“Do not order steak!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Oh why oh why can a chef not cook steak? Two of us ordered steak, both cooked differently, but no neither were right, so disappointed. Would not return there.

“Family friendly affordable and tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

On my recent trip to Kerry I stopped for lunch in the lovely village of Sneem, we had lunch in The Blue Bull, a truly gorgeous pub with a lovely outside seating area, I enjoyed mouthwatering monkfish in the sunshine, the children had some goujons and fries and were happy playing in the fresh air while we dined at our leisure,the owner Coleen has a great sense of humour and was a mine of information about the village otherwise known as "The Mantlepiece of Ireland",due to gifts recieved from other countries! Her stories were entertaining and the food was delicous,looking forward to trying her Irish stew the next time I visit. Coleen is a true example of what Irish hospitality is all about, A friend of mine from France found the whole experience wonderful, and the Guinness was excellent

“Lovely food and nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

We had stopped here for a drink the previous week (lovely Guinness) and returned to try out the food - we weren't disappointed as everything was delicious. Their homemade brown bread was lovely - our kids both had mussels and used the bread to dunk in the sauce. Fish and chips was also lovely although the chips were the frozen variety - the prices are high enough to justify fresh chips. Hubby was delighted with his sausage mash and onion gravy - three big meaty sausages and lovely creamy mash. They have a pool table which kept the kids occupied while we relaxed over our drinks. Overall an enjoyable experience.
