Bridie the hostess made sure we were well cared for. Awesome seafood with delicous crab meat and crab claws as appetizers shared between the five of us, so good we order extra. Our etrees varied from more crab claws, fresh hake and morkfish cooked with chilis and without to a seafood platter. We sampled each others dishes and every dish was delicious with the hake just edging out the others.
Bridie made sure we just made the final ferry back to Valentia well fed and very content!

on a fine sunny day, which thankfully today was, we located the point which is well signposted a few miles outside Cahersiveen, itself a pleasant town with many restaurants, by the ferry to Valencia island. the view from where we sat was attractive and peaceful.watching the small ferry journey between the island and the mainland. a short hop.
The menu was simple and short with basically only fish and salad available. my wife went for the hake and salad and a glass of the house white, I ordered the hot and cold seafood plate, hake, crab, prawns and smoked salmon accompanied with a small salad and a basket brown bread. with a pint of Guinness. the meal cost €38 and was delicious,
definitely worth the extra few miles, would go again if I'm in the area, would recommend to fish lovers,

bar/restaurant was comfortable with pleasant friendly staff in a beautiful location with parking facility.

To be able to sit outside in warm sunshine in mid September is surely luck, to be able to do this and eat the most glorious salmon, crab, prawns and hake is more down to the fantastic fish that The Point serves. The menu is simple and to the point , excuse the pun. if you don't like fish then drive on. This Bar serves the most amazing seafood you will taste on this west coast of Ireland. Throw in the view and the fact that the staff are really laid back and very flexible on their serving times, you have a great mix. We sat outside, not once but twice, basking in the heat and watching the ferry carry its load to Venetia island for hours.Although their board said 'stop serving food at 3pm' we saw people arrive soon after 3pm who were not turned away. Bless the staff, they were still going at it well after 3.30, call it a canny wish to make more money - I sincerely believe they just do first class Customer Service !

As the title suggests the seafood in the Point is well worth the trip off the N70.
We tend to have lunch here often, a simple, but very filling "Fresh Crab Sandwich". It is always very tasty, & filling, especially if touring.
Staff are very friendly and helpful
Don't drive past the Point without sampling it's delights.
