Great atmosphere

We had a lovely meal here last week, the restaurant / pub was very busy and had a great atmosphere, we were greeted with a warm welcome by the host, didn't have to wait too long for a table and got a very tasty meal. We shared the chicken wings which were nice, then I had the steak which was... read more

We got to Carrigaholt very hungry around 11 on a mid-week morning. We looked around and asked at the small market on the corner. The Long Dock was suggested. It was as archetypal a pub as one could wish for. They were burning turf and charcoal in the hearth. Our hostess gave great service. Unwilling to wait for the menu... More

Spent a late lunch, late morning pint and evening meal at this fantastic boozer. Fresh fish cooked to perfection. Great setting in a lovely little village on the loophead peninsula. Two faults. Firstly, their meat dishes aren't anything to write home about. We had a pretty disappointing steak. Secondly, their no dog policy-complete madness in light of how suitable it... More

I went here not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. We just had starters and the main meal. The starter was nothing short of superb...smoked salmon, red onions topped with a lovely dressing. The starter came with a very nice home made brown bread . The main meal was well presented and plenty of vegetables. If there was a negative... More

Heard this was a lovely place to eat..so gave it a chance. Excellent staff..And very clean. Seafood chowder was ok...there was not much seafood in the chowder.. Such a shame. The crock of mussels we ordered were gorgeous served with fresh bread to soak up all the juices left! Grilled fish with fresh vegetables and a few cold ciders. Lovely... More

Food was good. Cockles and mussels were delicious, cold seafood platter was very good. Salad was good. Long Dock mess dessert was not good and not at all what I expected. It should've said parfait. Service was very slow

We visited here on a day trip to Loop Head. Excellent seafood chowder and crab salad. We sat outside in the sun and chatted with travellers from Poland and other countries. We will definitely return to try the scallops.

This is a restaurant in a pub and has a lovely atmosphere. It is located in a lovely picturesque village. We ate here twice as we really enjoyed our first meal. We chose from the à la Carte dinner menu the first evening and the kids ate from the kids menu. There was a great selection and a number of... More

After hearing raving reviews from my friends for years about The Long Dock, my boyfriend and I decided to go as a treat. The inside and outside are just gorgeous and I can see why its such a great place for tourists as its so traditionally Irish. We both ordered a pint of Heinicken and we were told that we... More
