Nice Pub - good food

Found this little jewel of a pub on the east side of town and were not disappointed. It seemed to be quite popular with older couples rather than young couples and sticky noisy kids as we discovered in one of the other pubs we went into. The evening food was great and the atmosphere very... read more

Fabulous little gem in the beautiful town of Sneem, County Kerry. The staff made us feel right at home and even though a very popular spot they were very attentive. The food was excellent, such that we wanted to try everything on the menu! Great atmosphere and all that we expected and hoped to experience from a little town in... More

I enjoyed this restaurant and food was delicious. Portions were well served. Staff was very nice and helpful since my 2 year-old was quite tired and in a "crying" mood. They did not give up until he was settled, offering him colouring pencils and even a clementine, since he refused to eat his dinner. Kitchen was closing when we went... More

Nice place but a little bit expensive for pub food, had a nice atmosphere . I ordered chicken noodles a bit spicy.

We arrived late on Sunday evening at the Blue Bull, and thought we might be too late for food but were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome and in no time at all were sitting down to an enormous dish of fat and juicy fresh mussels, and a sizzling lean sirloin steak. Overall .. gorgeous food, great atmosphere, lovely... More

Ate here recently for dinner with the kids. Menu selection was ok. We got burgers. They were fine and at a good price. Friendly staff. Overall our experience was fine but not sure if I would rush back.

Enjoyable lunch in clean pub/restaurant with friendly staff. If on the Ring of Kerry be sure to stop in Sneem at The Blue Bull for lunch or dinner. You won't be sorry.

We were only in Sneem for two nights but enjoyed the food here so much that we ate here both evenings. On the 1st evening I had the Irish Stew and my husband had the mussels which were a huge portion. On the 2nd evening we both had the stew followed by a tasty toffee pudding to share. Prices reasonable... More

Chucky Chowder plus very tasty Fish & Chips. If you get stuck for accommodation on a Friday or Saturday night, the lady in the restaurant will bend over backwards to find you a B&B

We arived after the kitchens had finished - but they still were happy to get us some Irish stew - which was delicious and really good value at 10 Euros, with tender lamb and tasty veg. Like all good Irish pubs, it was quirky and friendly.
