I visited there with a girl friend, stayed at another hotel whose food was forgettable. We were delighted when we found this little gem. The menu showed imagination, was varied and offered local produce which was important to us. Everything we chose was excellent, fresh and very well prepared, cooked and served. They offer rooms and a holiday cottage which... 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

Went on 12th September as a group from different European countries. We all agreed the food was awful. even the people who actually got what they ordered! Service was okay but the food caused a few upset stomachs within our party. Would not recommend under any circumstances.
