Slightly crazy, but lots of fun, a bustling water-front restaurant with great service and fair process. Don't miss it

We stopped here for a pleasant lunch with a view of the harbor. I ate light as I wanted to stop for some ice cream afterwards. I had the warm goat cheese sandwich which was excellent. The guy sitting at the table next to us had the Atlantic Seafood Platter that was huge. I was amazed someone could eat that... More

This restaurant has a great location opposite the harbour, we all had different meals, all were very nice, I particularly like the Atlantic platter , it is a nice place for those (odd) people who do not want to eat in a pub, it is a proper restaurant. Friendly staff, nice relaxed atmosphere. Suitable for children and families. I do... More

We went here for New Year's Eve 2016 and the food was excellent from start to finish with great portions, hot food and friendly staff. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed and the tables were well spaced apart. Highly recommended and we'll be back next time!

Being a kind of frequent visitor to Ireland, I always make my "eating out" plan in advance. The Boatyard restaurant has been a steady point during my gastro tours in the last 5 years. They serve all kinds of fresh seafood perfectly prepared in a cosy seaview restaurant. Its worth visiting!!!!!

Enjoyed a terrific lunch here with the local beer called Tom Crean. The owner Gavin O"Grady sat and conversed with us and really made this a fun time. Nice glass canopy area looking out over the bay on a beautiful day makes this a highly recommended stop if you are in Dingle.

My desire here would be to give a rating between average and very good. We were a bit disappointed when we first arrived and the first thing our waiter told us was what was not available from the menu. Despite that we stayed and had a very good meal (fish and chips for one, tempura battered scampi for the other).... More

I would eat here again if it was cheaper. Far too pricey compared to what you can eat, for the same money, elsewhere in Dingle. Tempura prawns were made fresh but a crab cake I got for starters was microwaved..... and was only barely warm on one side. Fast service and friendly staff though..
