I can not recommend this pub enough if you're in the area, I visit Scannells every time I'm in clonakilty. The bar is great fun all year round: have a beer in the fabulous garden in summer, or a coffee by the fire in winter. The food is delicious with all allergies and requirements catered for. The haddock pakoras or... More

We shared 3 main courses yesterday because really we wanted everything ( there were 2 of us) Slow cooked beef ,... More

Nice atmosphere. Delicious lunch menu with good locally sourced ingredients. Friendly staff and prompt service. I would visit again. Sandwiches are very good value but I do think more salad options would be nice. Perhaps one or two at a mid price option as opposed to a large main.

Any Clonakilty visit is inevitably connected with at least one visit to Scannells:) Since months I had been looking forward to a lovely bowl of Scannells seafood chowder but alas, when I looked in the menu, there was no seafood chowder to be had, as there were no crab toes (never knew they had any). I cried heavily but only... More

Visit here from time to time for lunch and can't fault it . Simply the best lunch served in Clonakilty & the staff to match. This is not pub grub , this is restaurant quality lunch served at very reasonable prices . Not a bad place for a few pints either :-) The beer garden could do with upgrading but... More

Food, atmosphere and staff, Scannell's have got it right. It seems like the owners really have put a lot of love into this bar. Buzzing and busy on Friday afternoon at about 3pm, but still, we as non-locals, were greeted as we walked in and told to take a seat they were still serving lunch. Delicious options at €13, then...

Myself and my partner popped in here for a late lunch on Tuesday. I had the steak bap which was delicious and the chips were my favourite - handcut and seasoned perfectly accompanied with a scrumcious garlic dip. My boyfriend had the curry which he really enjoyed and was extremely tasty. The barman was very friendly and attentive also. The... More

Called in for lunch which we were really impressed with it. They only serve until 4 o clock but there is a lovely atmosphere and food is fabulous. Will definitely return.

A friend recommended Scannell's for a chat - very inviting and comfortable (especially if you can get a seat near the fire!) Good beer, friendly folk.
