Owners Bríd and Mike are really lovely people. Very relaxed pace... More

Visited the schooner bar today while touring around east cork.The food was delicious and it was served with a smile.One thing that marred my visit was the smell in the toilets and i must point out the cleaning of same left a lot to be desired.Maybe a fragrant candle would help.

A charming nice friendly place. Great bar menu and the food was fresh and beautifully cooked. The owners were so nice. Family run place in the beautiful village of Ballycotton. The place is spotless. The bar has live music some nights.
