniscrone tackles our favourite places to eat in Enniscrone.
These are pubs and restaurants that we (one of the Irish Road Trip team) have munched away in at some point over the years. Dive on in!
1. Gilroy’s Bar and Ait Eile Restaurant
Ait Eile is well-known for its locally sourced produce and fresh seafood, particularly it’s seafood linguine and crispy cod. The desert here is also the business (give the orange starfruit cheesecake if it’s on the menu).
The fact that you can nip into Gilroy’s pub after is the icing on the cake (Guinness fans – you’ll be glad to know that the pints here are creamy and perfectly poured). This is one of our favourite restaurants in Sligo for a reason.
2. The Pilot Bar
For a great gastropub on Main Street, the Pilot Bar boats great food and an infectious atmosphere that will keep you returning time and time again.
It serves up delicious pub grub, with popular options including seafood chowder, a variety of pizzas and ‘the usuals’, like burgers and classic fish and chips.
The bar also serves up a superb Guinness, so if you’re looking for a post-surf drink, the Pilot Bar is worth a look.
3. Spicy Affair Indian Restaurant
For some truly delicious Indian food, Spicy Affair never disappoints. The food on offer here is the finest South Asia has to offer.
If you’re not a fan of spicy food, don’t fret – the menu here has plenty of options to choose from with everything from Curries and Biryanis to juicy prawns, veggie dishes and much more on offer.
Located just off the main street, it’s a nice alternative to pub grub and you can even opt for take away if you fancy kicking back with a feed out by the sea.

3. The Ocean Bar
The reason this place is one of our favourites is actually nothing to do with the food, but it’s incredible beachfront location. Looking straight out onto Enniscrone Beach, it has an unbeatable view for a meal or a drink with friends.
That’s not to say that the food isn’t good, in fact, they serve up some very tasty dishes, with lunch and dinner available.
You can expect to find everything from roast pork and fresh seafood to delicious curries on the menu here. All of which is sourced from high quality local suppliers.
