I came here last week with a friend for a lunch. Just what the doctor ordered as the day was miserable. We had a lovely fresh soup to warm us up followed by yummy toasted sandwiches. The piece the resistance was the tea and scones for desert. Sometimes it's the little things that count but it just... read more

The view from the restaurant is beautiful and our meals were just what we expected. Restaurant staff weren't overly friendly - seemed to be there to do a job - not to carry on any conversations.

On our sixth trip to Ireland, I experienced a phenomenon not previously experienced….mediocre service. As in being walked past four times without being asked if we wanted anything to drink and having to walk up to the bar for service. As in nobody checking afterward for refills or another Guinness. Not used to that in this great country. Can't say... More

This was very convenient to have lunch here after a round of golf on the Old Course. They have an adequate selection of sandwiches which were tasty and the views are great overlooking the golf course and Atlantic Ocean. The price was fair also.

This legendary club has a lovely restaurant overlooking the spectacular 9th hole (I think), the cliffs of Ballybunion and the ocean. Make sure you take a walk down to the seashore! The food is nice but the real draws are the club itself and the view.

The golf is outstanding but the bar/.restaurant is standard club type fare. the soup and sandwiches are OK but nothing special. Certainly worth a stop after a round of golf or if you're travelling in the area because the scenery is spectacular.

The food was surprisingly good - the waitress suggested the fish & chips which were excellent. The fish had a nice crispy crunch on the outside and tender white fish piping hot on the inside. The chips were nice & crispy - which I prefer over the often under-cooked, soft style you see all throughout Ireland. So I loaded them... More

View is outstanding, but food average. Nice people and easy to grab a bite before tee time. For an open area it was fine. I suspect the members area is much nicer
