Ashling on the Lough offers superb views of Southport Marina. Enjoy dishes such as the Molly Malone Mussels cooked in a white wine, tomato and leek cream sauce and served with brown bread; or the classic Shepherd’s Pie prepared with lamb, beef, cracked peppercorn gravy and topped with butter-whipped potatoes. Ashling’s has an extensive list of whiskeys, or if you’re heading over for weekend brunch, try one of the extravagant Bloody Marys—they’re so heavily adorned with cheese, meat, pickles and olives, they could be a small meal in themselves.

Dining at The Spot Drive-In is like paying a visit to 1950s America. Aside from its prices, the Spot’s menu hasn’t changed much over the years and still features indulgent favorites like onion rings, breaded cheese squares, steak sandwiches, chili dogs and banana splits. Just like in its early days, the Spot still makes its own root beer and orange soda.
