Visited Dingle at the beginning of December and decided to try this restaurant. It's quite possible to miss as the exterior hasn't gone with all the bells and whistles of other places in town! Interior is nicely decorated and very cosy. The menu is very wide ranging and I have to say the food was amazing. The Starter and main... More

Very nice food, friendly staff, extensive drinks menu. The early bird menu provided loads of choice and great value. All the food was good, particularly recommend the slow braised beef and the fresh seafood. If you have room, really recommend dessert - all the desserts were really high standard and obviously not bought-in.

We were a family group of 6 adults. We opted for the early bird €27 for 2 course menu. Great choice of dishes. We had starters which were all excellent and very well presented. The seafood dishes were delicious. We had mussels, hake, salmon and risotto. The service was very efficient and very nice friendly staff.Would be certain to make... More

We visited Dingle in November so many of the restaurants weren't open and we happily stumbled on Doyle's. Food was excellent. Crab claws were especially good. Service and ambiance was great! Would definitely recommend!

The title is a little bit tongue in cheek. The food was absolutely fantastic. As I understand it though, that can be said of many places in Dingle. But because of the time of year we were there, Doyle's was the only higher-end restaurant open. Most of the town shuts down in the second half of November to get a... More

Doyle's is one of 3 upscale fish houses in Dingle. Just down the hill from Greenmount House. I am sure that during the season reservations are needed. But in Nov. not necessary. Fresh fish (I do mean fresh) Daily specials, good size portions, & attentive service made for a very enjoyable experience. I had Sea Bass, cannot remember what my... More

This is the pick of Dingle's very good restaurants. Food is excellent , seafood especially. It's always busy, but if you go earlier for dinner you get a great deal. Highly recommend! Finish off the night with a trip to one of the nearby pubs for a bit of late night irish music.

I found this restaurant to have a nice ambience, but the food was on the bland side and way overpriced. Would not go back. We spent the same amount of money at Out of the Blue, but got a way better meal with incredibly fresh seafood and lots of great flavor.

Five wonderful meals, the crab claws are gorgeous, had a mixture between us, black sole was top class, I had the lamb shoulder and it was to die for, just melt in your mouth. The service was great and we were not put under pressure for time, just a nice amount left in between courses for a chat and glass... More

I went for the early dinner option from 5 to 7pm for 27 euros for 2 courses. The bread was excellent. A generous slice of treacle soda bread & another of a white bread flavoured with sun dried tomatoes. I had the local crab claws for entree (with a 3 euro surcharge). They came with a garlic butter sauce &... More
