Perfect Beara Finish to a Perfect Beara Day!

After a fabulous boat trip around Beara Bay, I had the most fabulous evening meal in such a lovely atmosphere. The food tasted as great as it looked served by friendly staff- I had the hot chicken wings with the nicest blue cheese dip I have ever tasted. The salmon linguine was to die for. And the... read more

We visited this restaurant for Sunday lunch during August 2015, and found it very disappointing. There are no menus in use, must read from a blackboard, standing alongside two tables, which could be very awkward and embarrassing if these tables were occupied, which they weren't during our visit. There were very few people in the restaurant, and it lacked atmosphere.... More

I ended up here by accident as I couldn't get parking in main parking areas. Olde Bakery is at end of town, just before road to Allihies. It's well worth a visit, staff are lovely, place is spotless with some fabulous art on the walls. It was quiet when I got there, but starting filling up almost immediately as it... More

Stopped by for lunch, plenty of parking outside, whilst most of the town is somewhat problematic for parking. The place was quiet, which I put down to it being a little way from the centre of town. A good menu and the order was served without much of a wait. The lunch was very tasty and plentiful, I would go... More

We stopped at the Olde Bakery for lunch and were happy that we did. W estopped on the recommendations from people on Tripadvisor and now I must add my own good words. The service was fast, the place was clean and warm on a very rainy day. We had seafood chowder with brown bread and cream of celery soup with... More

Only two people there already eating, still took 45 minutes to get three orders of fish and what we were told would be "chicken supreme". The fish was just about ok (tiny portions of hake) the chicken turned out to... More

The second night, it was very crowded and service was a bit slower, to be expected for a party of 15. All meals were... More
