You can't afford to pass this place by!

First trip to Ireland and stayed for 3 nights, first night we ate here and we both said it was probably the best meal we had ever had, sea bass and the salmon from the woodburner were perfect. Very reasonably priced and a brilliant atmosphere, made to feel very relaxed. The next night we tried... read more

Great bar and entertaining staff led by Willie Gregg. Sample the Guinness and have Willie introduce you to the whiskeys of Bushmills.

Absolutely fantastic bar with unrivalled hospitality and craic provided by Willie Gregg and his team. This remains a firm favourite with all the family and a memorable introduction to the north coast for any visiting friends or relatives. You're guaranteed a warm welcome and fantastic service...and maybe an impromptu sing-song!

Fantastic atmosphere, great views, and a great pint of Guinness. What more could you want from a bar. I would definitely visit again!

A rather disappointing evening in the Harbour Bar Thursday 28/01/16 found the staff member on the bar quite abrupt and unhelpful. Requested an alternative to tobacco onions as I am unable to eat this sort of food at present due to esophagus problem - was met by a swift "no" and receive a rather empty looking plate with chicken breast...

Being having a pint in here for 35 years!! Not a day to sit outside on the bench so the snug beckoned. First class pint of Guinness. Great fire and craic.

Depending on when you visit this bar can be nice and quiet or hiving with activity - either way you're guaranteed a great night! Staff are friendly and helpful, drinks range is fantastic and can be accompanied by some great food options! A must visit when at the north coast!

Visited this bar having been for dinner in the bistro upstairs and thought it would be a pleasant way to finish our glasses of wine and the evening. We were not disappointed. The bar is separated into two areas and is small but cosy. We got a seat, near the fire and just people watched for an hour or so.... More
