At The Salty Dog we believe that our great local produce gives a unique twist to some of the world’s classic bistro and pub dishes. We pride ourselves on using Irish ingredients to create traditional dishes with a difference. From breakfasts & bar snacks, to classic pub and restaurant dishes we work with local producers to bring the best of Ireland to the plate.

The Restaurant & Bar at The Salty Dog

The restaurant at The Salty Dog Hotel & Bistro runs the whole of the ground floor across 3 different rooms which used to be he reception rooms of the old Victorian town houses.  The lounge area to the right as you come in is where we welcome dogs to join their owners, whether just enjoying a drink, a coffee or tea, or a full meal. If you want to book with your dog make sure you specify a bar table when booking.

We are well known for our use of local produce and as champions of the local beer and spirits producers.  As a hotel we are open and serving food from 7:00am to 10:00pm most days … so there is always a reason to pop in!
