seafood chowder

The seafood chowder was the best I've ever had in my life! The rest of our meals were great--but I cannot stop thinking about the seafood chowder.

We visited Dingle in June and had a lovely meal in Ashes, we had gone for walk in the town and dropped into the pub for a drink. As it was the weekend we decided to book a table for later. I had fish chowder followed by monkfish scampi which was delicious. Hubby had crab done 3 ways and a... More

Some of the best food I've ever tasted! Whether you chose fish or meat you won't be disappointed. Quality & presentation of all courses is very high. Highly recommend pork belly & scallop's for main course (never tasted better) and if you have any space for deserts then opt for the amazing sticky toffee pudding. Staff extremely friendly and helpful... More

My friend and I ate here last Sunday. I had hake and she had a fish cake. Both were divine. Every bit of my side salad was delicious. Nicest meal I have had in a long time. My side plate had some dried food on it, but I swopped it with one at another table and that solved that problem.... More

We had an excellent meal. the menu has a very good selection. Unusual that the kitchen is on the second so the waiters definitely have to be fit. We enjoyed our dinner that much that after the concert at St. James Church we returned for our night cap before returning to our B&B out on Slea Head Drive.

This was world class. Excellent food. I am a vegetarian and the veggie risotto dish was one of the best I've ever had. My carnivore friends said their food was the best they had on our trip to Ireland. Highly recommend.

I stayed in Dingle for four nights. I ate at Ashe's twice for dinner and once for lunch. Despite the numerous choices I was so enjoyed my first meal I returned. Their menu is varied, a bit more expensive then some of the others in the area, but I found it well worth the little bit more. I had and... More

The staff was funny, informative, and the food was the best we tasted in Ireland. It was the friendliest place we visited too. I highly recommend this place.

We always enjoy a trip to Ashe's where we like the atmosphere and the food which is always good. The service is pleasant and the fish fresh.

After perusing their posted menu, my wife and I decided on the James G. Ashe Bar and Restaurant in Dingle Town. The host, whom I assume was Mr. Ashe, was at first somewhat reserved but soon stepped up to ensure that our dinner was memorable. The fresh seafood was amazing, particularly the pan-seared turbot (which was washed down with a... More
