Nestled in the beautiful coastal scenery of Waterville, County Kerry, the Smugglers Inn has been a family run business since 1980. Henry Hunt, Chef/Proprietor, prides himself on the variety of delicious locally sourced produce available in his restaurant.
After a day of travelling around we were driving back to waterville and seen the sign for the smugglers inn so we drove round and the setting was amazing and the menu outside said they served bar food and a la carte. So we went in and we hadn't booked so they were very polite in giving us a table then we were moved from one table to another which was fine. When we looked at the menu they had only given us the an a la carte menu as we didn't like anything on it we had to ask could we have the bar menu I dont think it went down to well then as I had just had a stomach operation I asked could I have a childs menu well I felt like a second class citizen it was obvious if u weren't American or didn't order off the a la carte menu u weren't considered at all. When we finished our dinner which was lovely we sat for so long while empty tables were being cleaned and re set even though no more people seemed to be arriving as it was getting late no one came near us to clear our dinner plates away after 40 minutes I asked could we have a dessert menu for my husband I was only wanting a pot of tea as I was full I was so disgusted I just said to my husband let's go give our money to some other establishment were we feel welcome so we asked for the bill and paid and left. I believe near judge its book by its cover we probably have more money than most of the Americans in there. I will not be back. I cant fault the food I give them praise for that but not their hospitality.

Very friendly people. Best Guinness Beef stew of the trip and a pint of Murphy's. Incredible setting with wonderful views. Highly recommended.

On our Ring of Kerry excursion we decided touch at this restaurant because of great reviews. Unhappily, the seafood chowder was thin and short on actual seafood and the steak and Guinness pie distinguished by having a single piece of steak, though the puff pastry was the largest piece ever seen.One of us was reasonably satisfied with the fish and chips

Bar/Restaurant in hotel but open to public
Had dinner here on a sunny sunday evening. Had the seafood platter, really good choice ... it was one of the best I've had. The butlers is a special place. Family run which is evedent in the service. Would highly recommend a viste if your in waterville.

When you first walk in the visuals are not exciting including a huge television (actually all the pubs we visted in Eire were a bit like this), though with good wall decorations, BUT .... don't be put off .... the staff are so friendly and helpful and the food is superb. On the first night I had a seafood platter, a brilliant combination of hot and cold, fish and seafood, whilst my wife had pan fried sole. The sole was so good and perfectly cooked that we went back the next night so I could have the sole, oh and a chowder starter whilst my wife had pan fried turbot or halibut (can't remember). This part of the world seems to specialise in chowder, they were all good yet this was the best; and my wife's fish was, again, perfectly cooked .... damn .... we weren't spending a 3rd night in Waterville else I'd have had to come back. Highly recommended. My wife is mostly vegetarian yet occasionally eats fish .... she liked the vegetarian options .... yet the fish was so good.
