Consistently good food.

Have eaten here on numerous occasions. Service was slow and drinks we had ordered were left sitting for at least 5 mins, not so good when it's a Guinness and beer. Food rather expensive €8.95 for chowder?? Food is well presented. Should look at pricing.

Had some fantastic food again at Dunes. Attentive staff, great atmosphere but most of all, some of the best food in Ireland.

We stopped off here after a morning on Inchydoney Beach. The actual design of the restaurant was lovely with an ocean feel. The staff were very friendly and as for the food it was amazing. We also saw other customers food and wanted to try it all. The fish was so fresh and the actual presentation was lovely to see.... More

The staff are warm and welcoming. The tapas plate is lovely - I had it as a main course one night with a side portion of chips. My husband had the duck noodles one night and he thought this was super. We had to check the specials out ourselves. The staff did not draw attention to them when handing out... More

Plenty of choice, casual dining at Inchydoney Island hotel. There is a more formal restaurant upstairs, which is very nice, but also more expensive. Always busy. Friendly staff. Good portion sizes. Kids menu good.

I was last weekend for lunch at Dunes Pub and Bistro. I had sirlion steak and was realy tasty! It was a sort of sizzling steak. With the dish, you will get als chips and salade. It was more then enough. The restaurant is lying at the sea. A lovely spot to walk along the sea after lunch.

Delicious bar food at reasonable prices. We would recommend this as an alternative to the more formal restaurant.
