    Fantastic location, right on the seafront at the end of an enormous beach and about 20 walk out of Waterville. The rooms are clean, tidy with wonderful views. The downside was a tiny bathroom with a lack of power to the shower.

    Thank you for visiting the Smugglers Inn and for your review. Plans are being made to renovate/upgrade the guest accommodation in the near future and bathroom size and power to the showers will be addressed.

    Came early, before 6:30p and enjoyed the prix fixe meal: starter, entree, and dessert. Hubbie had Hake which was "good". Sis and I both had chicken, both good. Meringues were the dessert winners - Sis and Hubbie both loved theirs. We topped of the meal...More

    You will struggle to find a more beautiful view or location for a pub/restaurant. Totally stunning. The food is great too, so its a winning combination. Loved it and would definitely recommend to anyone.

    Dined here recently enjoy famille. Service average. Food mediocre. A party of approx 15 golfers entered the restaurant, embarrassing to see how the waiting staff fawned all over them. Regrettably our table did not merit the same treatment. Just a bit disappointing.

    Fantastic views across the bay, room was functional but bland, the bar was ok but not an extensive choice and the food was high quality but expensive for dinner and not a hearty breakfast. Good for a night stopover only.
