Review on McAlpin's Suir Inn
Owned and run by the McAlpin family since 1971, this 300-year-old black-and-white inn is kept in pristine condition and is a magnet for visitors. It stands by the estuary some seven miles from Waterford, opposite where the Suir and Barrow rivers meet. There's isn't much room inside, but crowds pack the place for great Irish hospitality, decent drink and honest home-cooked food at fair prices.
The cooking has come a long way since the McAlpins started selling fresh salmon rolls over the counter. These days, the menu encompasses everything from fillet of beef with black pepper and mushroom sauce to arguably 'the best Anglo-Indian curry in Ireland', although seafood is the main attraction. Expect mussels in garlic butter, baked crabmeat in fennel sauce, crab claws, splendid fish pies and mighty seafood platters. Everything comes with freshly baked brown soda bread, and it's worth leaving room for a piece of fruit pie or one of the homemade ice creams.
