The Restaurant

Ciaran Kelly


Ciarán, our restaurant manager, has opened restaurants all around the world from Singapore and Dubai to New York and Las Vegas just to name a few. He has heaps of knowledge and experience, just the man for the job! Ciarán has relocated in the beautiful West Cork and is very enthusiastic about our first season at the Whale's Tail.

Robert Lynch


Robert is a Clonakilty native with a lot of local knowledge and community spirit. You can always expect service with a smile from Robert when you visit. According to himself he is the epitome of Irish charm, I guess we would have to agree with him though!

Carolyn Boyce


Living as a local in Clonakilty, Carolyn comes to Ireland all the way from Long Island, New York. She has a degree in hospitality and years of experience working at some of the best restaurants Boston and New York City have to offer, bet they’re not as good as the Whale's Tail though! We are delighted and very excited to have her on board here at the Whales Tail.
