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.

*Please note that non-resident guests must produce a covid vaccination certificate and photo ID, as per government guidelines.

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.
