Restaurant & Bar

Our multiple award winning, head chef, Seamus Commons, offers mouth-watering menus that are available throughout the day and into the evening in La Fougére Restaurant or Brehon Bar at Knockranny House Hotel, Westport, Ireland. Since Mayo-born chef Seamus Commons came onto the cookery scene, he has been whisking critics and customers alike into a foodie frenzy.
Food writer John McKenna of the McKennas’ Guides, refers to Seamus as “one of the great contemporary Irish talents, and the good news is that he continues to innovate and continues to get better. The restaurant at Knockranny is an unmissable destination". We are proud to have one of the finest restaurants in Westport and the best Chefs in the country. 
Commons is renowned for his fanatical attention to detail and is truly passionate about using the highest quality ingredients in his cooking. Knockranny House Hotel prides itself on stocking the absolute best of what the local area has to offer, and so Seamus has found himself very much at home with this mutually shared ethos.
One highlight is the Irish dry-aged Black Angus beef, cooked to perfection on a Josper Basque charcoal grill enhancing the natural flavours and resulting in a great dining experience.
