About Us

The Ring Lyne has been open for business for over 125 years. Originally called “The Bridge View” in honour of the small bridge that crosses Caol River in the Chapeltown, it was re-christened The Ring Lyne in the 1960’s in honour of two islanders that were instrumental in securing the bridge that now links Valentia Island to the mainland. As your hosts Anthony, Stephen and Ashling will ensure that you want for nothing, with many years of experience within the catering world. They have taken over the running of this delightful gem of old world hospitality in 2016 and have  turned it into a welcoming home away from home for the weary traveler!

You can join the locals for some lively banter or even a sing song at the bar, or enjoy a quiet meal in the cosy lounge area you may even hear some of the native Irish language used predominately in The Ring Lyne’s Irish corner either way you will leave as a friend as its unique local aspect ensures no one is a stranger here!
