Chef needed retraining or a short stint outside Ireland. Clean happy place, reasonable service. Food was gluggy and had little flavour. Prices were ok, but no value. Only if desperate.

Liz, the owner, runs a great local pub/restaurant/B&B. We had two large dinners there (15+ ppl) and everyone was wowed by the experiences. Then ate there again with my in-laws, and the food and service were top notch.

What can we say. We had roast lamb, mashed, and veggies. Excellent lamb, tender and flavorful. But the best part is the warm welcome and conversation with Liz, the proprietress. She is a gem. Highly recommend The Anvil Bar and Restaurant. A memorable experience. Parking...More

We’ve been in Boolteens for 2 nights and have eaten at the Anvil Bar both nights. Last night - the best fish and chips in Ireland. Tonight, tender and tasty Kerry lamb and Bailey’s cheesecake. Music most nights. Highly recommend!
