We had a fantastic evening on a sunny table looking out to the Kenmare estuary for our wedding anniversary. The service, food and location are unbeatable. Great cocktails and friendly staff. We’ll be back again for sure!

Established in 1984 by the O'Carroll family, O'Carroll's Cove is the only Beach Side Restaurant & Bar in Ireland. Located mid way between the villages of Caherdaniel and Castlecove, on the busiest tourist route in Ireland, the "Ring of Kerry" and Wild Atlantic Way, O'Carroll's Cove is located on a beautiful sandy beach, with breathtaking views of Kenmare Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The Cove is famous for its turquoise waters, gulf stream, white sandy beaches and the abundance of dolphins, seals and other sea life. O'Carroll's Cove is well known for its juicy steaks, locally sourced fish and seafood - all 100% Irish. The menu offers a variety of food for all tastes and many dishes are gluten free. We also pride ourselves in having the only home made stone baked pizzas on the Ring of Kerry! The Cove offers a unique dining experience with comfortable seating inside. We also have outdoor seating on our extensive sheltered decking areas, with panoramic views of Kenmare Bay. The Coffee Dock at The Cove offers homemade scones, cakes, whipped ice cream cones and slushies with a variety of flavours available. All food is available for take away. With full bar and restaurant service, at O'Carroll's Cove you will feel welcome everytime. Cead Mile Failte!
