Stayed in the Glengarriff Park Hotel next door. After a couple of long days it was nice each night to pop next door with no effort for a drink by the open fire before heading up to the room. It's a great advantage being able to walk from the hotel to the pub without going outside.

We had a lovely evening meal here a good choice of food reasonably priced. There is a thai influence in the cooking.

Myself and my partner went to MacCarthy's for a few drinks and something to eat on Sat 23rd Oct. it is a newish pub but has an old Irish pub style and feel to it. Very nice staff and the food was excellent.

One thing put me off... on one visit a staff member, looked like a Manager came into the bar. He pushed past two bar staff and was very rude to them. He was wearing... More

A bustling place when we went. It monkfish in red curry was a bit tasteless to our Asian tastebuds. Other dishes were OK./good. Very good service though. Everything was hot and all the vegetables were just boiled. Easy to find and some parking along the main road. Surprisingly, someone was reading zodiac guide to successful relationships & careers.
