Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely delicious food served by an even more delicious family. I came here with a large group and we all loved our meals and chatting with the owners. I would recommend to anyone in the area! Definitely worth the visit.

Am up in Killybegs for a few days to visit friends. Killybegs is a marvellous town to visit especially if you are into a warm welcome and fine fish. I had an early dinner in the Boathouse restaurant and even though I have been here...before on this occasion it surpassed it's previous high rating. The star of the show is fish served simply but beautifully cooked and presented. The special tonight was black sole, a notoriously difficult dish to find on any menu. It was landed in the harbour this morning. The whole fish was served simply and impeccably cooked. This chef knows what he is doing. If you want a Michelin star experience at regular pricing, don't miss Anderson's Boathouse Restaurant in Killybegs.More

I dined at this restaurant while part of a group tour, and while I was not quite certain at first, I found that I had visited perhaps the best seafood restaurant in all of Ireland. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, especially for such...a large party, and the atmosphere was truly something incredible. There was a great view of the harbor in Killybegs, and one could see the sun set throughout the meal. The food was, however, nothing short of phenomenal. The collection of seafood dishes were well-cooked and fresh, as if they were straight from the ocean that day. Each dish was prepared and served properly, and each dish was incredibly delicious. Anderson's Boathouse is well worth a visit and I will gladly visit again should I have the chance to do so.More

I was away for a couple.of days with my wife and we decided to go to Andersons boathouse based on the amazing reviews. We were not disappointed from the moment we walked through the door to we left. The hospitality, service and location are amazing...and that's before you even taste the food. I can only describe our experience as a culinary masterpiece. I can't fault anything and I most definitely will be back as Andersons boathouse has just bacame my favourite place to eat.More

I have never know a restaurant before that actually gets better every time we visit. We live in a city surrounded by restaurants and few come up to the standards of Andersons. A lovely chill venue with views over the harbour and welcoming, friendly, kind...staff. A must go place.More

Just Excellent, that’s the only way I could describe the meal we just had. Starters, mains and coffee. Bottle of wine for just over €100 but the food was exceptional. The smell of the sea and the atmosphere were amazing. Staff so friendly. Definitely worth...a visit if you are in Killybegs.More

Such a wonderful evening we enjoyed at Anderson’s Boathouse. The food was delicious! The service was excellent! I was there with my husband, adult children and our 7 month grandson and we could not have felt more welcomed. My daughter in law was naturally nervous...about bringing the baby but the baby must have sensed the welcoming, hospitable atmosphere and the meal went off without a hitch. We also felt comfortable asking for wine and food recommendations and the food arrived hot and delicious! For a fine dining experience, I would not hesitate recommending Anderson Boathouse.More
