My husband and I ended up here by accident. We were staying at the Trump Hotel in Doonbeg and decided to venture out for a drive around the peninsula. The first pub we stopped at for dinner wasn't serving food but kindly recommended The Long Dock. And it turned out to be a great recommendation. The atmosphere was wonderful with... More

This is my friends local restaurant and she was keen for me to try it. She recommended the seafood chowder and homemade soda bread and it didn't disappoint. Followed by homemade crumble it was a lovely meal washed down with a pint of Guinness. A very friendly and busy place, I wish I lived nearer.

I'm very, very jealous of the locals in and around Carrigaholt. Visiting a friend in nearby Querrin, we were treated to an amazing experience here at The Long Dock that really left me feeling great. The food was absolutely amazing, best meal I had in Ireland by far. The crab claws were to die for, the wings, not being fried,... More

Visited during Christmas week with family, it was busy on the day but not too crazy. Food is excellent and if you love seafood then you have to visit. Great staff also.

Situated on the loop head peninsula I recently had lunch in the long dock after exploring the local area. The pub is warm and cosy with a fire lighting in the corner. They really emphasise the local seafood here although the menu boasted other options for meat lovers. The chowder had an excellent depth of flavour and their grilled fish... More
