Went here with my family and nana while visiting her over the Christmas period. Wasn't sure what to expect as I hadn't been here for a good 10 years but it was delightful! The food and wine was excellent - everyone's dish was beautiful and enough to be good value for money. The place itself is really easy going and... More

Castletownbere in general is a great surprise. A beautiful town, fantastic scenery and excellent restaurants. The Olde Bakery stands out as an Irish restaurant with a sophisticated flair. Traditional dishes are enhanced with original ideas. For example we had a dish listed as salmon and hake with a Parmesan coating. We got both (very fresh) fish filets cooked together in... More

Our B and B was on the west end of town and this was the closest restaurant. We ate dinner here twice. Both times were excellent. Good menu, tasty food, prompt service. In spite of being part of a large group, our experience was as though we were the only ones there. Great time.

We discovered this genuinely pleasant restaurant at the western end of town on a very wet and stormy evening. The pleasant atmosphere, excellent service and real good food were very much enjoyed. We fully recommend the Olde Bakery!

Was recently at the Olde Bakery at Castletownbere, for lunch on a Sunday and what a disappointment, started with a vegetable soup, it turned out it was a cauliflower soup with heads of cauliflower (maybe this was meant to be) the soup was watery, bland, un-appetising, if it was blended and seasoning added it could be a lovely light soup....

A friend and I were in Castletownbere for four nights and ate at this restaurant at three nights out of the four. The restaurant is comfortable, the staff are friendly, service very good and food is delicious. Most definitely recommended!

We liked the architecture and layout of the Olde Bakery enough to go in for a meal. The building is split in 2 - pub and restaurant, so we chose the latter. We were seated quickly and our order was taken as soon as we were ready. Indeed service was fast the whole evening. But that's not always a good... More

Have used this restaurant several times over the years, when on holiday in CTB and have yet to have a bad meal. Pleanty of room and nice atmosphere. Perfect for a large group or a couple. Staff have always been friendly and will return.
