    Two of us had the rack of lamb and it was delicious. The potions were generous. We would definitely go again.

    The food was beyond an average review. My husband had monkfish & scallops which he said was by far one of the best dishes he has ever eaten. I had halibut which was done to perfection My sister had rack of lamb with fresh peas & my brother in law had sirloin steak with peppercorn sauce. Out of this world food. Make an early reservation. Ours was for 5 pm. It was nice & quiet but we finished around 7 pm & the noise level significantly increased. But it's got 3 small rooms for dining not bad for Ireland. Absolutely loved it.

    Excellent fresh local seafood. As a tourist you’re always taking a chance on restaurants so it’s nice to get a really good one. This was good on all levels. Nice Dingle G and T to start, wonderful local oysters followed by the freshest of local mussels in a simple white wine and cream broth. Very pleased to see a nice primitivo from Italy on the list. Too full for dessert but shared a lemony custardy thing anyway which turned out to be a perfect ending. Service was excellent and we were not rushed in the least. Highly recommended

    Wonderful food in a very nice setting, the home made bread is one of the best I've ever tasted. The service staff was friendly and did their job well, sometimes there were rather long waiting times though (the restaurant was very full).

    Delicious Delicious Delicious. Great value for beautifully cooked and presented fresh food. Eileen offered great wine recommendations and cocktails were also available on request. The staff were polite and attentive. We ordered a variety of different dishes as we had a party of 6 with a fussy toddler included and every single meal was mouth watering. It was the most enjoyable evening out we had in such a long time and we will definitely be returning.

    Dining at Half Door is a must when in Dingle! Our experience was amazing. To start, the restaurant itself is lovely. The staff was wonderful and the food was delicious. We started with the blue cheese in phyllo, which is a must order. They have a great wine list and we had a great champagne. We ordered the Dingle bay lobster and rack of lamb as our mains (both were amazing) and it came with multiple delicious preparations of potatoes. We ended our meal with a delightful lemon posset with fresh strawberries. Overall we had a wonderful experience dining at Half Door is an absolute must!
