Fodor's Review

One of Ireland's original bar-restaurants, this is a famous Kinsale institution known for its generous portions of local steak, lamb, duck, and fresh seafood. Choose from the inexpensive daily specials in the busy bar, or have a more leisurely meal among the mahogany tables and dark-red decor of the somewhat baronial restaurant. With seafood this fresh, the preparation is kept simple: Kinsale oysters au naturel or crab claws tossed in garlic butter to start, followed by 10 ounces of prime beef fillet or medallions of monkfish in a scallion, ginger, and lime sauce. Classic homemade desserts (profiteroles, crème brûlée) are substantial and the Irish coffee is renowned.
