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

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.

Staying in Durrus, we visited the Inn on a few occasions - once for an evening meal. It is a great pub, filled with locals and tourists and serves a great pint of Murphy's Stout. Our meal needed to meet the needs of 3 generations - there was an expansive menu with further specials available. The food was very fresh... More

And we found it! The Sheeps Head is a large pub/restaurant, the menu is extensive and caters for all. We ate in the bar which is comfortable with an open fire, the staff were friendly and the menu was explained. Our food arrived freshly cooked, piping hot and plenty of it, we also offered more veg if we needed it... More
