We recently returned from a very comfortable stay at Lynch's on the Pier, which is in a fantastic location right on the Beara Peninsula. We have been to the area many times but this was our first stay in Castletownbere itself, which has a huge...working harbour & many options for water sports within easy reach of the town. Maria, the proprietor has a great team & the welcome, friendliness of staff & service was second to none. Maria herself could not do enough for us & she is so accommodating & welcoming. Our room was very comfortable & pristinely maintained daily. Breakfasts were really excellent, high quality, great choices & always very well presented. Portions are very good too & the lunch menu is vast & again, cooked to perfection, very reasonably priced & excellent options to choose from. Covid restrictions are followed perfectly & everything runs very smoothly. The location is ideal for touring West Cork & particularly the Beara Peninsula as the area has so much to offer. The islands of Beara & Dursey are not to be missed & the coastline all across Co Cork is wonderful as there's a different view at every turn. We were very pleased we booked our stay here & would highly recommend Lynch's on the Pier, at any time of the year!More

Staff friendly, had the seafood pie which comprised of some white fish, salmon and loads of diced vegetables, no shellfish. Tasted bland. My wife had the calamari again which lacked flavour. Not really value for money.

We called at lunch time without a booking and were told about 15 minutes for a table. When we got back we were seated and given a menu. We ordered, got our food and it was very good. Now the bad. At no stage were...we asked for contact details I offered when paying the bill but was told, no, your grand, come on, get with it. A lady went around to at least three other tables and sat to talk and no staff asked her to stay at her own table, they even joked at her being getting around today. To cap it all off, the table beside us became free, a waiter grabbed a cloth nearby and he wiped the table without disinfectant which by the way, was beside the cloth. This same man walked around with his mask under his chin instead of over his nose and mouth. In fairness any of the girls cleaning tables did use disinfectant. If we had known there was so little care been given to customer’s safety, we wouldn’t have gone in.More

Had a beautiful meal here yesterday sitting outside in the sunshine. Staff were friendly and very well informed on specials etc. I had brie for starters and lasagne for main, both gorgeous. My mother had smoked salmon to start and the special for main which...was lemon sole, all absolutely delicious. Well done and we'll definitely be back!More
