We have a home about 30 mins away from TLD and take friends there on a regular occasion as the food and atmosphere is excellent. In an area where the food movement is growing, this is a wonderful spot. Yes there is sometimes a wait but go for a drink down the street or take in the harbour or castle...... More

We were seated quickly & given menus - but that was the last we saw of any speed. We were seated for about 15 minutes before our order was taken, even though a waiter passed us about 10 times. It wasn't overly busy the day we were there for lunch. For starters we got mussels and chicken wings. The mussels... More

A little off the beaten track but a great pub and food. Very popular with locals. Slightly odd experience of having to order our drinks and food sequentially rather than at the same time? The waitress wouldn't take a food order until she had returned with our drinks!

We were advised to go there, and im glad we took the advice. Genuine irish atmosphere, warm and cozy interior. The service was excellent and the food was fantastic. I cant forget the mussels (probably the best i ever tasted, big bucket of fresh mussels, could probably eat them without stop) and the seafood chowder, the crabs and prawns and... More

Situated at the edge of the Loop Head pensinsula in the fishing village of Carrigaholt The Long Dock makes for a perfect stop. The location that is great for cycling or hiking or just to take a scenic drive along the rugged coastline of the Loop Head Pensinsula. The proprietors are part of a movement promoting the culinary attributes of... More

We had just arrived in the area and needed to get something to eat. Having been to the Longdock before we decided to go back in. Four of us had the roast lamb and very delicious it was. A very nice eating and drinking establishment. We were later told that there was a gift shop at the rear but never... More

If you visit the neighbourhood of Kilkee / Kilrush hop in at "the long dock". Great seafood in a small local village. Don't miss this one !!!

Ate at the long dock twice recently and on both occasions the service was really poor. The food is nice and if you like seafood you won't be disappointed just be ready for a long wait for staff to take your order. Neither day I was there was particularly busy but still the young wait staff struggled to work efficiently,... More
