POTA is an award winning café in the heart of the Conamara Gaeltacht.
“If ever you were looking for the perfect Irish cafe, this is it” 8.5/10, Corinna Hardgrave, Irish Times, June 2022
The café focuses on local, seasonal ingredients to provide a fresh and interesting menu. With fresh seafood from the Aran Islands and Ros an Mhíl Harbour, locally grown organic veg from An Garraí Glas and Beechlawn Organic Farm and a host of other local suppliers chef and owner Diarmuid Ó Mathúna’s menu has something for everyone. Don’t let the thatch roof fool you, this place is no tourist trap and is a great place to hear and speak the native language in a modern setting.
