Food quality is very ordinary. Food standard is 5/10. The eating area is very limited in terms of space . We visited at lunchtime between Christmas and New Year . The location and friendliness of the staff were good but the rest was average at best.

We were in Dingle on a rainy day off-season. The ladies at the Chowder House were extra welcoming. The bread was brought in fresh from the bakery while we were eating and the soup and BLT were superb. Excellent stock for the soup and thick slices of bacon for the BLT.

So glad we ate here. I had plaice with mashed potatoes, my husband had fish and chips. We are both very discerning when it comes to fish but both meals were absolutely delicious. A big part of the reason we would like to revisit Ireland!

I've been here many times and I've always had a lovely experience. The food is always perfect and the staff are always polite and friendly. It's the first place I go to when I am visiting Dingle. Try the liver meal for a change, it is so good, perfectly cooked. Toilets are always well stocked and clean. Prices are very... More

The food here is fantastic!!! My husband had the clam chowder and I had a goat cheese, tomato, and avocado open faced sandwich. We also had the brownie for dessert which was as equally wonderful. The staff also made a ham and cheese sandwich for our two boys (ages 4 and 2). It's always nice when places accommodate your children.... More

We shared two sandwiches - both vegetarian and they were delicious. Simple, good service and great food. Ice cream shop across the street too for dessert!

Had lunch with friends and I must say it was really good. I myself had the lambs liver and it was delicious. My friend had the salmon and she was really pleased. The service was excellent and the food reasonably priced.
