Outstanding fare in a small town near Killarney. Best fish & chips ever. We travelled all over the south of Ireland & found the best food & the friendliest people in small out of the way places like this establishment as well as Murphys pub next door

Came in to have a quick pint and met the charming bartender , told us about how they have rooms for rent above the bar if at any time we needed a stay. Heard good things about the food and will come back for dinner!

Twelve of us arrived without notice and we were treated to lovely food, without delay. We all enjoyed it so much that we went back the second night, we were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and made us feel at home. Highly recommended.
