The early bird menu is fantastic value and even if you do not eat fish or pork belly - they will make sure that you have a great meal. The fish & chip are always fluffy and crisp while the seafood pie is hot and very tasty. Then there were the soups - outstanding is the only word. The owner... More

My nephew and I were travelling along the Ring of Kerry and came across this gem of a restaurant...we had the most amazing seafood chowder and calamari. One of best meals of our Ireland trip. Thank you!

We've travelled back home to Ireland from Sydney Australia for the Christmas holidays and booked three days in Kerry. I was told by too many people to count make sure you stop by QC's for an open crab sandwich and crab claws when driving the ring of Kerry. Despite the bad weather we made it to Cahersiveen and found QC's... More

Walking the Kerry Way we had an overnight stay in Cahersiveen and were recommended QCs. It was crowded on the evening we were there but they found us a table after 15 minutes. Very good food and a buzzing atmosphere. The fish two of us had, was particularly good.

Very good seafood experience - Calamari starter followed by Hake Risotto and Fish 'n Chips with a very nice Albariño. At the top end of the price range for this type of food and location at €84.00, but very enjoyable.
