Had heard great things about this place but did not live up to expectations. Food was poor quality overall. Meat was overcooked and very fatty with lumpy mashed potatoes. Sea food chowder was tasty though. Service was friendly. Overall the food was a disappointment.

Seafood chowder is unmatched in Ireland, and i would believe this establishment is the gold medal winner, and for €10 you really feel like you've won a prize for being there. The seafood pie was a suprise with an heirloom recipe of mini shell fish,...salmon and trout being woven into the blissful spoonfuls. Irish soil raised cream and herbs must be the secret as these recipes cant be recreated abroad.More

Went with my family while vacationing around the west coast. We found it excellent, staff were very friendly, food was amazing, the kids menu was great, a real family spot. It was quiet busy in the evening but the food came out fast none the...less. 💯 Will return, highlights of our meal were the chowder and beef and Guinness casserole.More
