I visit Spillane's regularly during holidays and it has been invariantly excellent, food wise and service wise. So no less than a four-star, despite a recent a experience which I hope you can fix. I had the shepherd's pie and it was incredibly bland. No...More

Guinness and beer is very good and the menu is surprisingly comprehensive for a bar type restaurant. We loved the crab claws and the other seafood choices looked really good. They do a seafood platter, when it's on you have to try it. Had a...More

Food is ok, service is very bad. Staff made us feel very unwelcome, seemed to want the table back asap and were very rude about it when we had just started our meal. Overpriced and don't appreciate or even want custom.More

Spillane's Bar is a good pub. We had an enjoyable evening that we remembered more for the beer on tap and the sunset views than the food. A lot of the menu is deep fried and overall I would consider the meal average and a...More

A bar/restaurant off the main road along the Maharees. Nice food and staff. Good atmosphere. Good for GAA matches and across from the beach.
