It was surprisingly difficult to find child friendly places to eat in Bantry. Then I remembered a place I visited with family over five years back and went back to check it out.

Found the place crowded with locals, staff very friendly. Found both entree ok, a bit bland. Both dishes were missing a little something, we had the Irish Stew and Clam Chowder.
