“A great family restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012 via mobile

Every time we go to Kinsale we eat in this restaurant and love it. It's a great restaurant for families. Relaxed but with great food and friendly service. We love the fish and steak and the kids love the pasta with homemade sauce and cheese. Would highly recommend it:-)

“Fantastic Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012

We used to try different restaurants every time we came to Kinsale. Now we just go straight to The Shack. Our kids have the same thing every time and talk about it on the drive down ..... so do we! You can't go wrong at The Shack.

Great food at the Shack. The chicken enchiladas (and the vegetarian enchiladas) were brilliant. Thoroughly recommended.

“Don't be fooled by the name, The Shack is really good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2012

Phillip from our B&B recommended this restaurant as a great spot for a family. We halfway expected it to be pretty generic based on the name and the menu in the window seemed very pedestrian.

The menu they gave us at the table was completely different and everything that made its way to our table was just awesome.

The Shack is fantastic!

“Friendly Service and Fantastic Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2012

We stopped in for dinner on a whim and couldn't have been more pleased. The service was fast and friendly and the food was great. We particularly enjoyed the chef's Hake fish special. Definitely worth a stop for a good meal in a casual and relaxed atmosphere. Cheers!
