The Lobster Bar pushes all the right buttons, and delivers a great, authentic Ring of Kerry experience.
James Doyle and his family made the move to Waterville in search of the perfect work-life balance, but we are betting that the success of The Lobster means Mr Doyle is likely to be working harder than ever. Mr Doyle is ambitious and passionate about hospitality, and his determination has re-birthed this iconic bar on the Ring of Kerry, with its magnificent lobster sign. He has done it by offering true hospitality, and soulful cooking that hits the spot: a great seafood chowder; poached lobster with garlic butter; their signature seafood pie; nice old-fashioned bacon and cabbage with parsley sauce; a proper apple tart. Nice drinks, sweet-natured service and good music at the weekends seals the deal for every traveller.
