Super seafood on a good early bird deal

Dingle is full of restaurants and bars. We were recommended to go to Doyle's. Great choice. Superb chowder for starters, full of fish. Then a very delicate hake on champ mash with vegetables. Dessert was a passionfruit and berry compote - very tasty. Service was good, laid back music, local lager... read more

Great food in an informal situation in the heart of Dingle. Again I had great Irish salmon which is hard to been. Tender and flaky with a great sauce. It is perhaps the best place to eat in Dingle. I would definitely return if I am in Dingle again.

My friend and I ordered the goat cheese appetizer and it was literally the best food I've ever put in my mouth. The restaurant is a little pricey - the meals ranging from $25-$40. But everything is delicious, so you can't go wrong. Staff was friendly. Atmosphere was comfortable.

If you are looking for a great sea food meal in Dingle- you really should head to Doyle's. Its a few blocks from the main part of town which provides a bit of out-of-the-way appeal. The wait staff was warm, welcoming and appropriately attentive. The salmon was cooked as requested and tasted delicious. The seafood risotto was outstanding with a... More

The menu has a very good selection of meat and seafood dishes of local ingredients. The bar is also well-stocked, with local liquors and a good choice of wines. The seating area is a bit tight in the front, especially as we were seated in the middle of the room. The staff were knowledgeable and thorough in explaining all dishes,... More

When we told people that we would be in Dingle we were frequently urged to eat at Boyles. Boyles was the standard, we were told. The difficulty with this, frequent travelers will tell you, is that expectations become unrealistic. Not so Boyles. Service is impeccable: service is changed at every course, the staff attentive and professional. I was in conversation... More

Food was amazing, service was very good (friendly but not overly so), price was expensive (but worth it!), ambience was relaxed and cosy. Would definitely eat here again.

I took the opportunity whilst on a recent trip to Dingle to sample a few different restaurants in different parts of the town. One of those was Doyles Seafood Bar of St John’s Street. Walking in off the street I was warmly greeted on entering and, after a shortish wait, a table was prepared for me. I found the restaurant... More
