stopped here during our drive around the dingle peninsula. staff was very friendly and menu and food were quite good. would strongly also agree that the film on the fort is worth viewing (to at least warm up and dry off) before touring the fort.

Great stop for lunch. Take time to check out the small tourist building next door which has a short film about the stone fort across the street. Worthwhile to do before touring the fort. The Stonehouse Restaurant is full of atmosphere and has a delightful menu. The best restaurant on the Dingle loop drive.

It was out of season so fairly quiet. Clean and pleasant surroundings. Very attentive (in a nice way) staff. The food came out quickly and was delicious!

Just stopped for a cup of coffee with hubby, he had a scrumptious slice of chocolate cake. As a coeliac, I noticed they did do gluten free sandwiches! And had allergies marked on the menu. Didn't have any this time but will give again. Cosy place, even on a very dull October day.

Good food! Yes there are typically Irish dishes like lamb stew, but we were surprised by dishes such as amazing goat cheese and plums toasted to perfection on ciabatta bread served with a salad. A great place to stop on your tour of Dingle Peninsula!

While the Stonehouse is about the only option for eating while visiting the various nearby historical sites, we found the staff to be welcoming and on top of their game. It was a little chilly outside, so they made sure to seat my wife close to the fire, which she appreciated greatly. The menu has all the pub basics as... More

We were doing a tour by car around the Dingle Peninsula and came across this restaurant, a beautiful stone house with a cosy atmosphere inside. The food was very nice. The menu does not have may items but there is variety ranging from Irish lamb stew to Thai chicken curry. We had the cream of vegetables and it was very... More

Once you pass Slea Head, there's not much choice at all do this is a convenient place for say lunch. Everything seems to come with a salad of sorts and even a mash pie comes with chips too. The southern fried Chicken was just missing the basket and though plentiful, it was poor quality and virtually tasteless. Oddly, the portion... More

I had the opportunity to have a late lunch here the other day. Excellent is my first thought. Three of us had different items on the menu. Each dish was very tasty and very well presented. The salad with my sandwich was carefully crafted to give a nice presentation and several delicious flavors. I enjoyed it so much I went... More
