A Review: A Real Catch – Dublin’s Best Seafood Restaurants Will Reel You In

As an island nation, Ireland has access to some of the best seafood produce in the world. From oysters both native and gigas to freshly caught fish prepared right in front of you, Irish seafood is nearly impossible to beat.

Dublin is our capital city and as a result, it boasts a huge number of high quality seafood eateries. From city centre venues to the suburbs of Howth and Malahide, you’ll be spoiled for choice.

Below you’ll find a review of one of Dublin’s best seafood restaurants – The Oar House – they’re sure to reel you in!

The Oar House

Located in Howth, the award-winning family friendly Oar House has been a seafood haven for almost ten years. Popular with both locals and tourists, the Oar House is headed up by chef John Aungier and fishmonger Sean Doran. With their own trawler, “Celtic Fisher”, you can be assured that all produce is the freshest available. Their primary supplier, Dublin Bay Prawns, is a real family affair with Sean’s brother Padraig running the business. So sit back, relax and taste some of the dishes at the Oar House, including Cajun Style Calamari, Smoked Mackerel Pate, Baked Oysters, Crab Claws and of course, lightly battered Dublin Bay Prawns served with a homemade tartar sauce.
