my husband and I went to Dingle as part of our Honeymoon. We loved the little town and we loved this restaurant! The seafood was amazing. It was our favorite restaurant of our trip. We would go back in a heartbeat if we ever make it back over to Ireland!

Out of the Blue is my favourite restaurant in Dingle & that's no mean feat given the competition! We've been going there for years & have never once had anything but excellent food & fantastic service, from Neasa & Triona in particular. I can highly recommend this restaurant.

The only downside to our experience was a young family with 5 (yes, 5) kids under the age of 12 who were out of control during the entire meal... We felt the staff could have... More

The food was delicious! My friend cannot have gluten and they said they could accommodate any dish which was fabulous. We walked in Saturday, but they were fully booked, but they got us a reservation for Sunday AND called other restaurants for us to make sure we found a reservation for Saturday night as well.

Thank Mer H
