The meal was only OK and I don't know why but I expected more. We had the fish and chips -why is there an obsession with serving food on wooden boards with a seperate pot of chips? If you're going to serve food on a board please renew the boards regularly as the one I got looked as though it... More

Although I was initially disappointed to find that the Irish stew was not available, as unexpected coach parties had eaten there earlier, Michael who served us was very welcoming and helpful.

Traditional pub with a large dining room. Food was totally the right stuff after a long hiking day. Staff is very helpful, competent and friendly. Would definitely go there again!

Visited The Blue Bull whilst doing the Ring of Kerrya few days ago. Great little place - good trad Irish Stew and locally made Gubbeen sausages. Extremely welcoming and friendly staff - especially Mike who looked after us and made us smile with a quip about his sausages ! Worth a visit !

Great service. Very friendly stuff. Clean toilets. And the food. All of us chose fish and chips. Chips and salad were delicious but fish was a bit too small and without any herbs. But generally can recommend this restaurant.

Looking for local atmosphere and GREAT food, and Blue Bull delivered. The salads were big and outstanding - my friend and I had the fried goat cheese and beet salad with was out is this world. Caesar salad was fresh, crunchy and delicious. Mussels were among the tastiest I've ever had. Highly recommend!
