Evening Dining

In the evening, families will dine in the very socially distanced Cara Suite. The owner and head chef of Cian’s on Bridge Street, Cian Hayes, will be opening a pop-up restaurant experience in Hotel Westport this summer: Cian’s at Hotel Westport. Bringing a unique take on the menu ordinarily served at his award-winning restaurant to Hotel Westport, the pop-up will take advantage of the large space available in the hotel so guests and locals alike can enjoy a remarkable dining experience in comfortable and socially distant surrounds.

Diners can expect to enjoy the best in locally sourced ingredients with bespoke dishes that are bursting with flavour and Cian promises to have some healthy and delicious choices for the kids too.
