Food to die for .....

This restaurant had been recommended by a friend who is a foodie ... and was an absolute delight! The "seafood sausage" starter was a pure delight - much like a seafood mousse but with a fresh sauce drizzled over and small seafood delights to accompany. The fish - I had Dover sole - was beautifully... read more

Really tasty food and attentive staff. Yummy bread. What a delight to the tastebuds! Of course the beer was good from the tap. You need to make a reservation as we did and it was the only vacant table in the place.

Made our reservations after a 9 hour tour of the Ring of Kerry. We were parched and hungry. The 4 of us were seated in a corner by the window. The garlic potato pancake (6!) appetizer was delicious—moist with a fluffy crust. Heavenly like nothing any of us had ever had. My husband ordered the seafood sausage for his main... More

We made a late reservation at Packie's We were a little taken aback upon arrival to find how small the premises is and that we had to wait some time to be seated. However everything worked out wonderfully well. We were seated at a good size round table for 4 in the smaller room. The breads and tapenade were super... More

We arrived without a reservation and the restaurant was full, but thank goodness there was a table for 2 along the wall.. One of the best (if not the best) dinners we enjoyed in our travels throughout Ireland this visit. We both dined on the rack of lamb and split Sticky Toffee for dessert. Would definitely return to this restaurant... More

I am still swooning over this meal! I had the potato pancakes and the crab cake for an appetizer, both of which were fantastic! I had pasta and scallops for dinner and they were both phenomenal! The staff, the chef, the ambiance - EVERYTHING was perfect.

I have travelled to many countries in my time and enjoyed many fine restaurants. Packies is simply the best experience I have had... ever!! For starters we had Parsley Pancakes and Spinach and Prawns in a filo pastry. Oh my god the taste is just amazing. The sauce on the side is stunning. Packies is well known for its seafood... More
