“One of our favorite rainy days in Ireland”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

My husband Kevin and I found ourselves in Sneem one rainy afternoon. After walking around the town, we decided it was time to take shelter, have some lunch and a pint. The Blue Bull looked like a pub up our alley so we ventured in for some fish and chips. The afternoon became one of our most memorable pub visits during our trip to Ireland. Collen and her 3 children were amazing hosts and we felt as though we made some new friends with the patrons as well. Kevin has worn Connie's donated hat several times this winter in Aspen!! We have friends visiting Ireland next month and have insisted they stop in Sneem to see Colleen and the crew. Hopefully it will be another rainy random day at the pub that turns into a very fond memory:)

“Great Food & Athmosphere”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

This was a lovely Pub Restaurant in quaint village of Sneem. We had a table close by the open lit fire. The food and athmosphere was great and we got chance to play pool out the back of the Pub. It was highly recommended by Athos from Eclipse Adventure and he was spot on. Would really recommend this to anyone who is down in this direction.

“Ridiculous prices!”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

We stopped for lunch on a coach tour and could not help but feel gouged!!! I had a bowl of chowder which was actually the size of a cup and could not find one piece of seafood in it. It tasted good but for 5.50 euro I expected more.

“Bad Service at the Blue Bull”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We stopped her for lunch on a recommendation fro9m our tour guide. Apparently, it was a bad day for them. Our guide called ahead to let them know we were coming but the service was entirely too slow. The staff were very rude and impatient with our group. The food was okay but nothing special. I would never return here to eat.
