DINING IN DINGLE
A selection of restaurants close by accessed by the public footpath which we are more than happy to book for our guests:
The Chart House:
Located less than 5 minutes stroll from Emlagh house, here is what Jim Mc Carthy says if his award winning restaurant & team: At the Chart House we strive to deliver a memorable dining experience, and for our loyal and regular customer each visit to the Chart House needs to be better than the last. Of course, achieving “Best Restaurant in Dingle and Kerry” is about the food, and our Head Chef Noel Enright and his team only source the finest local produce and create menus to reflect what is in season. We firmly believe that when our seafood and meat are prepared and cooked with little fuss and complication and accompanied with appropriate garnish and undertones of exquisite sauces that you have the best result.
Out of The Blue:
This seafood only restaurant is located along the footpath via the waterfront from Emlagh House, five minutes away. Tim Mason & his team have a unique philosophy about what they do:
Everything depends upon the catch of the day and nothing but the best will do. If there’s no fish, the restaurant doesn’t open.The menu, given on blackboards, changes every day offering a huge variety of whatever is available from the boats that morning. Anyone who is lucky enough to get a table in this small casual restaurant can expect seriously delicious seafood cookery
