Find out what Irish restaurants to try in Loughrea. Loughrea (/lɒxˈreɪ/ lokh-RAY; Irish: Baile Locha Riach, meaning "town of the grey/ speckled lake") is a town in County Galway, Ireland. The town lies to the north of a range of wooded hills, the Slieve Aughty Mountains, and the lake from which it takes its name. The town is also famous for its cathedral (see Loughrea Cathedral) which dominates the town's skyline. The town has increased in population in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Although the town also serves as a commuter town for the city of Galway, it retains its vibrancy as an independent market town.

Outside it says "traditional Irish food". This was my first visit to Sizzlers. I ordered vegetable spring rolls and the special - "Mixed Grill". The spring rolls were (obviously from frozen) tiny, very crispy and fried/grilled on one side. Very little inside the hard casing and the whole lot laced with cumin and covered in an ugly brown sauce.The Mixed Grill comprised the usual sausage, bit of bacon, pudding, bits of chicken, bit of steak and an egg. The entire collection was burned to a cinder/cremated and barely edible. Even the egg was as hard as a piece of rubber. Yet again the brown sauce and the whole meal smelling of an Asian concoction. I have eaten mixed grills for the past 50 years and this goes down as the worst ever! I like Asian food sometimes but did not expect it here where it says "Traditional Irish Food". The restaurant obviously can't decide if it is Asian or European/Irish.

Great home cooking at very reasonable costs.This place serves bar food at its best.Had a two course meal here with my wife and could not have enjoyed the food any more than eating in a quality hotel. The prices at this place for the quality and amount of food served is excellent.

Ate breakfast here last Saturday. Usual great welcome, service and food! Great operation, super staff and excellent freshly prepared, to order, food. Great atmosphere. Families having a weekend treat, breakfast out, fries, Cokes. Lovely to see. Practically everybody is a local. And still, visitors are made feel immediately welcome. One, small quibble, the till needs a full time attendant. Too slow.
