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. Reservations are essential, especially at weekends. This is a bar restaurant popular with locals.

Please advise us of any dietary requirements you may have in advance of your stay.
