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.

Visited The Blue Bull on a recent trip around the Ring of Kerry, my husband had the Steak and I had the locally supplied Mussels, both were served very well and tasted delicious. Server was friendly and the overall atmosphere of the Pub could not faulted.

We went there with four friends, nice service, food was not very good and the highlight was the price for one glass apple spritzer (half Apple juice half water) for 5€! (2,5€ Apple juice, 2,5€ tap water), a bit ridiculous.

The food was very poor. Asked for pizza with little cheese for the children. Was served something that appear to be just a block of cheese melted. The chips were soggy. My children are not fussy eaters but wouldn't eat what was served them. I had a burger which was passable with more soggy chips. My wife had a stir... More

We were very disappointed with this meal. My 3 boys (10, 8 and 4 years), hubbie and myself chose The Blue Bull because we fancied seafood. For starters I had chicken wings, which were just roasted wings with sweet chilli sauce from a bottle. No marinade or anything on the chicken, just wings, at 8.95 euro! Mussels at 17 euro... More

A lovely pub with excellent food. Ate there several times and whilst all the food was very good the burgers were so good that I may return to Sneem just to have one!

Lady behind the counter was most helpful in finding us a place to stay for the night. Called half the town. And the food was great too! We came in hungry and the traditional fish and chips were perfect.

We had dinner at the Blue Bull while we where travelling around Ireland. I guess it's the place you would go if you really wanted to immerse yourself in an Irish atmosphere. The food was lovely and the woman that served us saved our lives: me and my friends really needed a place to sleep for the night and she... More

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
