Great Tasting Menu

We really enjoyed our meal at The Global Village. We decided to try the tasting menu which was a special treat. As my husband is a celiac, we wanted to ensure that they could handle his requirements and they were very sensitive to his needs. The tasting menu was wonderful - one of the best meals... read more

I just ate at this restaurant after pondering the several choices that Dingle offers for anyone interested in great food and I am so happy I did! I loved how the chef combined ingredients in an unexpected way and the combinations worked beautifully. His seafood was spectacular. Well worth the visit. Were I to have stayed longer in Dingle it...

The duck I had here was the best I have experienced anywhere in the world! And the John Dory enjoyed by my wife was exceptional. Wine list was very good and service was friendly but efficient.

We were advised to go there by a local shop nearby. We started with appetizers that really were pretty out there but tasty. Dinner arrived and we were impressed with the presentation. But once we began to savour our meals we all became quite disappointed. Perhaps we're just not into that type of fish...Hake has a tremendous amount of scales.... More

What an experience on our first night in Dingle! This restaurant uses only local ingredients including the fine local seafood and veggies from the area. The chef has international experience and his menu and the preparation is magnificent. Appetizers included a trio of crab preparations, which included a crab and apple salad, a crab parfait, and a crab bisque to... More

They have great food and great service. We went in on a busy night but our hotel was able to reserve a table for us. It's also across the street from Foxy John's, one of the best pubs in Dingle.

Great food well served. We went for the 'early bird ' menu..A little pricey for the quantity received. Even had to pay extra for additional potatoes. Nevertheless an interesting experience. House wine was expensive. Still peckish when I left.

Ok, this place was recommended to us by a local. The menu has options for seafood and meat lovers and the place seems to pride itself on its unique menu. It's on the upscale dining side of the spectrum in Dingle. After 10 or so minutes a waiter came by to take our drink and food order. The apps arrived... More
