Host Jim McCarthy is often found in the early evening leaning over the red half door of this low, cabinlike stone building. The exterior gives little hint of the spacious, cleverly lighted dining room within, nor of the beautiful pair of windows at the back that frame lovely views of Dingle Harbor's trawler fleet. Nautical artifacts complement the rusty-red walls and matching tablecloths. The atmosphere is pleasantly informal, but both food and service are polished and
professional. Top choices include Dingle Bay crabmeat salad with ginger mayonnaise and mango salsa, or rack of Kerry mountain lamb with redcurrant and rosemary jus. Finish the meal with a selection of Irish cheeses, served with a glass of port, or a homemade apple and clove tartlet with ginger-nut crumble.

You can reserve ahead of time by email. Lovely room, we were welcomed warmly for my birthday dinner. The salad with apples wrapped in bacon was fantastic as was the beef tenderloin and roasted chicken. A very good selection of wine. The dessert really topped off a great dinner. 3 kinds of ice cream with hot caramel topping for MDH. For me, a hot apple tart with rosemary ice cream and happy birthday written in chocolate on the wide rim of
the plate. I never would have thought rosemary ice cream would be good, but it blew me away. Thank you Chart House for a memorable birthday!

Food, ambience and service could not be faulted by any of the 10 diners in our party. We shall all certainly return.
