Restaurant standard food in lovely pub setting. Very friendly staff, great craft beer selection. Local produce on a long and varied menu. Something for everyone...a fish lovers paradise but my favourite is the chicken stir-fry...amazing

On a couple of days away we managed to have three meals here. We had great service and really excellent fresh local food. The monk fish curry and fish pie were firm favorites. The deli is a great addition and we brought home some great salad dressings.

Wonderful food, particularly their chowder, always superb. They have expanded the business since my last visit too so more space for our usual large party. Love the place 😀.

This is the perfect place to have dinner. Lovely atmosphere, young and friendly staff, local beers, great seafood. When we arrived it was very busy and we had to wait quite a lot of time sitting at the bar sipping a pint of beer but it was worth the wait. I had the seafood plate and my husband fish and... More

Had lunch here with family and tried the 'world famous chowder' which was excellent...in the main good value but 27 euro for crab claws for lunch we felt was a bit excessive....other 5 dishes were good value.....staff were good and service was efficient so well worth a try if in the area

Had specifically planned to end up our day touring Loop Head at Long Dock as I'd heard much about it. Well..we were very disappointed. Our three main dishes were all over cooked and made the fish..mackerel, sole and plaice ... all rather tasteless. We did mention it as the plates were cleared, and while we got an apology, that doesn't... More

Having visited Kilkee regularly in my teens, never visited Carrigaholt. On this occasion being in Kilkee for a weekend and The Long Dock being recommended, we were not disappointed. In fact this is probably one of the best bar/restaurants in the west of Ireland and is up there as one of the best meals I've had. Carrigaholt is a small... More

The Long Dock is definitely one of the best pub/restaurants in the west of Ireland. It has a great local feel and atmosphere, a cosy fireplace, lovely staff and great food. Iv been going here for years and it never disappoints. Since they have opened the shop and cafe area out the back it has opened the place up. Great... More

After the Dolphin watch, we were very excited to head along to this restaurant. We had heard great things about it. We turned up with our three young boys. In fairness, the restaurant was busy and had been for sometime. However, there were plenty of tables available and the food looked amazing. However, the hostess on seeing us enter with... More
