When the season quietens this bar is always welcoming with great homemade food available day and evening from soups, sandwiches to fish platters mostly landed on the pier outside. Passing boats, motor homes or just tourists with their dogs call here most days. A few locals and fishermen add to the tales and athmosphere. If your anywhere in the area... More

We went to Crookhaven with some friends who always visit when in West Cork and they recommended O'Sullivans. It looks out on to the harbour and is a simple looking pub on the outside. Inside the welcome is warm and it is popular with locals and tourists. We had the chowder which is excellent with some lovely buttered soda bread... More

Dropped in for lunch - service and food were very good. Location is perfect and when we ate in the bar there are seats outside which must be wonderful on a sunny day. Definitely worth a visit to this very picturesque spot.

A landmark pub in glorious Crookhaven. On a fine day there is nothing to compare to sitting with a pint looking out on the harbour.

The drive to Crookhaven is almost worth it alone. Arriving there, it quickly became apparent that we didn't really have many dining options. The restaurant itself was a little dirty and we were both a little amused as Margaret, local cat we presumed, made her way through the bar eating whatever she could find. Not to be outdone, a dog...

It is in a beautiful and perhaps a bit location overlooking the sea, which makes this place very unique. It offers good seafood at a decent price and the staff is very friendly.

I have been coming to this bar for years mainly because the location is great , the welcome is warm and genuine and the crab sandwich is just perfect after a long walk on the nearby beach. This is a no fuss place that maintains a good standard of food and drink served with a smile. Be sure to call... More

Been coming here for years over the two week summer holidays. Dermot O'Sullivan and his team pump out great pub lunches here and in the evening the atmosphere and the drinking carries on - but no food for supper.

O'Sullivan's Bar is located in the heart of the scenic village of Crookhaven nestled in the Mizen Peninsula of West Cork. The family run bar which overlooks the beauty of Crookhaven harbour prides itself on its friendly atmosphere and great food & drink. Whether seated inside next to the cosy fire on a winter's day or relaxing in the summer sunshine on our tables next to the water, you can expect great friendly service and the finest chowder, soups and freshest range of sandwiches in West Cork.
