As a coeliac it's hard to explain what a delight it is to have Gluten free Fish and chips and the portion was huge, so big I took a piece home and re-heated it later on and it tasted just as nice after a few pints in O'Sullivans.

We walked around Dingle and wanted to have dinner on the bay. This is really the only place on the bay which was a surprise. We really picked it for the view but found out we could have picked it for the ambiance, décor, service and the food at a moderate price. We started out with on order of mussels... More

We shared the 'Wild Atlantic seafood platter' for two. It was a fun dish to eat, and plenty for two-we didn't need a dessert. The view and position are great, although it was wet and dull the night we were there- it would be fantastic on a warm day to sit at one of the outdoor tables. The waitress was... More

My husband and I stopped here for a late lunch before driving round the Dingle Peninsula. The food exceeded our already confident expectations. I ordered the baked salon with a herb crust, on the menu it mentioned accompanying mussels so I thought I'd have a few out of shell placed on top of the salmon. Not so, instead to my... More

We stayed in Dingle for three nights. We ate here twice for dinner. The first night I had only seafood soup, which was awesome; however, my dining companions ordered the "Taste of Dingle" platter. They shared their's with me and I was amazed at the quality. The seafood quiche was tasty, as were the crab claws and the fish cakes.... More

After checking various menus posted in restaurants around Dingle, we decided on the Boat Yard. One of us was in search of mussels, and this place had them on the menu, prices were reasonable, and it had a nice view of the harbor. After getting our drinks we ordered the scallop appetizer, which the waitress soon informed us was not... More

Menu had a good variety. Had the fishcakes and calamari- really yummy. Staff were friendly (even though they the restaurant was packed) and wasn't too pricey. Good place to go for a relaxed meal with a view.

Nice variety on mixed seafood platter. Mussels were yummy! There was so much seafood that we never even tasted the chips, but they looked good!
