Eat at the Stonehouse Café & Restaurant

Amazing food in an Amazing Building & location

Refuel with a stop at the Stonehouse Café and Restaurant with its unique stone roof connecting it to the Fort of Dún Beag and the Beehive Huts. Enjoy traditional Irish cuisine at this beautiful family-run café and restaurant.

The cuisine at the Stonehouse could be best described as Bistro mixed with Irish Traditional. Here you will find exciting, mouth-watering dishes made from the finest local produce.

The menu features fresh, locally caught fish; delicious West Kerry meats, and a host of other exciting options. Home-made soups, Seasonal Salad, Goat’s Cheese Salad, Fresh Crab Salad, and Local Smoked Salmon offer the perfect meal.

The Stonehouse offers desserts such as Warm Apple Pie, Homemade Rhubarb and Custard Crumble, Chocolate Malteaser Cake with a hint of Baileys, Irish Ice-Creams, and Baileys Cheesecake with fresh cream. Speciality and Irish Coffees, Guinness (on draught straight from the barrel), and a wonderful selection of crisp whites and decadent red wines provide the perfect accompaniment to an amazing meal – overlooking some of the world’s most spectacular scenery!

The Stonehouse is also the ideal place to drop in for a spot of afternoon tea or coffee as you journey around Slea-Head – their homemade scones, fresh bread, and cakes are worth the visit!

Delicious Take Away Coffees & Irish Coffees always available to go.
