Had a very nice evening, with a few Guiness pints and some nice food. The scallops and black pudding were lovely, as were the mussels my partner had. Brown bread was a highlight for us and this evening ranked really well on our trip.

Great atmosphere, fabulous rack of lamb, great music and very attentive staff. After a round of golf it is the best place in Ballybunyon.

Lovely meal. Great service. Had been recommended by a friend to try duck. Disappointed as there was no duck left.. but had fillet. Cooked blue... absolutely perfect. Chips to die for. Friend had fish and chips. Beautiful and fresh. Lovely pinot to wash it down with. Reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere.
