This place is in the middle of nowhere, but extremely handy if your playing Tralee golf course. It’s a family business, with the father in essence being front of house and the son working the kitchen. Our food was delicious and the breakfast was grand....Most of the bedrooms are of an average standard but definitely some are close to inhabitable, don’t get stuck with any of them. It’s very cheap and I would absolutely stay there againMore

Just home from the most amazing meal. There were 5 of us 3 adults a 4year old and 2 year old. Every single bite was eaten by all of us. The monkfish was amazing and the fillet steak superb. Desserts were gorgeous. Lovely staff who...were great with the kids. It was so nice we booked again for tomorrow night.More

Had a wonderful evening in the West End bar in Fenit. If like us you have a family member who has allergies, then this is the place for you! The chef came to our table to discuss our options and was so accommodating…we all enjoyed...a delicious meal, so fresh, with great service, highly recommend!!More

A party of 12 friends visited The West End last Wednesday evening. We were met and looked after very well by Brian the Chef/ Owner. Menus were provided and were loaded with a wide choice of Sea Food as well as the usual meat and...chicken dishes. All items were very reasonably priced particularly the hot or cold Sea Food platter @ €26.95. The waiting staff were all local and the service was excellent A return visit is definitely on the cardsMore

4 adults 3 kids and a 6 week old baby we waited half an hour for a table outdoors. We had been told earlier that it would be a long wait for a table and that was fine when we finally got a table we...were told we couldn't be served food because they were too busy. Very very disappointingMore

She who must be obeyed and I have eaten here a couple of times in the last few weeks. As always the food is fresh the service friendly. The sea breeze fills your lungs with the flavour of the sea and the food just fulfills...the expierance. As the food is whatever the fishermen land that day your menu is a hand written blackboard and not your typical typed menu. But hell that's what you come to a place like this for. Freshness Flavour And great valueMore

Disappointed by our meal last week. Feels more like fast food rather than a decent pub dining scene. Mussels were mediocre - small and a lot were not open. Fish/Chips: so so.. chips - felt reheated. Staff are nice but the food could do with...a major improvementMore

She who must be obeyed and I have tried to eat here for nearly 4 years now and something has always got in the way .either they were closed or we had to cancel at the last minute. However this time we made the reservation...for dinner and by 12am I even knew what I wanted for my dinner 😁 We were welcomed warmly with full covid 19 protocols and seated in a beautifully decorated dining room with a suttle sea side theme. My starter of muscles was devine and generous to a fault . And so so tasty .Her indoors had the crab salad which too was lovely and not overpowering. My main was the chef's hot seafood platter which had prawns ,sea bass, monkfish, salmon, scallops, muscles all in the most beautiful sauce. I actually asked Susan our server to ask the other guests to leave for 5 min so I could pick the plate. Manners out the window I didn't care 😳 I was so taken with the chowder I had it for desert much to the amusement of both our servers Susan and Caoimhe. My partner had sticky toffee pudding all washed down with a pot of tea and an Irish coffee. Our hosts were engaging and whitty. Service was faultless 3 courses with 3 rounds of drinks Tea coffee €88.00 Highly recommendedMore

Eating solo in this time of Covid is difficult: why take a table for 2 and cut their profit/revenue potential by half when restaurants are already struggling?? But I was solo so I booked the day before to gauge the “solo dining attitude” and to...confirm I could get a spot. SO glad I did! Susan, the waitress, was a joy. Welcoming, happy, pleasant and full of information, such as seafood provenance. Another diner reached out (not literally, you know, c-19 and all!) and suggested the scallops. So glad he did as the menu is extensive, and I’d overlooked them. I love scallops! I did get the Scallops Thermidor, and it was truly perfect. Rich, creamy, flavorful- but not just overly buttery like some places do. Perfect. Nice side salad, extra side order of garlic mash, a bit o wine, and I was set! Would definitely go back and try a few other goodies on the menu. Nice steak selection from the look of it! Thanks Susan, from this Susan. I’ll be back. ;-)More
