We stopped here after a visit to the Aquarium. Given the location we all opted for fish which was a great decision. The food was quick, fresh and tasty. Staff were friendly and great with the kids. Small and cosy but booking would be recommended as we got the last table and seen many others turned away!

Beautiful lunch in the boatyard-great value and service. Both my friend and I had crab and she had chowder. Both were incredible. The service was very fast. I would go back again and again. I saw people having the special scallops and another calamari. Everything looked delicious.

Don't get me wrong this is a good restaurant, nice food, nice interior and setting and good service however it is ridiculously over priced. It is one of the things that annoys me about Dingle, just because there are loads of really high quality restaurants which charge €25-35 for a main, everyone else thinks it can do the same. It...

Loved the atmosphere, the food, the service, and the staff's friendliness toward the grandchildren in our extended family of 10. They weren't able to accommodate us on our arrival on Saturday night, but took reservations for Sunday and treated us like family.

On a sunny day, you can't beat the outside patio of The Boatyard to embrace the beauty of Dingle Harbor, to savor the breeze of the sea, or to enjoy the warmth of the Irish people. Even if the weather is less than perfect, ask for an outside table to be embraced by the warmth of Dingle.

Loved the atmosphere here, right across the road from the water and windows all about. The food was excellent, I had the seafood pie and it was a gourmet treat, and the staff very accommodating with a great sense of humor.

Super friendly wait staff. Excellent food. Very accommodating to people with nut allergies, large groups (we had 14) and kids. They bake their own nut free bread and even sent some along with us.

A warm welcome from the staff... an amazing seafood platter for one ... a check in from the owner, Gavin to make sure we were happy... The best seafood platter I have ever had. I didn't want it to end. Good portions, lovely relaxed environment and everything tasted fresh. Perfection!! Must eat there if you go to Dingle.

Can't say enough good things about this restaurant! Wonderful glass enclosure looks out over Dingle Bay. Highly recommend seafood stew. It was very chunky of great seafood. Wonderful! This would be $24.95 in DC but only €6.95 in Dingle. Very friendly staff that was attentive and helpful. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant 😀
