This is a must see stop on your way to Dingle. Stop by and say Hi to Liz. It is a quaint place to have a pint and a bite to eat. If you are looking for a place to stay, you can't find a better B&B. It is family friendly as well as a romantic spot. Every time I...

We were staying at a cottage down the road and this place looked like a good spot to have dinner and drinks. It was off season so it was quiet and Joe the bartender was very nice. Our dinner came out quickly and was very good. When we were done, Joe refused to let us leave him a tip. We...

We stayed there for two nights and loved it. Liz is a gem, very kind, always up for a nice chat and some craic. The food we had was fantastic and the bar itself is just grand. Definitely worth a visit!

Came in to have a quick pint and met the charming bartender , told us about how they have rooms for rent above the bar if at any time we needed a stay. Heard good things about the food and will come back for dinner!

Twelve of us arrived without notice and we were treated to lovely food, without delay. We all enjoyed it so much that we went back the second night, we were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and made us feel at home. Highly recommended.

Arrived late on the evening hoping for an evening meal, we recieved a warm welcome, live music playing and good atmosphere, food came quickly and was delicious. The stuffed lamb served with mash and veg was perfection, the mash potato was a delight, loved every mouthful. Highly recommended.

The food was fantastic and very fresh. I had the best lamb I've ever had anywhere and the portions were huge. Everybody loved their meals. Our waitress, Liz, was great as was Joe at the bar. While this place is sort of in the middle of nowhere it's got really, really good food.
