It was my first time in Monkstown at the Bosun and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal at the bar. We ate from the early bird menu and enjoyed a fish and beef dish. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was very relaxed. The menu had so many options it was hard to choose! I will definitely be returning here... More

It's been a while since we ate at The Bosun but it didn't disappoint. We ate from the early bird menu which was very good value but yet the food was fabulous. The staff were lovely & checked that we were happy. I would highly recommend eating here & will return.

All of us felt that The Bosun has the best pub food in Co. Cork. Yes, they do have a restaurant but we decided to stay at the pub. The... More

The Bosun is out on its own . It is an extremely well run guesthouse with staff that actually are as friendly as Irish people are supposed to be. The food is absolutely perfect and varied and there is nowhere else in Ireland you will get a better pint of Murphy's stout. The rooms are quite small but very cosy... More

We had a lovely meal here with family in the restaurant area. The food and services was excellent. It was just fabulous and we will be going back again soon. I would recommend the restaurant for a quiet meal but the bar food is just as good for a more casual meal.

I was here for a relatives confirmation lunch. We picked from a set menu. I chose the mussels and the penne pasta dish. The food arrived relatively fast and was delicious. The garlic mussels were really to die for! For dessert I had the Raspberry Brownie cheesecake which was also very nice indeed. Service was a small bit slow but... More
