I ordered fried cod fish and fries with a Caesar salad. The salad came with chicken that was perfectly cut, cooked, and moist. Very good meal - I would highly recommend. We sat outside. They also have indoor seating

Our tour bus stopped here and we had a great lunch. One of their specialities is fish and chips and it tasted great. They have several desserts that are hard to decide between.

The seafood platter was wonderful. We enjoyed everything on it but the fish and chips and chowder were notable, probably the best we had in Ireland. The staff was great as well. We will definitely return here if we visit Dingle again.
