Local delicacies and traditional dishes are highly recommended wherever you find them. Just because the COVID crisis has forced The Claddagh Inn to close our dinner menu doesn’t mean you’ll go hungry! Having “a good feed” be it “Jig’s Dinner” or “Fish n’ Brewis”, “Cod-Tongues” or “Figgy Duff, “Toutons” or “Peas Pudding” can be a memorable part of your NL adventure!

The Avalon Peninsula (outside of St. John’s) is sparsely populated and restaurants rely heavily on visitors. While the isolation is a key component of the rich culture often restaurants may only be operating during tourist season so we recommend that no matter where you plan to stay, research the dining options in that area.

The Claddagh Dining Room requests a 24-hour RSVP for menu selections in order to guarantee availability.

For convenience simply use the drop-down menu and special request block on our booking request form to reserve your menu selection while selecting your room!
