Canine fine dining in the heart of Westport.
“Everyone thinks they have the best dog. And none of them are wrong.”
When Tom and Benbo adopted each other from a pet rescue farm in 2007, it was the start of many thrilling adventures together, creating happy memories that stand the test of time. From kayaking along meandering rivers to trekking in slashing rain, from sub-zero blizzards to insane downhill mountain bike runs, and many a full day out in the rolling countryside. These two were inseparable and the pair of them would invariably find a nice country pub to enjoy a pint of real ale and dry off by the fire, sometimes though, one of the things that might not be available for Benbo, was nice healthy snacks or hot food. Benbo mainly had to resort to stealing Tom's sandwiches or his freshly bought fish, a special treat (for Ben, not Tom - after discovering his evening meal was now inside his dog's belly!). Anyhow, this spurred Tom to design perhaps Ireland's first dedicated canine menu back in 2015. A menu that doggy owners could bring their pooch partners to, and enjoy some 'Thought for Paws'. We're launching it fully this year, so bring over your furry friends and let them know how much they are loved.
Thought for Paws is a service that I have gratitude in offering to you, in honour of the life and dear memories of my friend and teacher, Benbo my Border Collie. A gentle, playful soul that I will remember always, and still a faithful guide to this day. Thanks for sharing your time with me Ben x
