After a long day of traveling, we stumbled upon the Anvil Inn and decided to stop for dinner. We had a very nice meal and Liz, the owner, who was very busy, took the time to chat with us and discovered we had nowhere to stay that evening. She offered us a room and we gladly accepted. Our room was... More

Went for dinner yesterday at the Anvil and I must say the place has changed alot in 2 years! I had a lot of pity for the new poor bar girl there she seemed very under pressure. It was clear last night to me and my friends that the place is UNDERSTAFFED. It took 20 minutes to get our menus... More

Two friends and I arrived from Tralee and were so warmly greeted by the staff in the B&B. The food was delicious as well! We were shown our room, which was lovely and bright, although two of the lads had to top and tail, we didn't mind! The lady who seemed to run / own the place was so nice... More

Stopped at The Anvil bar on the way home from Inch strand. The outside is very attractive and definitely was our reason for stopping. The young woman that served us was really nice and polite. The food was just gorgeous. Proper home cooked grub. Very tasty. We ate in the beer garden which does need a little TLC. We will... More

Our family of seven spent an evening dining and chatting with publican Liz at the Anvil this past June. Upon hearing that my dad was trying to chase down his Famine emigrants, she got on the phone and started calling friends with the same surname. The food was excellent and even our vegetarian child was accommodated (!) Warm and authentic... More

The family stopped here during our stay on the peninsula. We had driven past several times and the place is as cute as can be. The great care they take on the outside is reflected inside as well. Real Irish pub feel in a roomy setting. Food was very good - hot, tasty, and good sized portions. But, best of... More
