The menu offered hot and cold options and the quality of our cod & chips and scampi (prawns) in breadcrumbs was... More

We stopped here for lunch and the amazing view of the beautiful bay and islands, including Skellig Michael. The staff were so friendly and welcoming, the tables outside in the sunshine were comfortable, and topping it off, the hamburger we ordered was the best one we've ever had in our entire lives. Listed as just a normal burger on the... More

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.
