There is nothing quite as special as a cosy, traditional Irish bar, steeped in history and local culture. Enjoy the perfect pint around the hearth of the log burning fire at Johnny Burkes, which offers a warm atmosphere where visitors can enjoy live music most nights in high season and often some impromptu sessions during the Winter. After all, the Armada Hotel in West Clare is at the heart of traditional music, hosting the Armada Set Dancing Week annually, as part of the legendary Willie Clancy Summer School.
Johnny Burkes is the place to get a true feel for the magic that is West Clare with keepsakes from history adorning the walls, and a truly local atmosphere.
A Bar food menu is available each day from 2.30 pm, and from 4.30pm on Sundays featuring delicious dishes such as Johnny Burkes Seafood Chowder with Atlantic Seafood to our comforting Bacon and Cabbage. Armada Weekend Brunch is served every weekend, from 11am to 2pm on Saturdays and 11am to 4pm on Sundays and feature tasty dishes ike Eggs Benedict, the Bap and of course of traditional fish and chips, a firm favourite in Johnny Burkes Bar.
And of course, no bar would be complete without a range of exciting whiskies and craft beers, including our own unique blend - the Dooliner Beer. We hope you enjoy the warm welcome in Johnny Burkes and the unique West Clare food experience it offers using all the great ingredients County Clare has to offer.
