We stopped at the restaurant along our route of the Ring of Kerry. They had the best bisque I've eaten in a long time. I highly recommend it if you are in the area. It is worth the time and effort to find it on the Main Street.

Sat down at the bar and was warmly greeted by Mags the Manager. Had a couple drinks and due to the smell coning from the kitchen and the specials for the night decided to stay for dinner. Oh how we were rewarded! We had the crab and prawn bisque and the baked crab with crab claws special. Fantastic! We have... More

We enjoyed delicious crab open sandwiches at QCs. We just called in for a very late lunch and Kate kindly offered us crab on lovely brown bread. Every mouthful was delightful - we were hungry after meandering around the Ring of Kerry via Ballinaskellig. The dinner menu sounded wonderful - we hope to be back to sample it some day.... More

Spent an evening here with friends recently. The food was ok and a bit overpriced for what you get, menu slightly limited in reality. Two pies, two fish, calamari or steak. Finally when the lattes arrived out after the meal the glasses were only half filled. We did query this and were told it's how the machine makes them. Overall... More

This was the nicest fish I have eaten in any restaurant. I am coeliac and had no issues with any of the food I was served. Staff are knowledgeable in allergens and very helpful.

Thank goodness we had booked a heads as the restaurant was very busy. We had a great meal. The fish was prepared and cook just right. There was a lot of attention to detail in the decorations and design which we appreciated. The staff were all chatty, approachable friendly and engaging. All in all we had a great time.

Wonderful food. Friendly, attentive staff. Beautiful rooms, crisp white linen and great beds. If you're looking for a unique foodie weekend with five star accommodation then look no further. Work up an appetite along the stunning coastline and mountains of The Ring of Kerry and Valentia. This is a gem on the Wild Atlantic Way.

This restaurant is seriously good. Fabulous seafood, simply but very inventively cooked. Your crab bisque deserves to be served up to the Gods! If I could, I would have it as my last supper. Mags is a star front of house. Thank you for making us so happy!
