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.

Visited here September without checking reviews.... My first impression was not good, lots of flies and no light in the toliets. Rather than leave there and then, we stupidly remained and ordered two sandwiches and tea. The order was taken by a man wearing a filthy shirt who then stood staring at us for several minutes which was really uncomfortable... More

What chef would produce burnt food have they no pride in what they serve up. Ruined the whole meal. But should have... More
