We didn't have a reservation, but were on the early side of the evening and they were able to seat us. My husband and son enjoyed the mussels and lobster while I had a lovely vegetarian plate. Everything was delicious and the service was wonderful.

Food was phenomenal. I highly recommend going here. It was worth the two day wait to get in. Can’t wait to go back!!! This was the tuna appetizer and the hake main course. Delicious

My wife and I dined at this restaurant in August 2018. Reservations are almost compulsory during the tourist season. The waiter was exceptional and the food was superb. Highest recommendation.

If you're in Dingle and like seafood you must go to Out of the Blue. It's not fancy but the food is so good. Try the black sole if it's on the menu.

After a day driving the Slea head drive, we were in need of some food. Out Of The Blue was suggested to us. I had the fish chowder and it was delicious! Full of large chunks of fish. The atmosphere was fun.

Enjoyed a delicious meal here with a charming view by candlelight, overlooking the harbor. Strongly recommend making reservations as we saw them turn several patrons away due to being booked out for the evening, and we were visiting “off-season.” The muscles were the highlight of...More
