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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Nice beach but gets way too much hype for what it is. There's better near by. The restaurant there has good grub and friendly staff.

Great location overlooking a gorgeous small cove. We had stopped for drinks one day and decided to return for dinner. Our booking was very courteously fit in last minute and our large party was made feel very welcome. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food and the...service was excellent. Definitely a place to visit if in the Skelligs area.More

Friendly service. They found us a lovely table with a view even though we didn’t have a reservation. Hubby had mussels and seafood chowder. I had the fish and chips. Everything was great.

I cannot believe the reviews of this place. Drizzles of this and swishes of that trying to disguise what was less than average food. Give this place a wide berth and try the much more authentic Blind Man.

We just popped in on Our way round the Ring of Kerry, and We received a Proper Irish Welcome, We had not long had a Late Breakfast and it was a bit early for Lunch,so we just had some Chips & a few drinks, Both...Good, the Guinness was Excellent ! The Seafood that was coming out for the other visitors looked fabulous also, The views here are Breathtaking, it looks more like the Caribbean than Ireland, but we did have a Nice Sunny day, We Will be going back the Next time we are down this way Again.More

This is an establishment totally geared up to deal with crowds and to serve them quickly and efficiently. It has to be for I know that this bay can get very busy indeed. So, it has to provide good food and service and this is...what it does in spades. If you want gourmet food then you don’t go to a beach restaurant on a tourist route. They do a cracking job here and the food is delicious with a varied choice to suit all. Can’t fault them in this regard. If fault they have, it is a little pricey.More

We just left this little JEM and can't wait to get back, while obviously taking the necessary covid-19 steps they still managed to give a great atmosphere, the staff are Fantastic, the food is so fresh it's out of this world, generous portions exceeded. I've...had seafood chowder all over the country but never anything as good as here. The restaurant and bar are Spotless and very regularly cleaned. The only other thing I can say about here is GO and see for yourselfMore

Visited o Carroll’s cove last night. Service was poor and food was only average. Would not recommend. Had read lots of great reviews and was really excited to go but was left disappointed with my overall experience.

Dropped into here for a light bite to eat at lunchtime and shared a mixed seafood selection with wife. It was delicious Prawns super tasty, squid soft with a lovely hint of pepper in coating and Hake with batter was light and full of flavour....Everything perfectly cooked and whilst deep fried wasn’t greasy. We’ll worth a visitMore
