As we were staying for a week at a lovely B&B ardogeena in Durrus we ate twice at the Sheeps Head Inn. Very cute place but we had mixed experiences with the meals.

We first arrived to The Sheeps' Head Inn in December last year, after all day cycling Mizen Head. It was dark, cold and we found the most friendly atmosphere in there we could imagine. Food was delicious and Sinead made every effort to make us feel comfortable. We came back to The Sheeps' Inn after 2 months to cycle Sheeps'... More

A bed and breakfast as well as a pub, the Sheeps Head Inn is the place to stay in Durrus, off-season. Sinead and Pat, the owner, are extremely welcoming. It's charming and affordable, the food is very good, service is exceptional with great, laid-back hospitality. The rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet. When I arrived late on a freezing evening...

I must comment on the service first, it was Sinead who welcomed us first. a coffee and washroom break, which quickly turned into an evening of fun, drink and good food. A most memorable evening to say the least. Sinead not only gave us directions, she also found us a nice b&b which we loved. What a great recommendation. We... More

A group of us stopped off here yesterday after a hillwalk on the nearby Sheeps Head peninsula. There was very nice selection of food on offer, the staff couldn't have been more friendly. They lit the fire especially for us as well. The food was delicious, great value and huge portions just what was needed after a long day. Great... More

Had a couple of nice meals there during our weeks holiday. The beer is good, customers and staff are friendly. Have eaten here many times during our holidays to Durrus and have never been disappointed.
