We had dinner here with our boys and visiting friends as came recommended on local reviews and we were staying at Parknasilla so it was close. This would be what most would look for in a traditional pub/restaurant and the menu has some great choices. Food was excellent and service attentive. Comment: there was no "smaller portion" menu for our... More

We stopped there for food while doing the ring of kerry tour . It's what we would imagine of an old Irish pub , the menu was good with some real tradition dishes mixed with modern so something for every one . It is not cheap though for pub food , average meal is between 10-13 Euros . Great atmosphere... More

The menu was large and catered to all tastes - fish, mussels, hamburgers etc, or a light lunch such as a sandwich. I chose vegetable soup and soda bread with a glass of beer (7.10€). Their restroom was spotless.

We stopped here on our drive along the Ring of Kerry for a late lunch. The portions were big and everything was well prepared.

We had a drink and a meal at the blue bull. The staff behind the bar were very friendly and welcoming. A nice varied menu with a good selection. If you're ever in sneem its well worth popping in for a bite to eat and a drink.(so to some the blue bull up) Good food good drink good price.

Portions were very generous and the... More

We had been looking for traditional Irish food and went into the Blue Bull. That is what we got. There was a single person serving the food and beer to the locals. She was on top of it. We had a very tasty meal in front of us in no time at all. I tried the Irish stew and my... More
