For something special enter our amazing Erriseask dining lounge, complete with cocktail bar emanating New England style and ambience. Executive Chef Stefan Matz and Head Chef Sinead Quinn conjure up "A Taste of Connemara" with local fish and meats. A theatre style kitchen allows guests to watch an extremely accomplished team prepare their food and create a truly magical experience.
Children are welcome in to the restaurant but there is no dedicated children's menu. Children 12 and under are half price for the same adult menu.
Please note that in the event that there are 2 menus choices on offer (tasting and Table d'hote) we ask that the whole table avails of one menu choice.
Delicious food and great atmosphere. The live music was a bonus. Excellent service. Everyone in group was delighted with everything. So so tasty. Thank you
My parents and I had a great time and absolutely enjoyed the food.
The best of produce from Connemara's larder of land and sea, cooked in their open kitchen restaurant - each plate of food was fantastic. I had just returned from Cannes where I dined in a 2* Michelin Rest. Stefan and Sinead's food surpassed it! Can't wait to dine there again soon.
Our evening meal in the Erriseak restaurant was presented lovely, one could taste the fresh produce and nice to see the chefs at work preparing the food even for a vegetarian (no meat or fish). I was looking forward to tasting Stefan Matz cuisine as I had the pleasure of sampling his cusine previously in a different establishment & had completed a Christmas food demonstration with him. I was not disappointed again. My partner thoroughly enjoyed his lamb and scallops. I only hope when I return that I can try different vegetarian dishes. Thank you.
My mother said it was honestly one of the best meals she's had in her life and I can't disagree with her. Decent portions that made you feel satisfied rather than sickeningly full, with beautiful, fresh and exciting flavours. Wonderful work :)
Fabulous food, amazing setting in the middle of Connemara, friendly and helpful staff. Simply perfect!
We had a delicious meal watching the sunset. Lovely menu using local produce. Michelin star standards in my opinion. We will be back.
Beef presentation a great idea, helping to promote a better understanding of quality Irish produce. Congrats to Dean, Stefan, Sinéad, James & Co. Very happy to recommend Erriseask to family, friends & visitors.
Wine expensive, my prosecco was flat. Poor service when we arrived we were more or less ignored for 20 minutes. Food was outstanding. Would have helped to have staff in some sort of uniform as this would have helped us at the start. Tasting menu was for whole table which was not explained before we ordered our foid
This was our best food experience this year.We are proud that one can have such, west of the Shannon. No apologies for giving the entire experience five for everything. On the night it was not just faultless, it was superb. It is almost impossible to get that balance there of formality and informality. It will be our yardstick for some time to come. Thank you to the Galway team..
The Erriseask restaurant and indeed the whole Connemara Sands hotel is 1st. class. The food in the restaurant and also in the bar is excellent as is the service throughout the hotel. We really enjoyed it and will recomend it to anyone who will listen to us.

Excellent food, wonderful.resturant, super location. Thanks to all the team for such a lovely experience.
Thank you for the best dining experience in the West of Ireland in over 50 years. The menu choices were excellent and the food was cooked to perfection. Looking forward to treating ourselves again in the future 😊
We had an amazing stay. It's a lovely hotel in a great location. The staff across the hotel couldn't do enough to make our stay memorable. Our meal on the Saturday night was incredibly tasty, such a treat and we followed it up with some beers, gin and cocktails in your relaxing bar!
