“Beautiful Seafood”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

My family and I were in Ireland on holiday and were recommended this restaurant by the skipper of the Seafari. I had the Seafood Salad and it was wonderful. So much seafood, prawns, mussels, crab, smoked salmon and all of it lovely. My husband had the scampi and the quality of lovly and the portion size very generous. The staff were so welcoming and helpful. We would recommend this to anyone visiting or living in the are.

“Welcoming and delicious”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

We arrived tired, hungry, and frazzled after our original lodging lost our reservation. Our new hostess recommended Con's which was just next door, and it was exactly what we needed. We had to wait a bit because a coach tour had just arrived, but the servers made sure the beer and gin never ran out and the food was well worth the wait. Get the fish soup! The fish and chips are great, too; very fresh and fried just right.

Con's has quite a business. In addition to the restaurant, it has mini golf, paintball, cruises on the bay, ice cream, archery...all kinds of amusements. We took their wildlife cruise and enjoyed seeing seals and just breathing in the lovely salt air.

“Fishtastic and mini golf as well”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Brought 2 of my friends and their families for a cruise on the Star of the Sea. The sea air had everyone in a hungry mood and so went to Cons with 6 adults and 9 children. The staff were great and organised 2 tables straight away.

We ordered food for the kids first. The kids choices are priced at €4.50 and comprise of the usual fare of burger / sausage / chicken nuggets / fish gougons & chips. The staff kindly organised pasta for some of the kids which was not on the menu. Once they had their food eaten they were sent off with ice cream to the playground and were given clubs to play mini golf.

The playground and the mini golf are a tremendous bonus for any family meal outing. It keeps the kids entertained while the adults can take it easy.

For the adults there was a varied section of food with fish being the major theme. I highly recommend any of the fish dishes. They are cooked simply with all the texture of the fish preserved. None of the main course fish dishes were more than €13.

As it turned into a lovely sunny evening we brought some takeaway coffees down to the seat by the play ground and watched the children playing and took in a few holes of mini golf ourselves.

All told we spent a grand 3 hours at Cons / playground / mini golf. I could not recommend Cons highly enough for a family outing.

“Lovely restaurant in a lovely location.”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Stopped here for lunch on a day trip to Kenmare. As the weather was fabulous we had the pleasure of sitting out on the lovely outdoor balcony overlooking the sea. Staff are friendly and take time out to chat to the customers. Lunch was the best we'd had all week during our stay in Kerry. Very reasonably priced too. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
