We visited Nick's having been recommended it by friends. We had booked a table earlier in the evening as it was the Sunday of Puck Fair. On arrival we stood and waited for 5-10 minutes before we could see any staff! We eventually were shown to a table which had dishes from the previous sitting stacked on it and pieces... More

This had a cranberry/raspberry sauce and the sauce was lovely with the brie. For the main course I had steak and this was very good. Had Eton mess for dessert and this had strawberry... More

Delicious food and quaint setting. Very busy due to the Puc fair and a bit roudy but worth a visit for the food. Staff were lovely and nothing was a bother considering how busy they were.

My wife and I have dined in a lot of different restaurants of differing qualities throughout the world. Personally, I cannot stand any form of pompousnous. I like to dine and drink in friendly atmospheres and relaxed that the local people go to. If you like excellent and friendly service then you will be attracted to Nick's. If you enjoy... More

We chose Nick's in Killorglin for dinner and drove over from the Gap of Dunloe area. We did not have a reservation, but were seated immediately in the renovated bar area which was cosy and inviting. The piano player was nearby but the playing was atmospheric and did not interfere with our ability to talk over dinner. Dinner was very... More

I highly recommend Nick's. I had the crab claws, which were excellent and two of the kids had the duck and loved it. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, we enjoyed live piano music and great wine. Prices were good and the food was great!
