I would highly recommend the seafood tagliatelle to anyone who likes a bit of fish with a twist. The view from the restaurant looks out into the staggeringly beautiful Dunmanus Bay.In a nutshell, Arundels is a simple... More

We found Arundels when touring the peninsular on an unusually warm April day. The welcome was very warm and we were found a table despite a number being reserved.Service was friendly, the menu wide and varied and the food was very good. I would imagine this is a very popular restaurant during the summer as the location and views are... More

Welcoming host and excellent food in a great spot. Need to book ahead in summer as it was busy even on a late Sunday evening, this shows how good it is.

Food choices are excellent with fresh local produce and seafood to the fore. Sat outside here on a sunny day with a bottle of hairy... More

Amazing Place, Especially With Liam & Eilis Running It. Amazing location, beautiful food, lovely craft beers, great staff and Liam/Eilis are fantastic! Not many pubs in Ireland where you can have a drink in the beer garden and fish off the rocks at the same time! Thanks guys and see you soon.
