Wow. We got a table by the window and watched the sun set over the water as we ate. We splurged and got steak... it was large, so a good thing we shared. We also indulged in a dessert with meringue and raspberries. We'd had an incredible meringue dessert in Killarney, and while it didn't quite live up to those... More

We had dinner one evening whilst staying on holiday in a cottage by the beach in Inch so we were able to walk to Sammy's for dinner. The beach is stunning and it was lovely to sit and enjoy a pint of Guinness on the terrace overlooking the sea at sunset after surfing and walking. We then had dinner in... More

We stopped here as part of an organised coach trip. After a bracing walk along the beach we were welcomed a delicious hot chocolate inside Sammy's. Other were enjoying some of the delicious cakes and other items from their extensive and varied menu. It is large inside and has a bar too. The views are absolutely amazing!

Early October and the cafe still has a good customer turnover. Tea with toasted sandwiches followed by cakes were much needed on this chilly morning. Plenty of staff ensured prompt service. All good.

Arrived on a very rainy day and pleasantly surprised to discover Sammys with great views, excellent seafood chowder, bar and cafe. Highly recommended pitstop if not staying at Inch Beach.

Apart from the breathtaking setting and view of Inch Beach, and the fact that the restaurant is very modern and clean, their oysters are wonderful. I ordered 6 oysters in the half-shell and they were the best I have ever had! Highly recommended. The squash soup was also very good.

We visited Sammy's twice - once in the afternoon after walking the Inch Strand beach - and one the next evening for dinner while watching the sunset over the Atlantic off the coast of the Dingle Peninsula. Excellent food - we had the Seafood Pasta and the Seafood Chowder - and they were outstanding! The service was superb - with... More

So, I love this location! The view of the beach is lovely. The people are kind. In fact one of the waitresses was from the states as well. Unfortunately she was the only waitress that evening so the service was a bit on the slow side, but the food was good and fresh. The chowder was scrumptious and the fish... More

My wife and I stopped here on our way from Killarney to Dingle. It sits on a beautiful beach. The restaurant has lots of picnic tables, for eating outside on the beach. The staff was super friendly, the atmosphere was amazing, and the food was wonderful. Very fresh seafood and as well as free parking. Truly a must stop on... More
