Went for a weekend stay at smuggles creek inn the first weekend in January. We got lucky with the weather, sunshine all day long on Saturday. We booked the small self contained bunglow at the back of the Inn. It was prefect. Very clean, warm and offered us a bit more alone time when we wanted it. The bar has... More

Usual top notch service that you expect in an Irish pub. Reasonable prices. Fantastic view of the beach if you arrive early and bag a window seat. You need to reserve in high season but the food is worth it.

We will be back soon with visitors. It is presently only open at the weekends so I recommend you book well in advance so not to... More

This was our second trip to Smuggler's Creek. It is such a nice, charming pub, with a fantastic restaurant attached. The food is really good - high quality. The view over the beach is magnificent. We stayed two nights in room 6, which was a good size room with a larger bathroom than expected. I'd really recommend this room. All... More

Great location with a wonderful view of wild surf hitting the beach. The food in the restaraunt for lunch and dinner was great, really friendly staff that went the extra mile like coming in an hour early on Sunday just to do us breakfast before we left or bringing an extra soup to try for lunch after me saying my...

On the Friday night six of us had dinner which was the best three course meal I have had in ages!! As I live and work in London I am fortunate enough to be able to dine in some lovely... More

Went here on a Thursday night for some food with family and friends. Decor was quite modern but with a local feel to it. Menu was pretty varied and prices were reasonable. I opted for fish and chips and other people had the scampi. The food came within a reasonable time and the portions were really generous and well presented.... More
