“Very good pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

We had a really great time here as the staff were very friendly and chatty. The food was good pub food and I would recommend it but the main attraction is really the people.

“Wow what an amazing meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We ate on Sunday evening in the Corner Stone in Lahinch and felt I had to write about our amazing meal, the beef fillet was mouthwatering and cooked exactly to my liking, it was just perfect as was the service and ambience. The bass was equaly as good. We will definitely be back!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Great casual bar food. The place was full the night we were there...midweek...which is always a good sign as it was after the summer season

“Disgusted”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Cork couple in lahinche for a weekend. Friday night looking good, so we decided to eat at the corner stone, Saturday evening for some drinks and to view the munster game which they put on willingly. 6pm had some drinks, ordered some food at half time. Just relaxing after our meal, when approached by staff to vacate our table to let people who just arrive to eat. Made feel like criminals by owner and staff when questioned re same. BAD EXPERIENCE. In business my self.

Dear Tripadvisor Member
Your experience with us was a little bit confusing . thankfully weekends are still busy in Lahinch and with this we try to turn over tables as quickly as possible for food and your were politely asked to move at 9 pm to the bar counter seats to finish your drink. you declined and that was ok. We did not mean to upset you as your in the business yourself we thought you would understand the queue was building up.
We try our best to keep all our customers happy and in your case we are sorry you did feel we you recieved the best service.

Kind Regards
John Ahern

“After a round of golf .. some Irish food .. pub style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

You are dining in a pub and taking the full Irish experience.. This is ideal for a group on a golf tour.. nothing fancy but solid tasty food at excellent prices. After taking on the challenges of Lahinch golf course some solid Irish food was required and the Cornor Stone was Level Par to the task! Good solid Irish food served with a friendly Irish welcome.

I had the Mussels followed by bacon and cabbage and while served in a pub environment the food was of a good quality and very good value for money.My playing partners had steaks and they looked good too.

I will be back to Lahinch and will revisit the Corner Stone again.
