Such a hidden gem!

After taking a wrong turn taking the coastal route between Bandon and Clonakilty. Being out of season the sign helpfully encouraged us to drive in. Had a lovely chat with the owner and the interior is beautiful. The absolute highlight was sitting outside drinking in the view! Well worth a visit!

With a room booked at the Glen Country House B&B we wanted a close restaurant and The Pink Elephant was 5 minutes away. Beautiful view, especially at sunset. The food and service were both good. The only thing I thought was a bit odd is that we sat down initially in the bar, ordered our food and then were seated... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by Eileen of Seafield Farmhouse. The staff was friendly and courteous. The owner sat down for a chat. The carrot tarragon soup was yummy and the lobster with garlic butter even better. Not to be missed if you are in the area. Also the views are breath-taking.

We had a lovely dinner at the Pink Elephant. The restaurant is beautiful with a lovely bar as part of the dining room. Our dinner was delicious with wonderful service. It was dark, but they are located overlooking the ocean so would be a wonderful view during daylight.

The service in the Pink Elephant is possibly the best in Ireland. The Irish are a friendly race so I would think the service in this establishment is probably the best in the world. I visited in on a freezing cold Sunday afternoon right at the birth of March. The views from the dining room are spectacular. The restaurant was... More

Just visited The Pink Elephant for lunch to celebrate my friend's hen party. I can't thank Niall and the team more for all they did. The service was fantastic, atmosphere amazing and even though the weather was not in our favour, you can certainly see the attraction in its location with amazing views across the water. The team really laid... More

Spacious, good and friendly service, drinks available, good food, reasonable. It is quite a walk from Bridgeview Farmhouse but it's lovely in the dark, by moonlight and the stars. Alllow fo that coming home.
