“A good walk up the hill”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

At the end of the harbour and behind Man Fridays, The Spaniards is a cosy typical irish pub, if you are lucky you will hear Irish music here, but beware, some nights there is a charge to get in. Worth a visit at lunchtime for a quick pint on your walk around the Scillys.

“Cracking Place”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

This is one of the best places in Kinsale. It has a bar and a quirky restaurant. You have to go outside to find the restrooms, how quaint is that? The bar is lively, cosy, charming. It is a great place for a night out. They have seating outside, so you could drink al fresco if the weather permitted!

“Excellent Pub”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

great atmosphere. Super staff. They are fast, so helpful, so on the job and are only too glad to accommodate your needs. The setting is wonderful and it's no surprize that it's so busy, all the time. In fact that is a good indication of its reputation. Great food too & great variety.

“Take a step back in time”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

What a great place. We went on a friend's recommendation and we were happy we did. I felt like I giant in such a small place but not too small for a great lunch. The fish and chips were out of this world!

“quite good with nice service”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

we stopped in here for a quick bite and i had the prawns with cocktails sauce(they were tiny but quite good) and fried mushrooms; my boyfriend had the chowder which was also pretty good-the place was very cool inside and nice and low key.the service was also really good. all in all not stellar but still above average adn i would return.
