Food and service was really good at any time of day or night. Lovely views from the windows over the quay and free parking for 3 hours on the quay, 1 euro per hour on the road, max stay 2 hours.

Just great food, we have eaten here numerous occasions and the food is always top grade. All the staff are very pleasant, and it's comfortable cosy surroundings. They offer a well chosen menu but the fish and chips option is very hard to beat, homemade chips and thick cod in a very light batter just perfectly cooked.

We had the best seafood chowder ever here. This was a bustling restaurant just by the harbour which was obviously very popular with locals and for very good reason. Good selection of craft beer. Comfortable seating and views of the quays. Smashing staff. Would reccomend and certainly visit again :)

This gastro-pub is positioned right beside the quay of a fishing town in a picturesque bay on the South Coast of Ireland. It is a great location, very friendly service, serves excellent food at reasonable prices, and, it has free reliable wifi; who could ask for more!

Dined here for dinner with family. Lovely pub/restaurant in a fabulous location! Food was very good except for the chips. Soggy and inedible.
