The Creel enjoys a landmark position at the start of Quay Streetscape.

A friendly welcome awaits you upon entering and the look and feel of The Creel is all about enjoying a relaxed and casual dining experience centred around good food. Diners will also be treated to amazing views across Clew Bay and the waterfront park. There is a large indoor seated area and a very attractive covered outdoor dining space provided by an outdoor terrace to the front of the Café.
Visitors can also order a takeaway and hire a mobile picnic table and set it out on the waterfront park to enjoy an alfresco picnic. The Café is adjacent to the entrance to Westport House which is a popular visitor destination for families visiting Westport.
Open 7 days a week from 9 am – 5 pm, The Creel provides a daytime dining offering covering breakfast, brunch and lunch along with tasty freshly baked treats and coffees throughout the day if you feel like nabbing a quick snack.

For something sweet and decadent, you can’t go wrong with a pancake stack, served up with berry compote, maple syrup, and the choice of adding some crispy bacon. Yum!
You’ll also find a wonderful selection of freshly made sandwiches created with delicious sourdough and baguettes. For something light, you’ll have a choice of some tasty salads that you can enjoy on the go.
