I chuckled at the review at the bottom that was so dramatic and desperate to keep people away from here... Nice try! This place is actually nice looking inside and has a fun atmosphere with a very long bar and pool, etc. We went on a Friday night to nearly a packed house! My husband had a burger and fries, and I had the fish and chips. Everything was pretty tasty and I would suggest eating here if you are staying in Ballinskellig. It is closer than going all the way to Portmagee, etc. and pretty good prices too.

Excellent pub with access to Ballinskelligs beach, great for children. Food is pub grub, but good enough. Great place to balance child and adult food/drink/fun balance

Recently ate here and was very happy with our find. We had the fish and chips, and the toasted sandwich. All were timely served and tasty. The pub is decorated in a traditional Irish pub fashion, the type most tourist enjoy and appreciate when visiting Ireland. The views are unbelievable, if it wasn't so windy we would have loved to hang out on the patio for a bit. If your looking for a relaxing atmosphere, traditional foods, and an amazing view, stop here on your next visit to Ballinskelligs!

I agree with the review that says the reviewer Bryno sounds like he has a vested interest in other restaurants/hotels in the area. Either that or he was having a really bad day when he wrote the review because it sounds more like a review that is being paid for.

A trip to Ireland led us to this fantastic pub/restaurant. The setting is extraordinary--situated on a beautiful landscape of lush green lawn with sweeping views of Ballinskelligs bay. The food was perfect and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. After dinner, the place became alive with traditional Irish music.

A great dinner, Irish music and dancing in an exquisite setting coupled with excellent service makes me long to return to this gem.

we ate here whilst staying in ballinskelligs. It is a large pub which obvioulsy caters for many, but on the night we went it was fairly quiet. we had a window seat, and the view would have been spectacular had it not been for the rain. The friendly bar staff looked after us well. The food is not extravagent, but is is very good and freshly cooked. I had the best fish and chips I had had in ages.
