I can’t review the food as we didn’t get to eat there. The young man who we spoke to about getting a table for lunch was rude, dismissive and clearly was unhappy in his job, it gave a very bad impression. We were prepared to...More

Didn't expect such a nice pub and restaurant at such a distant place. Had a couple of pints and a great lunch with my friends after a long walk on the Peninsula. The chowder is realy lovely!

This was such a quaint tiny Irish town--an interesting destination trip for me. The picnic tables, views of the water and friendly people were a real plus. I look forward to visiting again for a longer visit.

Had a lovely Sunday lunch here in August 2015 with family. Homely feel to the place. Great pint. Secluded / off the beaten path find. Highly recommend. [Not sure why this isn't listed under restaurants.]

We arrived unbooked and although they were busy and full they accommodated us outside. Superb fish meals were shared.. We couldn't decide who had made the better choice. Very friendly local staff were extremely helpful. We would thoroughly recommend.
