Dingle’s Best Pubs, Restaurants and Cafes


In Dingle Goat Street Cafe Good for snacks, sandwiches, eat in or take out
Cassidy’s on the Pier Open for breakfast, lunch and tasty bites all day.The Chart House Best restaurant in Dingle? Certainly some think so. Winner of many awards including Munster Chef of the Year just recently. Advance booking pretty much essential.
Doyle’s Seafood Restaurant Cosy old style bar/restaurant with enviable reputation for great seafood. One of the best.
The Half Door More excellent seafood at this relaxing place. The seafood platters are locally famous. Good value three course pre 6.30 special available.
Lord Baker’s Restaurant & Bar Decent pub grub in the bar, more civilized dining in the rear restaurant. Great spot for Sunday lunch, but very popular so book in advance.
Out of the Blue If you try only one seafood restaurant in Dingle, try this one.
Novecento Possibly not what you came to Dingle looking for, but sometimes an authentic tasty Italian meal is just what a body needs. You will find it here.

Around Dingle 

The Stone House, opposite Gallarus Oratory near Smerwick HarbourInspired by the Oratory, this restaurant housed in a stone-roofed building serves both lunch and dinner in unique intimate surroundings. Next time I’m in the area the Stone House is top of my list. An Italian couple we met claimed it was possibly the best restaurant they ever had the pleasure of dining in. Gorman’s Clifftop House & Restaurant, An Feothanach, near Smerwick Harbour Superbsea views with spectacular sunsets make this an idyllic dining spot.There is also a very comfortable and homely guesthouse attached. The Old Pier, Ballydavid Overlookingthe Atlantic Ocean and Blasket Islands, this place is deservedlypopular for serving good food at reasonable prices with a greatatmosphere to boot. B&B attached. The Phoenix (7km west of Castlemaine on the R561 coastal road to Dingle An unusual yet charming restaurant with rambling gardens and indoor and outdoor dining options. Emphasis is on organic foods much of it from their own garden. The Phoenix also offers B&B and hostel accommodation, chalet and gypsy caravan rental!

Well worth a look.Spillanes, Castlegregory Greatfood in this busy traditional pub in Fahamore at the tip of theMaharees Peninsula north of Castlegregory. Just the spot after a daysurfing.Ned Natterjack’s, Castlegregory Also popular with surfers, Ned’s serves bar food all day, has a beer garden and regular live music.Kruger’s Pub, Dunquin Mighty place to enjoy a cold one on a hot day. Trad session on Sundays, more frequently during the summer.Tigh an tSaorsaigh, Ballyferriter Friendly flagstoned pub with a piano and weekend trad sessions.Tig Bhric, Riasc (on R559, one mile from Ballyferriter) Delightful pub, B&B and shop - though not necessarily in that order - which serves great soup and sandwiches during the day and dinner in the evenings, except Fridays when a traditional music session takes precedence.Tigh TP’s, by the pier at Ballydavid Cosy during the winter, rather splendid in the summer. Just like the whole of the Dingle Peninsula really.
