What a great little restaurant. We had brunch. Eggs Benedict and made with great Gubeen bacon. Well put together, thoroughly enjoyed it. Some many places get this dish wrong, not here though. Great coffee with a delish scone as well. Reasonably priced, lovely staff, recommended.

My other half had the full irish and it looked filling. Good portions. Really nice place to stop for food bit on the small... More

My wife had the cajun chicken 🍔 and chips and I had ham salad sandwiches and vegetable soup.The chicken 🍔 was delicious and the ham in my sandwiches was proper home cooked ham along with great home made soup....

Just back from our first visit to An Chistin Beag and it certainly won't be our last. Best Eggs Benedict I've ever tasted and the Full Irish was excellent too. Lovely staff, great service and looking forward to our next visit very soon.

Starters and main courses were excellent - just about had room for a shared dessert which was also excellent. Food is freshly prepared and is well worth waiting for although we didn't think it was much of a wait but some impatient people may think so! We just soaked up the atmosphere. Restaurant is quite small so make sure you... More

The Eggs Florentine and Eggs Benedict here are absolutely gorgeous. An Chistin Beag is our Saturday treat for breakfast. We're creatures of habit and rarely vere away from eggs for breakfast, but we've also eaten from the dinner menu here and have really enjoyed it. It's advisable to book as the place gets very busy. Staff are very pleasant and... More
