Very enjoyable one night stay and some great craic with landlady. Handy overnighter if touring area including the peninsulas. Food was all you could wish for in this sort of establishment (or actually better) Room had double plus single beds which suited us fine. All clean and as good again as could expect in such an inn.

I was initially a bit wary as we had booked a room here in a crunch seeing that our preferred option had sold out and that this place looked to be in the middle of nowhere. But am I ever glad that we did choose The Anvil! You could not ask for better service, food, nor a location from which... More

We stayed here for one night prior to our flight out of Kerry airport. It was clean, family friendly and affordable, only about a 15 minute drive to the airport. Plenty of locals to welcome you. The only disadvantage was the televisions were small, but the rooms were a great size and bathrooms were remodeled .

The roast beef cooked by Joe was delicious and ably served by Eimear. Internet problems caused some difficulty with credit card transactions but she remained calm and methodical and smiling! Thanks to Liz for her passionate recommendation to do the Slea Head Drive around the Dingle Peninsula. It was brilliant.

Can't say enough good things about the Anvil to do it justice, over the course of a couple of years I've had dozen of delicious meals from an ever changing and varied menu, the staff are friendly and take very good care of visitors even at the busiest of times and the layout of the bar/restaurant is both comfortable and...

Lovely little spot with clean, warm rooms. The staff are incredibly friendly and very accomodating. I had a bruised rib at the time and they went out of their way to make my stay comfortable. Definitely worth checking out if you are in the area.

Stopped off at the Anvil Bar on our way to the Dingle Penninsular. Saw the sign for live music and didnt get any further... Lovely welcome from Liz and her family considering we arrived quite late for food. Michael had the stuffed lamb which was more than worthy of Christmas lunch, whilst l had the local fish and chips which... More
