Colorful Restaurant with delicious food

Delicious dinner, fresh fish and very delicious chowder too. We walked in this restaurant not having reservations. We had just driven to Dingle from a very tense drive through the Killarney National Park. We checked into our place and asked where a good place was to grab dinner. They recommended... read more

The food in Dingle is all quite good, but Out of the Blue brings it to a whole new level. They also could modify the entire menu to be gluten free. It does not look like much from the street but quite nice in the dining room.

I visited here on a Friday night in August with my girlfriend. We had been here a year previously and loved the restaurant. This time it was just as good. The menu is displayed on a blackboard as fish are caught fresh. There were 7-8 choices for starters and mains. We had the chowder and tuna for starter - both... More

Seafood was devious, but a bit over priced. Staff was polite and the seafood is brought in from the boat the same day.

Our first night in Dingle and we were looking for FRESH seafood. Out of the Blue filled the bill. Amazingly fresh fish and preparation worthy of the quality of the fresh. Fresh, innovative and welcoming!

Out of the blue is a very unpretentious establishment with good food. We were pleasantly surprised that they divided our portions into 2 plates when a staff heard that we were sharing a main. Kudos on the service!

Fantastic meal there last night, amazing fresh seafood with very interesting veg selection. Could not fault it. and very reasonable too!! The seafood chowder was one of the best I have ever had, loads of fish in it. The Scallops with rhubarb chutney was stunning. thanks

Everything about OOTB was different-- from the outside, you couldn't tell that it would be so gorgeous on the inside Probably our best meal of our time on Dingle. The food was great, the wine list was impressive, and the waitstaff was friendly, helpful, and prompt. Loved it!!

We had a great meal here last Sunday. The staff are very friendly and will explain the dishes if you are unsure. Everyone in our group had starters and mains and we were all very pleased with our meals. Would recommend to anyone wanting a special meal in Dingle.

This is a lovely snug restaurant. Our waitress was very helpful and polite. I had the whole langoustines which were to die for. The menu is changeable however so we were a bit disappointed when a dish with monkfish we saw on the previous nights menu was gone for our night. In one way its confirmation that everything really is... More
