Stopped off for a coffee and a slice of apple tart. Michelle served me. The first thing she brought was a bowl of water for the dog. Sat outside. Great service, lovely coffee and a nice big slice of apple tart, cream and some custard. What more could a man and his dog ask for?

After quite a substantial wait the food arrived and all the Lamb plate was hot with the exception of the Lamb itself. I hate cold food so I sent this back and... More

Lovely dinner at The Bosun, dinner was served in the bar. The food, the welcome and the service was of a very good standard, the early bird menu offered a wide selection and was very keenly priced. Fresh fish always a treat. We enjoyed an unusual choice of wine from the Bekka Valley, Lebanon. Full bodied any suited our palate... More

Excellent spot, spent four nights while attending courses at National Maritime College in Ringaskiddy. Great fried breakfast and food in general. Front rooms have great view of the water. Rooms kept to a very high standard, even got chocolates on the pillows each day. Staff could not have been more helpful.
