This was a spectacular meal. The seafood is freshly caught each day. The small, intimate dining room was inviting and the service was attentive. But the food was the star. Smoked salmon, fresh oysters, chowder....all wonderful.

The seafood is spectacular. Straight from the ocean, well-prepared and very very tasty. We had oysters, lobster and langoustines, all prepared to perfection. Had I not been so full after that I would have continued sampling other seafood as well. The ambience is rustic, down-to-earth and very friendly (as is the staff). It is simply a casual place for stellar... More

I cannot recommend this place any more! The best black sole I have ever had! The restaurant is small, but full of life. My father said he has never been to such a good restaurant in his entire life. Whenever we do come back to Ireland we will definitely be coming back. Thank you Out of the Blue

Simply the best meal I've ever had, ever. They were also so kind to provide a desert not on their menu for my wife's birthday. That was also the best cake ever, and they allowed us bring the plate away for a few days until we finished the cake. Can't wait to return, hopefully next summer.

My sister and I had dinner at Out of the Blue on our first night in Dingle and honestly, it spoiled the rest of our experiences thereafter. We indulged and had everything from oysters to squid to gorgeous pieces of fish. The chalkboard menu lists specials that are based off of what was freshly pulled from the sea that day.... More

Out of the Blue is an unassuming spot, but from several recommendations from fellow travelers, my friends and I made a reservation a couple weeks in advance which appeared to be a great idea as it's a pretty small space. The food was delicious, so fresh and tasty with what appears to be a revolving daily menu. It's a bit... More

We walked in cold at 7 pm on a Friday night to find them booked solid. We made reservations for the next night. What looks like a seaside, hole-in-the-wall eatery, opens up into a maritime themed small bar area and a separate dining room that is modern and beautifully decorated. The waitstaff is efficient and appropriately friendly. The menu is... More

This place blew my husband and I away. We were lucky to grab a table as a walk-in because it was the tail-end of the season (but it was still booked up, they squeezed us in between reservations). I cannot rave enough about the food. SO FRESH and many interesting/savory flavors. The sides were just as incredible as the main... More

Love this restaurant. In a town with so many good places, this remains our fave. Great fresh seafood menu, which changes by the day , based on what's caught that morning. Recommend reservations!
