Lovely atmosphere in the pub. Great decor. Staff were very friendly even just observing them talking to other tourists sitting nearby.Lovely... More

We ended up here when we were looking fo a place to eat on our trip to Kerry and couldn't be more lucky. I have to say food is delicious (especially seafood) and service is really great. Would highly recommend this place.

I went to The Bridge many, many times during my stay in the area from Oct 16, 2014 to Jan 13, 2015. It has a warm, welcoming atmosphere set by Gerard, the owner, and well lived up to be his staff. The seafood is fantastic and, given the location, fresh as can be. I also enjoyed the roasts (lamb and... More
