There are two excellent seafood restuarants in town and this is one of them. Try both before you leave town, you won't regret it, even if you have to stay an extra day.

During our 2 week holiday in Kerry we ate in most of the highly rated trip advisor restaurants. Doyle's was by far the best on every occasion! We come to Kerry every year and Doyle's is always the highlight at the end of an afternoon in Dingle.

EXCELLENT experience. The atmosphere is relaxed and "fun". The food was fresh, delicious and very nicely presented. You won't regret a decision to dine here.

Doyle's was a recommendation from our innkeeper at Pax House B & B. All of us at the table were very pleased with our choices-even the vegetarians. The food was sublime and the waitstaff impeccable!

We were lucky to get a table for 2 at Doyle's without a reservation but we did and had a fabulous meal there. We both enjoyed the fresh caught seafood and locally sourced foods. Service is excellent.

The staff were very friendly yet professional and knowledgeable about the various dishes on offer. We actually went there 2 of the 3 nights we were in Dingle,the clam chowder as a starter with home made bread is almost enough as a meal in itself.To conclude...excellent service,food cooked perfectly,and good value.

We came here during our 2 night stay in Dingle. We ordered the craw claws and grilled oysters for a starter - they were good, but the best part was the main. I ordered the lobster which was delicious and my husband had the sea bass which was cooked Thai style. He really enjoyed it because it was so different... More

This restaurant was a terrible disappointment. We foolishly opted for the early bird option. Two courses for €25, we chose a main and dessert. The main was a tiny piece of hake sitting on a small amount of mash and a creamy sauce with peas and bacon. Hake slightly raw and a very small portion. We both had a glass... More

Once again my fellow Tripadvisors get it on the money!! Doyle's was incredible!! Quaint restaurant with exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. The menu was extensive and included a very reasonable early bird option (5-7pm) I had the calamari salad to start which was delicious and not in the slightest bit rubbery and the seafood risotto which was out of this...
