After playing a round of golf at Ballybunion, our bus driver suggested this restaurant for dinner. We got there in time for the early bird special and got a 3 course meal for 23 Euro. Our meals were huge and delicious, the service was great and quick. Would eat here again if ever in the region.

Martina the Proprietor was on hand to make us feel welcome and to ensure we were served with a drink while we perused the extensive menu .. Which was as tempting as previously..once again... More

Had no booking, but secured a table for an hour in which time we had a delicious three-course meal(Early-Bird). Food and service was of a very high standard. Chef came out to meet us. Was recommended by our host at The Tides Guesthouse and I have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

While staying at The Tides Guesthouse in Ballybunion, Ireland, our host recommended the Promenade Restaurant. We are so glad he did!! They have a great "Early Bird" special if you want a bargain. We missed the special by only a few minutes, but we are glad we stayed! Our meal was delicious, and the homemade desserts were yummy! The chef... More

My husband and I stayed in Ballybunion for 5 nights, along with our daughter, her husband and our granddaughter. We dined at the Promenade twice during our stay. Let me begin by saying that Irish food is very heavy compared to what we are used to and I eat a vegetarian diet at home. We were pleasantly surprised with the... More

Met the chef and got exactly what we wanted. And the shrimp and chicken pasta wasn't on the menu. It is pricey but worth it. Service excellent. It does get crowded on the weekend so make a reservation or come early.

As a family, we dined on the early bird menu, it was delicious and so reasonably priced. There was no shortage of food, the chef even invited us to taste his fresh cheesecake, which was really lovely. We had a lovely window seat with a sea view. The waitress kept everything topped up and really looked after us all well.

Good food for an affordable price. Very friendly staff. I ate the duck and it was the best I have had in a long time.

Nice modern looking place, however, tables were not clean, food was undercooked (chicken was still VERY pink). Overall mediocre at best. When we didn't finish our meal, the hostess and chef were quite offended and put off by us. They didn't offer to remove the item from our bill either. Would not recommend.
