We had dinner here after a long day exploring the Ring of Kerry. Many of the restaurants in the area offer food that seems to be similar to what I can get at home but I wanted something more "Irish".

The rooms on arrival exceeded my expectations. They were immaculate, very spacious, lovely power shower and perfectly central. Our breakfast and lunch and bar food... More

Had lunch. Nice place and food was quick and tasty, but nothing overly special. Fish and chips, sandwiches and such were very nicely prepared.

We are a family of 6, including 4 kids ranging in age from 2 to 20. We stopped here for a bite of lunch on the way from Killarney to Cork. The lunch menu had options to suit everybody, including garlic bread which our gang devoured. I had soup and chicken ciabatta which was delicious. The staff were friendly and... More
