A labour of family love over 40 years in Tralee.


Originally opened in 1976 by Jerry & Mary O'Sullivan. The Tankard has been under the stewardship of the O'Sullivan Family now for 40 years and is now owned & run by their Sons Enda & Adrian, with brother Ian creating fabulous dishes in the kitchen. At the Tankard we love to work with local Fresh Seafood but we also offer plenty of non- seafood options including duckling, Hereford fillet or striploin of beef and Kerry rack of lamb, seafood is undoubtedly the star here. Much of it is sourced through the owners’ connections with the local fishing community, and the choices range from scallops or seafood mornay and saute crab claws to lobsters fresh from the tank.

A Taste of Kerry

As a 'Taste Kerry' selected Restaurant we endeavour to bring you the very best produce Kerry has to offer. The Tankard boasts wonderful sea and mountain views from the restaurant, with its outside deck and a path down to the sea. We look forward to welcoming you to our little piece of Kerry.
