I called in here with a friend during the bluegrass festival. the town was very busy with festival goers and this was one of the quieter places, and had a more mature crowd. The barman made me a hot port has i had got cold from being outside and even though the place was busy he didnt mind going to the extra trouble to make it for me. We got a seat and sat down to listen to the brilliant local musicians playing in the bar. On a visit to the toilet, there was no long ques and the toilets where very well maintained especially during a busy time.
would definately call to this place again to sample their food as judging by their cleanliness, and friendly staff I'm sure the food wont let them down.

A real gem in Dunmore, we have been here many times during holidays and it is always great, the food is amazing especially the seafood options and the specials, the prices are reasonable and everything we have tried here is top class, the restaurant in the evening is always busy with a buzzing atmosphere, kids are most welcome and they have movie nights and arts and crafts for them out the back during the week, I would highly recommend this place, just make sure and make a reservation before planning a visit as it is always busy, you wont be disappointed.

Had lunch here recently. Food and service was good but thought it was expensive. Group of five including two children. We had a shared starter of Nachos. Kids don't generally like ordering off the kids menu anymore so one had a starter as a main course while the other had a chicken burger. One of the adults also had a starter as a main course. The other two adults had a main course. With one glass of wine and three soft drinks, no deserts or coffees the whole thing came to just a few Euros short of 100 Euros. Far too much for a lunch!

Hi, congratulations on your first review on trip advisor,

I'm am glad you thought the food and service was good.

Thanks for calling into the spinnaker, maybe next time please try our special value lunch menu priced at €12.95pp to include a main course and a drink of your choice, Its very popular.

Yes when kids start to grow up and move on to a la carte menu , the costs to rise a little.

The spinnaker aways try's to offer good value / which is reflective of previous reviews... its rare people comment on price at the spinnaker.

Thanks

NIall

Arrived there on a Thursday evening just before 9.30 the area seemed to be buzzing but unfortunately after a long travel day to meet family a lot of pubs and restaurants had stopped serving food at 9, as we were making our way to grab some takeaway up the road we came across this little gem. Not only were they still serving we were given a great welcome and seated at a lovely table in the middle of all the atmosphere. There was very little wait for the food, which was served piping hot and a generous amount too. The wait staff were very friendly and made sure we had enough and were happy with our food and drinks. There was a great variety on the menu and everyone was delighted with what they got. If I had to be picky the only thing I could say is that the toilets could do with an update. Overall I was delighted to find this place and would highly recommend it!
