Kate Browne's Pub

Situated on the main road but with parking to the side, this friendly and attractive pub has an old world ambience, with roughly plastered walls and country pine.

The main dining area is a large, bright and airy room with an unusual slate bar and an old solid fuel stove giving it character, while another eating area off the main bar has an inviting open fire which makes guests feel at home.

An interesting and wide ranging menu is offered to suit all tastes, and there's a sense of pride in the ingredients used, many of which are from the locality and diners are referred to the suppliers list on a blackboard behind the bar - where you will also find a range of craft beers and cider stocked, including the local Tom Crean lager, brewed in Dingle.

The restaurant is very popular with families for its relaxed atmosphere, helpful staff and wholesome well-priced food - a special children’s menu is available, along with lighter snacks, sandwiches and desserts.

Well known chef, Helen Vickers, is Head Chef and she has a loyal following. Local seafood features strongly in popular dishes like chowder (with excellent home-baked bread), prawn cocktail made with fresh prawns, (which is too often not the case), and baked mussels, as well as a range of main course fish dishes.This is wholesome fare and the portions are generous .

But you don't need to have a full meal to enjoy a visit to Kate Brownes - a cup of tea beside the fire here can make a very pleasant journey break at quieter times; served by friendly staff, it comes in a china teapot and with some delicious home made biscuits on the side. A real reviver.

Seats 100 (outdoors, 20, private room, 50); food served daily, 12-10pm; house wine €20. Toilets wheelchair accessible; children welcome (high chair, children's menu, baby changing facilities). Closed 25 Dec, Good Fri. Amex, Diners, MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
