IN LOOK AND FEEL, INSPIRED BY THE OCEAN
The interior is dominated by a curved walnut bar reminiscent of a tall sailing ship, while behind the bar shelves are replicas of grappling hooks used by local fishermen, fashioned from brass hook ends. In winter, a fire burns, creating the intimate, cosy feel of a traditional Irish pub. In summer, the stone terrace hops with diners making the most of our dramatic cliffside perch.
The bar is open seven days a week for lunch, dinner and afternoon tea. Reservations are essential, especially at weekends. This is a bar restaurant popular with locals.
RELAXED ALL-DAY DINING
In our relaxed Bar Restaurant, you will find a menu that is both sophisticated and easygoing — a tribute to the very best of Irish cuisine.
Presided over by CLIFF’s Executive Chef Martijn Kajuiter, the menus offer a wide selection of sandwiches and seafood dishes, including monkfish, Helvick cod, local crab, and chowder.
Rib-eye steaks are meltingly soft, while the desserts are classic Irish comfort food taken to the next level.
