We called in here on our drive round the Ring of Kerry. The village is busy with visitors and this place was quite full, but we managed to get a seat with a view of the rapids.

The place looked dirty even though the outside looked nice. The food came I had fish and chips it was hot but I don't know if it had been over cooked or re heated but I didn't enjoy it. Very little choice of drinks.

This cafe /restaurant was a pleasant surprise on our way around the Ring of Kerry.

This place was so much fun and the food and drink was some of the best of our Ireland adventures. We sampled, Fish & Chips, Irish beef stew, Full Irish breakfast, and Seafood Chowder and brown bread. All excellent along with the cold local beers. As we waited for our food, the owner stopped by frequently joking and laughing with... More

Sneem is perhaps the best lunch spot for tour bus and tourist alike when taking the Ring of Kerry from Killarney. I've done this a couple of times now, and Sneem seems to be the spot that can handle large quantities of tourists all at once. This was my first time at Breems Riverside Café, and, even though jammed with... More

This family fun bistro serves regular food. My family and I had fish and chips which was very good and good value. Staff are very friendly and attentive. Their lemon meringue is homemade and exceptional, I am told. We will definitely return.
