“Great meal, great service, great atmosphere...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

We got here late on a July evening while the sun was fading. We got a great table in a room across from where the entertainers were playing. The service was very engaging, efficient, and helpful with several special requests. It had a very family friendly feel but more upscale than some other places we had been-in a nice way. We had a variety of meals that we shared-and everyone was quite pleased. The seafood chowder and scallops were very good.

“Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

We had a 3 day visit and ended up eating dinner here twice . There is not a lot of choices in town but this was our favorite, the food was fine but all the cute girls had warm smiles and made you feel welcome making it special. It is worth a try if you are in the area.

“Has Disimproved”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

I have eaten in Mc Munns on previous occasions times when I was in Ballybunion, but found this time that the standard has gone down. Prices are okay but food has definitely disimproved. Service okay. Restaurant very dull decor could do with a face lift. Window seating great if you can get one.

“Well Worth a Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013

Three of us had dinner in McMunns in the last few days and it was really nice. The restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who had been before so we decided to try it while in Ballybunion. For Starters we had Mussels and also Goats Cheese salad and they were presented very well and tasted very nice. For our Mains we all had a different Fish dish. The fish dishes were cooked beautifully and the fish itself was very fresh. When the bill arrived there was some extra dishes on it that we didn't have but I think it was a genuine mistake and was quickly rectified.

I would eat here again if I was in the area and I would highly recommend.
