Warm, friendly (100% Covid friendly) with a crackling fire and great service. Huge portions of top quality food - The lightly fried calamari with a squeeze of lemon was fantastic - I would go back just to have this! My wife had some delicious fish...cakes with just the right amount of heat and sweetness. Whole Sole and a duo of Scallops and Hake hit the spot. Fantastic Irish seafood presented simply - there were non seafood options but this is Dingle - eat seafood whenever you can. A full house midweek with the owner Pat keeping a close eye on all proceedings. One to book and enjoyMore

Had Dinner last Sunday September 13th - Had to Book in advance Due to Covid 19 and we were Really Looking Forward to our Meal. Arrived and Ordered our Meal - One Starter and 2 Main Courses - Ordered a Glass of Rose Wine (...None Available as it wasn't Delivered we were told ) Our 2 Main Course's were delivered and they had forgotten that we ordered a Starter - Main Course's Returned and Starter Arrived 5 Minutes later ( Thai Fish Cakes ) Steak & Fish - Fish was Extremely oily and although it is supposed to be a little oily this was too much - Also Fish was quite hard to get off the Bone - Steak was a little tough with a lot of Fat on it. We decided to skip the Dessert - Don't get me wrong the meal was OK but we were expecting so much more for the Price we paid.More

Recommended by friends and wasn’t let down. Nicest calamari starter ever tasted. Risotto my wife had was unreal. I had hake and scallops for mains. Lovely local pale ale served is tasty too.

A friend and me walked the Dingle Way and then spent a few days in Dingle to relax. We ate out most nights but the dinner at Fenton's was just the perfect ending. I was a bit apprehensive as our hiking luggage did not offer...much in the way of elegant apparel but the staff made us feel welcome and cherished in our casual getup. All three courses were fantastic and we had a lovely time. The atmosphere was lovely. Have already thanked my friend who recommended Fenton's and will certainly come back when in Dingle.More

As vegetarians, food in restaurants is often disappointing. Not at Fentons. We sat in the beautiful garden and had the most delicious food I’ve eaten in a long time. Our main courses looked like a work of art! The staff were very friendly and made...a fuss of the kids. I would thoroughly recommend.More

Booked a few days in advance and only available time was 5.45pm. Therefore we were offered an Early Dinner Menu which was absolutely fabulous. Great vegetarian options too. 3 course menu for €30 is incredible value. This was definately our best dining experience in Dingle.
