Absolutely ideal. We did the ballincollig loop walk today. We wanted a nice lunch after the walk. We called into 2 other restaurants that we found were either not child friendly or too upmarket.

Great for food or just going for a pint!!! We went for a quick bit to eat on a Friday and we're lucky to get a seat. The food and beer is of a good standard, the staff are always pleasant to deal with, probably the best of Ballincollig😊. They also have a great selection of music acts visiting on... More
