FOOD & DRINK

A Seafront Bar

With the very best of Irish cuisine

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 snacks.

Bookings for our terrace are not available at this time and we will be operating on a walk-in basis only. Please note that although we try to accommodate everyone, availability is not guaranteed. Please sign up to our newsletter for all updates.

RELAXED SEASIDE 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.

Our menus offer a wide selection of local meat, vegetable 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.
