On a clear summer's day, when the bushes in the lanes around Dingle Bay are ablaze with fuchsia and the brightly coloured fishing boats cluster around the harbour, there's
no finer place to stop for a pint of Guiness and the biggest platter of seafood you've ever seen than Denis O'Connor's Half Door Restaurant.
While Denis cooks, his wife Teresa welcomes guests, and if you drop by at a quiet moment, three year old Conor the elder of their two children, might introduce you to
his "friends" - the lobsters swimming in a tank in a corner of the cosy restaurant.
On one famous occassion Conor decided to take his friends for a walk around Dingle. " He was halfway up the street with a lobster in each hand before anyone realised what was happening,"Denis laughs.

Each morning local fishermen deliver their catch through the stable door from which the restaurant takes its name. There may be John Dory,brill,plaice,lobster,crayfish,
prawns and crab - all of which will be prepared with the lightest of touches, complimented with the simplest yet most imaginative of suces, and served with crumbly irish soda bread. During the summer months every plate
is decorated with some of the famous deep pink fuchsia
blooms. This mouthwatering menu has stayed the same for the four years that the O'Connors have been in charge, except for the evening "specials ", which change daily.
"It is the kind of food we love," says Denis - " and people keep coming back for more".
