We were a family group of 8 who booked The Boatyard for an 8pm dinner. Only one of the group ordered a starter of crab claws which were a 20min wait. Our orders were taken and food was not served until an hour later. We understood from the waitress that a large group were being served before us which caused... More

Forty minutes after we had ordered, and with three other tables of customers who had arrived after us receiving their orders (with mussels), we asked when we... More

We were visiting Dingle for three nights and had planned to have lunch here for one of our meals. The view was beautiful and we wound up having to come back again for lunch the next day because we enjoyed our meal so much. Probably the best fish and chips I have ever had, and the crab claws were outstanding.... More
