“Great Food and Service”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

This well renovated restaurant offers a mainly seafood menu. The atmosphere is welcoming and vibrant. The decor is fresh and modern with live piano music, wheather you like it or not. The food was very good however, the tempura prawns were NOT in a tempura batter. They shared the same thick beer batter as the fish and chips. This is an unforgivable misrepresentation. For this blatant failing - one black mark. Otherwise a good meal.

17 of us ate here on Saturday 3rd August - great food (I had steak and lobster which was delicious); also great service topped off by a sing along to finish off the evening!
I didn't stay here, just ate.

Just stayed in the Marine Links Hotel for the weekend as a group of 16 golfers. Everyone really enjoyed the trip and thought the food was first class and excellent value. Compliments to the chef and also the friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended for any golf groups. Everything you could want is here.

The restaurant has been beautifully upgraded with an amazing view of the sea. The staff was well experienced and friendly. Every seafood on the menu is the freshest catch of the day. Food was beyond excellent which includes the starters, main course and deserts. Best part is the week special which comes at a great deal that includes a bottle of wine. I'll enjoy going back for another delicious meal in the future.

We had stayed at the Marine Links sixteen years ago and had great memories of it! Just recently returned and were not disappointed. They have updated the lobby/restaurant area and it looks great. The rooms were nice and reportedly are being updated soon. More importantly, the staff couldn't have been nicer. They are very accommodating and gave us great tips on directions, etc! We highly recommend the Marine Links and will stop back next time in Ireland.
There is a new fitness center around the corner that we didn't have time to try out.
Also, if you are a guest and he's not in town, ask to see the Tom Watson room!

Room Tip: If you have large or heavy bags, try to get a room on the second floor rather than the third, no ele...
