Really loved the food in boathouse. Excellent and fitted in with the fact that we were glamping in Dromquinna. Very busy so you would need to book.

My husband loved this restaurant above all the restaurants we had visited in Kenmare. Staff were lovely and the view and atmosphere were excellent. Expensive as we had 3 children with us and a bottle of wine. The wine was the same wine that the had in the shop in Dromquinna and was double the price and a bit more. Disappointed with that.

However, food excellent and view fab.

Ate at this beautiful restaurant overlooking the inlet. The sun was setting and we had a fantastic seat outside. We arrived just after 9, but the staff was so kind to seat and serve us still! The food was so reasonably priced and was delicious!!

Have been looking forward to trying this and it certainly didn't disappoint ! Amazing food, service and location. Calamari fresh and succulent, Steaks cooked to a tee, puddings not only fun and quirky, but every bit as good as they look ! All this and the water lapping at the door with sun shimmering ( today at least ! ) worth every penny. What a treat. We'll be back. Nice one the Brennan's !

What else could you wish for..?! From the moment we arrived (large party of 15) we were looked after by all the staff. They put tables together for us outside on the patio and we had a fantastic lunch. We were very lucky that the sun was shining and the view over the bay was exceptional. Food was excellent esp. the brown bread! Service was faultless. We all had something different and no complaints. We will definitely be returning. Thanks for a memorable lunch.
