“A good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

The food was very good! My wife had prawns and pasta and I had pan fried Hake and both were excellent. The cost was for the area on the value side and the service was also great. We would highly recomend eating here.

“Two nights in a row”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

We are finishing our stay in Kinsale. Last night we ate at The Shack and thoroughly enjoyed our food. The hake was delicious. When trying to decide where to eat tonight we opted for returning to The Shack. I had their vegetable soup and chicken salad. The rest of our party had the burgers. All aw great including the warm brownies with chocolate sauce and ice cream. We would eat there again if we were going to be in Kinsale another night.

“Unpretentious and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

I had the hake. I had never heard of that fish before: now I'll look for it at other places. The family members I was with all had burgers. No complaints from anyone and chips to spare!

The food in The Shack was delicious and affordable. We were greeted warmly and the food was served very quickly. The pan fried hake was excellent.
