Great fish

All food in Dingle is expensive. Ashe's is too. The atmosphere felt very casual for the price of the food, but the fresh fish special was AMAZING.

We found the menu overpriced relative to portion size. We're not big eaters by any stretch but left still hungry. The vegetable accompaniment looked more suitable for a two year old child rather than an adult. A €14 euro scallop starter had just three half scallops, miserable. Killarney and Dublin restaurants provide much better quality for similar priced meals...

My wife and I had great meals here and great service. My wife wanted a lamb shank and even though it wasn't on the menu of the day the chef made it for and it was delicious.

Heard this was a restaurant frequented by the locals: the word must have gotten out. As a couple, we were able to walk in and make a booking within a half hour. When we returned, we were immediately seated, although on a corner with no room to spare. I was surprised that one would consider seating anyone in such a... More

Expecting better but a disappointment. We were a family of 4 adults and 3 children facilitated in a cramped corner near the bar on condition we vacated within 90 minutes! Food overpriced for quality served up which was below expectations. Service abrupt and lacked friendliness. Would not return.

Enjoyed a delicious meal at Ashes, and a relief to find somewhere in Dingle that sold meals other than seafood - both our steak and hake were excellent. Quality of food, atmosphere and helpfulness of the staff were all great. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

The one restaurant in Dingle where the owner of the dingle distillery decided to take some of us for a dinner and drinks. You will like it!

We had a lovely meal there about a week ago when we were down in Dingle for a weekend. Nice menu, helpful staff and fair prices.

The lobster/prawns were both sold out, so I tried the hake even through I really don't like fish and I found it pretty good. Two other people at my table also ordered it and they seemed to really enjoy it and they actually like fish. The last member ordered the beef and was only sad it was a pretty small... More

Ashe's restaurant is an amazing find, and if you come to Dingle for only a meal at Ashe's, it is well worth the trip. I have traveled all over, and consider our two dinners here at Ashe's among the top meals ever, and as clear highlights of my entire trip to Ireland. The chef is absolutely gifted and the staff...
