During the summer season, to avoid disappointment, please ensure that you make your table reservation as early as possible and state your prefer seating area. Although we endeavour to make every effort  to accommodate customers preferences, however, reservation for tables with views cannot be guaranteed.

We are happy to have you but we want to ensure the best possible service for everyone, therefore, during busy season, we may close for food service between 5-6pm, this allows the kitchen to prepare for a la carte dinner. To avoid disappointment, if you plan to arrive at Smugglers Creek Inn between 5-6pm, please call 071 9852367 in advance to confirm that food is still being served. Since Summer 2014 we have introduced a Bar Snack Menu which starts around 5pm which can fill the gap between 5-6pm.

Many of our customers enjoy themselves so much…..They have chosen to have Smugglers Creek Inn to host their private events, so we will be closed to the public on those dates. We will try our best to always inform you of upcoming private event closures in advance.

Thank you again for your continue support throughout the years! 2015 will continue to be a busy one for Smugglers Creek Inn!!
