If you want an Irish pub in Kinsale that has a decent restaurant, good pints and a friendly welcoming atmosphere this is the spot. This family run establishment ticks all the boxes.

Shur .. everybody loves this place. It's the essence of Kinsale. Our dinner for 16 was an utter blast of quality - according to everybody. The band later were terrif - understated and brilliant in the same breath..

Enjoyed a late dinner here with friends and particularly like the salmon, vegetables, and potatoes! Very classy and nice place with cozy atmosphere. After arriving in Kinsale late in the evening, it was great to find a restaurant that was open after 9 pm.

We arrived without a reservation and were seated immediately. Great seafood specials and drinks...there was live music in the bar, so that was an added treat. We had the bread pudding for dessert and it was delicious!

Excellent lunchtime soup and sandwich. Reasonable prices, charming interior and prompt service. Judging by fellow customers, others were equally content. Take time to view some of the wall displays.

Service was prompt, food tasty but Menu was a bit lacking, ordered a side of garlic bread also which came on a brown multiseed ciabatta, absolutely horrible!

Food was awesome. Try the Kinsale Black beer! We went here two nights in a row because the service, atmosphere, food and pints were phenomenal. Great for friends, couples and families.

Called in bank holiday Monday. Had a lovely lunch. A very good menu. But we both had the lamb.Really good vegetables. Love the veg. Only room for one dessert to share. Couldn't manage a whole one each. A cup of coffee and we were ready...More
