Fabulous, fresh, delicious seafood! Best mussels I’ve ever had. Bread, beverages, salads equally as good. Very friendly staff. Can’t go wrong here.

We have long enjoyed eating in Ashes. Over the years we have posted many favourable reviews and recommended it to others but after eating here recently we came away feeling that it no longer offered good value for money for lunch. I was thrilled to...see that they have their crab and prawn dumplings back on the menu. Three dumplings were served with a large mound of salad ( lettuce, cucumber, tomato and carrot) for 5c short of €20. Scallops came roasted and served around an identical mound of the same salad for €28.50. Whilst the dumplings were delicious the scallops were very bland and even at that price neither come with any carbs. The beef burger and fish and chips are very good and were much more keenly priced at €17.95 but €21.95 for mussels and chips??? I appreciate that restaurants are dealing with rapidly increasing costs but some tweaking of the menu is needed to make this pub attractive to us again. Reducing the amount of dumpling and serving them with a side of mash would improve the dish and potentially reduce the cost. The only side that could be ordered and at an additional cost , to make the scallops into our dinner was chips! I rest my case.More

I loved this restaurant. It was inviting and charming. Service and food were both excellent. Seafood was memorable and the sticky toffee was the best I have ever had. I ended up eating here three times in my short stay in Dingle. Thank you.

Can’t rave enough about our meal. Fresh crab app that was so fresh. Scallops and pork belly main along with a mushroom risotto that were so good, we’ll be thinking about them for years to come. Yum, yum, yum!

Excellent meal with great menu options. Staff were very friendly and informed. Our fish dishes just had that beautiful clean fresh feel with sauces that were Devine but not overpowering.

5 ⭐food and top class service. Booking at short notice but we were lucky they had some availability. 3 of us had 3 different seafood main courses. All were excellent. Thanks Ashes.

Food was 3.5 out of 5 - we had beef fillet, turbet and fish & chips. Its more of a pub than a restaurant feel. The reason we dropped another bit off the score was because we were rushed out at the end after 1...hour 45 mins, even though we explained our deserts were late arriving. It was the first time in many years I never left a tip, that says it all really.More

During a recent trip to Dingle, we booked a table for dinner recently in Ashes Restaurant. It has been so tough for establishments such as this throughout the Coronavirus pandemic and even to this date, there was only outside dining allowed. The first thing to...say is that the food was excellent, Ciara had Crab Dumplings and I had Gamba a pil pil to start. Ciara loved the dumplings and I thought the gamba was exactly as you would get in Spain. Turbot for me as a main courseMore

Myself and my partner went here in mid-September and took the early bird option. I had the Glenbeigh steamed mussels with red Thai chili paste, coconut and coriander cream broth and my partner had the seafood chowder (is there any other type?). My mussels were...simply divine - I like my chili dishes to be fairly robust and this really hit the spot - it was good and hot, the mussels were plentiful and IIRC, there was a bit of bread to soak up the delightful broth. I tasted my partner's chowder - thick, creamy and very full of good chunky fish pieces - I'm from a fishing town on the east coast and I consider that I make a mean chowder and this was among the best that I've ever tasted in a restaurant. We both had the "tempura of fresh local fish with home cut chips, salad and tartar" or as they called it in brackets "fish and chips" - I would add "posh" to that. Salad a lovely little complement to the dish with a nice dressing and the batter was perfect - very fine, thin and crispy. The fish was hake, of which I'm not a great fan - not too much taste in my opinion. If I were the owner/chef, I might consider offering a smoked fish as a possible alternative - for me, that would have been a clincher! Two small niggles - the waitress asked 5 (yes, five) times if we wanted anything to drink - once is normal, two is OK, three... hmm, but 4 & 5 were definitely a pain - if we'd wanted alcohol, we could have requested it! Also, the bill took some time in coming when we requested it, but compared to the lovely food, as I said, these niggles were minor. We didn't take dessert.More
