Stopped in here on the advice of a friend. Decided on the pan-fried salmon. Wow. Just wow. Best salmon I've had in years, easily. Left my compliments to the chef. I'll be calling back again next time I'm in Dingle.

Opposite the Tourist office, you can park in the marina and down a short little alley. This place is , if a little spare looking, clean and you can look right into the kitchen where it all happens. We arrived at 6:55 on a Wednesday night and were the only people in the joint. By 7:05 patrons started streaming in... More

We really enjoyed Sheehy's anchor down, my wife and I were looking for local seafood in Dingle and found it here! The son and daughter were waiting tables and the father was in the kitchen. In conversing with our server Colin Sheehy he gave us some of the history of his fisherman family and let us know they also own... More

Great fish! Super fresh, right off the boat! This place was recommended by a local! My husband had the fried fish, I had the special that was recommended, we also had the local beer from the Dingle brewery! Highly recommend!

This was one of our favorite meals in Ireland. The seafood is so fresh here that they don't even have a freezer. My spouse loved his fish and chips, and said it might have been the best he's ever had. Sheehy's was also able to easily accommodate my gluten-free and dairy-free medical dietary restrictions. The portions were generous and the... More

We ate lunch and dinner there over several days during a business trip. The service was prompt and efficient and the food was well-prepared and delicious. The setting was informal but neat and a great value for the money in Dingle.

On the advice of our B&B host we drove into town to eat dinner at Anchor Down. The place was very busy and we were asked if we minded sharing a table with 2 others. It was not a problem as we would have waited for some time before other diners finished. The staff were efficient and our drinks and... More
