Stayed in Helen’s Bar in Kilmackillogue on the Beara Penninsula for 2 nights B & B. First night lovely meal on Pier in the most beautiful of locations. . 2nd night weather drove us indoors but great atmosphere inside. The seafood was generous and delicious.
Accommodation is simple and inexpensive. Good breakfasts.
My Australian friends judged this the most memorable of all the places they stayed in during an 8-day tour of the south of Ireland.

Typical country pub in an isolated village on the Beara peninsula. Good beer and sometimes good food. We had salmon hat was a bit dry but the prawn cocktail entree was fabulous. Prices were excellent however and service great.

Great spot on a remote stretch of coast - the tables are on the quay in summer and in Autumn. It's all very serene and peaceful and the little pub does some top-rate seafood dishes in a down to earth fashion. The crab sandwiches are overfilled and very fresh. Looking at other tables, the monkfish and haddock (?) goujons looked absolutely delicious. Don't expect slick service - it's a remote little Irish inn but we had one of the best, freshest and tastiest meals here in all Ireland ....and the Guinness is superb!

The hottest September Sunday and we rocked up here … parked our VW van in the carpark and found a table on the pier. The place was going like a fair . Live music when we arrived and food served until about 9pm .
The food was super fresh and tasty.
The staff work very hard on what was a shift from hell busy .
