We've eaten twice at Con's this holiday - great, generous food portions - straightforward fare that is well presented and served with a smile. Very handy whilst watching the children on the Star Outdoors activity day just below.

Nice food, friendly staff. Plenty of space. Good selection of food to choose from, and it seems to all be good! Nobody in our group had any complaints at all. The kids were delighted with the indoor play space, such a rarity in Ireland (not sure why!).

Just had a delicious meal. 10 of us and no complaints only that we are too full. I went for the chicken pascal, very filling with a generous side of potatoes and veg. Others had the roast lamb, hake, scampi, chicken burger and chicken baguette. Everything cooked perfectly. Michelle and her team were very friendly and took time to talk... More

We stopped here several times whilst touring the Beara Peninsular area. Good Value for money. Very friendly staff and spotless. Coffee & Tea (Plus the usual cream teas/cakes) were good. A bit of a walk for less abled folk but the views are superb. Next door (Same Firm) there is a fish factory that processes local trawler catches. You can... More

We called in for lunch following a boat trip on Kenmare bay. We were very pleasantly surprised. Really good food. Massive portions, we could have shared main courses. Excellent fresh scampi.

Seriously, this place was absolutely wonderful! My friend and I went kayaking in the afternoon and ate here when we were done. This was seriously the best food we had on our whole trip while in Ireland and the prices are very reasonable. Our meal came with so much that we could have shared one meal- so come hungry! This...

We stopped in here for lunch after having gotten lost. We seemed to do that quite a bit, and it usually turned out well. This was no exception. We both had the Wild Atlantic Way seafood chowder, and it was amazing! I've had a fair amount of chowder over the years, and this was among the best ever. Michelle took... More

We were trying to follow a hand-drawn map provided by our innkeeper from Gleninchaquin Park on a round-a-bout trip back to Kenmare proper, when we chanced upon this place, and decided to stop for lunch. As we were there in early May, the area was not crowded at all, but one could ascertain that it would be quite a popular... More
