We have been coming to Ireland for the past 10 years and every year it gets better. We had stayed here in the past and always had a great time.This trip was a larger group than usual (16 guys) and I was a little nervous about what effect we would have on the "New" Reastraunt and Lounge Area.
Derek and the Staff were incredible with every thing from check-in till check out. "Try to organize 16 golfing guys to sit down for Dinner and have everyone happy" People always ask me hows the food in Ireland ? The Fish is so fresh and the Steaks melted in your mouth.
Of course,when in Ireland you have to sing a few songs and you do not want to be the 1st to go to bed? The town also has so much to do with the Beach right across the street and many Pubs and other things to do. Can't wait to go back !!

Room Tip: All Rooms have Ocean View.Fitness center and pool not on site but you do have access to local Fitnes...

This well renovated restaurant offers a mainly seafood menu. The atmosphere is welcoming and vibrant. The decor is fresh and modern with live piano music, wheather you like it or not. The food was very good however, the tempura prawns were NOT in a tempura batter. They shared the same thick beer batter as the fish and chips. This is an unforgivable misrepresentation. For this blatant failing - one black mark. Otherwise a good meal.

17 of us ate here on Saturday 3rd August - great food (I had steak and lobster which was delicious); also great service topped off by a sing along to finish off the evening!
I didn't stay here, just ate.

Just stayed in the Marine Links Hotel for the weekend as a group of 16 golfers. Everyone really enjoyed the trip and thought the food was first class and excellent value. Compliments to the chef and also the friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended for any golf groups. Everything you could want is here.

The restaurant has been beautifully upgraded with an amazing view of the sea. The staff was well experienced and friendly. Every seafood on the menu is the freshest catch of the day. Food was beyond excellent which includes the starters, main course and deserts. Best part is the week special which comes at a great deal that includes a bottle of wine. I'll enjoy going back for another delicious meal in the future.
