“Food excellent but service a little lacking”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Enjoyed a good standard of meal in this seafront restaurant on a busy Sunday evening for them. A little short staffed to say the least, but they coped more or less with a great cheerfulness that took away a bit from the 40 minute wait for our main courses.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Not great, not bad. Nice staff. Food was definitely nothing special. Bare minimum really of what should be expected.

“Fantastic hotel”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

Myself nd my husband were celebrating our 27th wedding anniversary nd we loved Ballybunion nd we bought the groupon voucher a few days before we checked in.
We checked in for one night Sunday yesterday 27/7/14.
I doubled parked outside the hotel as husband went in to see was ter a car park he came out and ter was a car park across from the hotel so we parked up and we proceeded to the hotel with our bags. We checked in nd ter was a lovely girl who couldn't help us more and gave us the key to room 10. We had a fab view of beech as well as funfair nd it brought our memories back to when our kids wEre young so refreshing. We went out and came back nd had a fabulous four course dinner nd wine nd I couldn't fault any of the hotel or the restaurant nd it was so nice I have already booked to go back in august we hAd such a great time. Like to thank Martina nd her staff was excellent services

“Early bird deal a con”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Sign outside restaurant and menus said 3 courses for 2 people and a bottle of wine €50. Seems extremely reasonable yes?
Turns out your 3rd course is just tea or coffee. Only to be told this as the kids were ordering their desserts. Which in fairness the children's menu is very good value , I think it was €10.
Food was lovely if a little on the plain side.
The girls serving were lovely but should have told us about the fact we had to choose between starter and dessert. Still I believe that should be on the menu.
It really put a downer on what should have been a lovely family dinner.
