The Long Dock Restaurant never disappoints us. It has a warmth and friendliness combined with good food. They fully support the idea of local suppliers and they only serve up the very freshest and flavoursome food. We have had many great experiences with hosts Tony & Imelda are superb hosts and all staff are very friendly. We returned for lunch... More

I usually look forward to coming here...being a local..it made it easy to go whenever it suited. I found the quality of food, although better than most restaraunts, lacking. The service was left to one elderly lady, who although knew and attended keenly to the regulars, picking up takeaway, left her tables lacking, and seemed to be struggling as we... More

This friendly pub Carrigaholt is treasure. The warm and welcoming open fire creates the perfect ambiance to enjoy a pint of Guinness. The staff are friendly and make a visit a memorable occasion. I can recommend the Chowder and any seafood main course. Most of the fish is local caught and cooked by a first class Chef.
