The food is amazing. The setting is very homely and warm. The staff are extremely friendly. If you are close to Nohoval you must go to the Finders Inn. You will not be disappointed. They have a nice selection of fish dishes and meat dishes catering for all tastes. The crab leg starter is fantastic and the steaks are divine.... More

This is an absolute gem of a restaurant/ bar. Really lovely menu, great service. Cosy atmosphere in the Winter. We had a delicious three course meal and would certainly return here.

I love this place, always freshest fish and the seafood parcel is only gorgeous. Everything was piping hot and delicious. The only drawback with this place is the location, it is too far from the city so there always has to be a designated driver!

Music was very loud and we did ask them twice to turn it down and the... More

Finders Inn of Nohoval is truly an example of old world charm and quality of service with a beautifully designed menu. In my opinion this gastropub deserved a place in the Michelin guide that was printed only this week as well. This is a much better place to go than some of the names on that guide. We booked an...

We decided for our splurge meal in Kinsale t find something a bit out of town. Then Finder's was mentioned and, boy, it really delivered the goods. Set in a small town across from a church from 1744, and the restaurant building itself is 100s of years old, it all created the setting for an experience. We were given a... More

Again beautiful presentation and flavours. We finished with warm apple tart and espresso coffees. It doesn't get any better than this and to think we have this on... More
