Went into Bostons Bar for a family meal last weekend, we were served by a girl called Lucy or Louise, she told us but I can't remember. She went above and beyond for us. Our drinks never went dry, our kids were entertained constantly and...More

We stopped off for a late lunch here on Saturday. We both chose seafood dishes (lemon sole for me and scampi for her). Both dishes were really nice, my fish tasted really fresh, as you’d expect being next to the sea. Prices were reasonable and...More

Went for dinner with a group recently. My husband ordered steak which was overcooked and burnt and to be honest was not edible. Food was average and service was poor. Food was pricey and not good value. At no stage did any member of staff...More

The Boston Bar served a tasty fresh lemon sole with salad and chips at 9.15pm - unusual to have bar food served this late in Ireland.

Visited Boston's regularly during a week's holiday on Valentia Island - it was the place to go in Knights Town for some chat, craic, music and on one occasion some food. The Guinness and beer were good and served by really nice friendly staff. Customers...More

On a week-long holiday in Knightstown, Valentia, Boston's became our adopted local. It's a proper pub where you slowly get to know the staff and locals. Great choice of gin - more than I've seen in some so-called "high end" bars in Dublin - and...More

We had dinner on a Sunday night at this local pub at the recommendation of our B&B hostess. Although they were out of some menu choices, they were very friendly, and the service was fast! The food was good, and since there are no ATM's...More
