The Lonely Poet

 Just outside the Ballyhackamore area, lies the Lonely Poet bar and restaurant. Firmly established as a local favourite, The Lonely Poet is a wee gem of a watering hole attracting a mixed bag of customers from all over the area. From the mature ladies who lunch to families with small children or regulars propping up the bar The Poet offers something for everyone.

 The food is exceptional with a cross between bistro dining and pub grub offering fresh, local food cooked to order- no reheated burgers here!! Despite The Lonely Poet’s upmarket appearance both inside and out it offers a warm friendly atmosphere and is decidedly down to earth- most of the customers (and it was busy at the time) seem to be on a first name basis with the staff.

The Poet also offers live music every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night as well as a pub quiz on a Thursday.  This combined with their fantastic food offer- any two courses from their bistro menu with a drink for £14 as well as kids eat free Monday to Thursday is sure to cement their position as the venue of choice for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks!


Great food, great atmosphere, great night!”
