Lunch At Morans At The Weir



You’d have to be a very dippy travel writer to have lunch at a great little restaurant and completely forget to take a single photo of the excellent seafood served. Very dippy. So I guess I am. Or maybe it was because when we detoured to stop at Morans At The Weir in Kilcolgan on our way from Galway to Doolin, one of my children was throwing a champion wobbler and I was utterly distracted.


That glass of wine I’m raising? Imbibed sincerely in order to maintain my sanity. Honestly.


Thankfully at Morans, there’s ample space for cantankerous children to run around and stretch their legs and generally jiggle out all their disagreeableness so that when you get back in the car you wonder if you’ve actually got a new child in your car.


So yes, I forgot to take any photo of the food, but it was excellent. In fact, my brother-in-law, Dan, who was with us, exclaimed that the Fish Chowder he had for lunch might possibly be the best chowder he’d ever tasted. Personally, I was more than happy with my open-faced Salmon sandwich.

I’m including this set of photos for today’s Wanderfood Wednesday because if you’re in the area, Morans is well worth the effort to find. And if you, like us, are blessed with good weather during your visit you can sit outside, enjoy the scenery and, for an extra-special treat, marvel at the artistry in the thatch roofs of the cottages as you enjoy your lunch.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!
