Food was absolutely terrible, bar man and woman very ignorant

Ate here on a Saturday evening, woman of the house hadn't a good word to say about anyone passing outside and the man of the house was as ignorant as they come. Ordered the toasted sandwich and chips , absolutely terrible taste , chips burnt and the ingredients just tasted cheap, stay well away... read more

Yeah, the other comments pretty much say everything there is to say. It was the worst pizza i ever ate in my life. At least we got a free soup, which wasn't bad. But it just doesn't cover for wasting time and money in this terrible place.

We were there last week, a party of 10. The landlord and Landlady couldn't have been more helpful. We drank in there on several occasions and dined there on Friday evening. The food prepared for us (Lamb Casserole) was superb. The place was clean throughout and the Guinness excellent. We has a great time in there.

Warning Rainbows has changed its name. Lough a Voule is the new name over the door. I wonder will anything change?

When we arrived in this bar/restaurant we thought, judging by the decor, that we had pretty much landed on our feet, how wrong we were. The staff, unfriendly. The food, awful. In-fact I'm nearly sure my chicken was gone off.... I never ate it & I never complained as I had the misfortune of seeing another table complain & get... More

The best restaurant that we have visited in West Cork. It also has the best pint of Guinness that I have had, to go with it. The bar staff were utterly charming, and the best atmosphere I have encountered in the whole of Munster. The hospitality of the owners was outstanding, and the customer service were second to none. Defiently... More
