If your looking for consistency don't bother coming here, went in for food at 3 & was told no food here quite abruptly, not even a hello, obviously lacked customer service or care, pity! my only bad experience in co.kerry, usually people are so friendly..

We took the ferry from Valentia. The restaurant is directly next to the ferry. The restaurant is very popular so we had to wait for some time. The staff was a bit stressed but still friendly. The seafood was very good.
