All four of us had a starter and main course! From the choice of wine to the final bite of food, it was only delicious! Very comfortable surroundings and beautiful views out of the windows toward Valentina Island.

A fabulous seafood restaurant and a must visit when in Valentia, the short ferry hop (€2 return on foot) just adds to the experience. Excellent Covid precautions, best we've come across and very safe. 5 Stars@

We really enjoyed eating at O’Neills. The food was excellent and a credit to Bridie and her team. We have eaten here three times over the past two weeks and can’t wait to go back again. We look forward to our next visit to The Point

Enjoyed a lovely lunch with a dear friend at The Point last week. We were greeted with such warmth by Bridie which always makes you feel special. The food was exceptional and well presented. During our meal we were asked by both Bridie and AJ if everything was okay and yet we had plenty of privacy during our meal. The hake dish was so fresh and tasty. Again, an excellent meal and fantastic service. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Nice ambience and decor. Warm and inviting and rustic. Food was decent.
Unfortunately service was not great. We were not given menus and upon asking after about 10 minutes we were told that due to COVID we should use our phones.
I think they are trying to be safe but just tell people this or have it on your website. Also many older people may not have smart phones so I am not sure no menus would suit those people.
Also knives and glassware were brought out for us to take off the tray ourselves. Who put them on the tray and the knives and forks into the packets they were in. Sometimes we can all go a bit crazy with this stuff and its just illogical.
We ordered hot port to finish but after 20 minutes it never arrived. We decided to pay and leave but the older lady, probably the owner, gave it to us for free.
She was trying her best and very nice but her staff to me seem like they need to just wake up and be more engaged and sadly its so common now in many restaurants. Staff always seem distracted, not interested, unengagaged, or worse, posing, and like you are impinging on their time.
This restaurant could be really nice if the front of house the staff upped their game a bit.

Although it’s a different time we’re living in we felt a bit abandoned by the staff at O’Neill’s, except of course our lovely lady server, without her I think we would’ve left. After being shown to our table by a young male server we where left to contemplate what happens next, after a fashion he shouted from the bar “you’re meant to look at your menus on your phone”, an embarrassing few minutes later the lovely lady arrived. He had put us beside a door which was opened every few seconds and closed with a resounding bang, we asked to be moved and where told all tables [including it seems the two empty ones by the window] were full. All in all the food was simple and cooked very well.

Lovey food and excellent service with lovely sea views. The only reason we didn’t give it five stars was because they don’t do deserts. Otherwise it was all good
