“Yummy home-baked food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We loved their home-made sandwiches (the egg & onion ones especially) and their cakes are all home-made and and there are so many nice ones that its hard to choose. Service was excellent and prices average.

“AVOID!!! Loyal customer for years but will never return again.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Ordered two toasted sandwiches and tea for two. (€20.66 for the pleasure) Eat in the restaurant on a regular basis but will not eat there ever again after today. Sandwiches were tasteless, bread was cheap and tasted of a dirty sandwich maker. Side salad consisted of one salad leaf. Chips were the only ok thing on the plate. Asked the waitress for mustard to be informed they had none?? Hard to believe but to be honest I'd say she was too lazy to look as it was a huge effort for her to even produce a little and I mean tiny pot of ketchup. When asked was everyone ok we replied no and explained our reasons why. They still charged for BOTH uneaten sandwiches AND the two pots of tea. Disgraceful way to treat regulars. Will never return.

“Lunch in Clon!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Gearoidins is located in the centre of Clonakilty town directly across from O’Donovan’s hotel. We visited here on a Saturday aft for lunch while out in West Cork. The selection of fresh sandwiches on the menu is really great. Includes Ummera Smoked Chicken, Gubbeen Ham and other West Cork specialities. Service is friendly and very quick. There is also a very nice selection of home baked cakes on display at the counter. We had one Roast Chicken sandwich and one with the smoke chicken and gherkin with a pesto mayonnaise. Only gripe if I was to go back would probably ask for the sandwiches without butter as they tend to lash on as well as the mayo! Other than that a very cosy well located restaurant worth the visit.

“Fast Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Had a bad time here. A long wait for food and when it did arrive the 'fresh sandwich' was covered in blue fungi. If I had not noticed I would have eaten it!! When I pointed it out, it was quickly removed and replaced by another non-mouldy sandwich. The waitress simply said that I would not be charged, but did not offer much of an apology or explanation. I found it very noisy here and the food is clearly prepared without much attention.
