Excellent Food, Friendly Service, Stunning View

The Pierhouse Hotel Restaurant is a friendly place with a dining room with a beautiful view. Service was friendly and accommodating. Food was plentiful though a bit heavy. Wholeheartedly recommended for a semi-casual, semi-fancy evening out.

We were visiting the isle of Lismore and decided to stay over at the Pierhouse Hotel the night before and get an early ferry in the morning and were delighted we made that decision. We booked in and were offered an upgrade to a lovey room with spectacular sea views at a small surcharge on top of our original room... More

Came across this fantastic place by accident and so glad we did.Unbelievable setting right at the water. We had lunch outside which was great.The staff were so friendly and the place was bright and spotless? We will definitely go back when in the area.

Amazing location. Only stopped for a cake and tea. Staff were friendly. We sat outside on the veranda in the sunshine and it was perfect. Felt jealous of the people arriving to stay in the hotel.

Have just returned from a one night stay at the Pierhouse. Lovely room with loch view, exactly as advertised and excellent value for money for B&B. Table with a view for cooked breakfast on a bright November morning was icing on cake. Enjoyed pre-dinner drinks by the fire after watching the sun set over Lismore. The scallops were lovely, the...

Recently spent a week in this beautiful area, and discovered the Pierhouse one sunny lunchtime. The small patio was a great place to eat and enjoy the views. We found the staff very pleasant and efficient. While we only had a light meal, the food quality was very good and nicely presented. When we visit the area again, Pierhouse will... More

Many thanks for your extremely nice comments about the views, food and service which are greatly appreciated. We pride ourselves on the quality of a 'Pierhouse Experience' but it is the staff who make a hotel. We are extremely fortunate to have retained many of our core local staff who have been with us between 5 and 8 years now... More
