Description: The Beach Bar caters for an eclectic mix of visitors all year round. When you walk through the door, you will feel you are in a place that has not changed much over the centuries, yet it has something to suit all tastes. From the thirsty surfers just off the waves, to the tourists seeking out an other-worldly Irish experience, to the young 21 year olds looking for somewhere with character to host their 21st birthday parties, there is a welcome waiting for all. Good food, regular music sessions, draught Guinness and a beer garden with a view are the obvious attractions. More hidden, but can be sensed everywhere in the place, is the history of the Beach bar...This family run bar and restaurant with award winning chef’s owners... The Beach Bar offers a high standard of quality meals simply not to be missed when visiting the region Our ever changing menu includes a wide selection of dishes offering local sourced beef /lamb and seafood... if it’s just a bowl of chowder for the cold surfer to a big family meal you will receive a warm welcome.

Landed at 5pm on a saturday evening and it was pretty quiet. 2 kids got jumbo sausages and chips, mum didn't see any veggie option on the menu but thankfully they had a seperate menu and she wasn't left disappointed (or hungry!). I had 6oz steak sandwich with generous serving of chips and side salad. Add to that 2 pints of heineken, 1 bottle of corona and cordial for the kids, all for 46 euros. We will most certainly be returning.

It can be a little hard to find this place if you do not know the area - that's why we locals love it so! Seriously, I have never known anyone to not receive a warm welcome here - and with the Atlantic ocean just outside the door the warmth is always welcome. Go there for a quiet drink at lunchtime or a bit of a Crack in the evening and enjoy the Guinness - you will get out what you put in. Oh, and the food isn't too bad either.

A short walk back to Aughris and you can have a lovely short walk to Patrick's Well around the corner - watch the Hares run off the rocks across the fields and enjoy the breeze - then return for some more warmth! See you there sometime, maybe.

I wrote a review of the Beach Bar/Aughris House a few moments ago and was then directed to this page for the Beach Bar. Oops!

Anyway I am going to say the same wonderful things as I have said in my other review.

Myself and my partner visited the Beach Bar the Saturday before last after a nice walk on the beach. We had drinks and it was so cosy that we vowed to return last weekend for food.

My other half fished for a while last Saturday off the rocks at Aughris and afterwards we came to the Beach Bar hungry!
I had a HUGE caesar salad with brown bread and himself had the Irish stew.
The food was really tasty, great value, and there was loads of it so we left stuffed!

The waitress was helpful and friendly and the bar and restaurant are so cosy that we didn't want to leave!
The location could not be better, right across from the beach, and I am sure on a stormy night the Beach Bar would be the perfect place to sit in and enjoy some traditional music and a few pints of Guinness!

We will definitely return, sooner rather than later!

A great place for surprising variety of great meals from fish and chips, to bangers and mash sirloin steak,
and even a customized chicken curry that was the best
