Reviewed 5 December 2020

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

Might look more like a pub than a restaurant from the outside but inside it has a beautiful ambiance in an old style setting. Food is excellent (particularly sea food). Staff very attentive and friendly. Like all good restaurants in Dingle, needs to be booked...to get a table.More

Thank you John. We do struggle with people's perception of us from the outside. We do look like a traditional pub. But as with life looks can be deceiving! We offer fine dinning in a homely, comfortable atmosphere. We pride ourselves on using 'Always Local,...More

Booked 3 of us in for dinner at Ashes, very easy booking! Very friendly servers as always. My sister and mother had the prawn pil-pil and I had the oysters to start, very tasty! Then onto mains, two John Dory’s and a steak. All perfectly...cooked, wonderful flavour and I must say the John Dory was the best fish dish I’ve ever had. Barely enough room left for desert but we went for it! The brownie was rich and perfect for chocoholics, the sticky toffee was moist and divine and I had the creme brûlée which was the perfect consistency and finished the meal beautifully. Ten out of ten for the food, service and atmosphere. Thank you to everyone at Ashe’s.More

Also the seafood chowder was the best we have had with to die for homemade brown / wheaten style...bread. Friendly , attentive service , good VFM; it was all goodMore

We stayed here and booked a table for dinner. Our initial impression during Covid 19 was that the place was spotless and carefully managed. The room was excellent and the food in the restaurant is really lovely. The service was efficient and friendly despite the...fact that they were very busy.More
