“A real Irish family pub restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We were staying at a B&B in the Castlegregory area of the Dingle Peninsula and Spillane's was recommended to us for dinner. We loved the friendly pub atmosphere and I had the most delicious local mussels in cream and wine sauce with crusty bread. Just delicious! A great place to spend an evening.

“Great food, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Recently visited the bar, having previously booked for a group of 14. All the food was very good, good sized portions - seafood soup amazing! If you have got the space after finishing your meal, you can even get a very large ice cream cone topped with chocolate flake for just 1.70 euro. Well worth the visit, but need to book as gets very busy. Managed to make a second visit without booking but only for 2 people.

“Lovely restaurant - great seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Busy place so book in advance. Very accommodating though and great food. really lovely mussels and some of the best crab claws ever. Very reasonably priced considering the portion size and quality of the food. Interesting place to sit and eat - lots of stuff to look. Nice outdoor area in the summer. Recommended
