“Delicious food, beautiful setting and great service”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

The Brick House is situated at the harbour in the seaside town of Skerries, Co Dublin. During good weather you can sit outside on the terrace and watch the activity all around you. The tapas menu isn't large but it covers the most common tapa dishes. The portions are large enough to share, as you'd hope with a tapa, and are very tasty. For those nervous of ordering from a Spanish menu, fear not, the details are in English. The a la carte menu is fairly extensive. The food was nicely presented and we couldn't fault it. One of our (small) guests chose a tapa as a starter and a tapa with side order of hand cut, delicious, chips as a main course showing that the menu is flexible. Unfortunately the dessert menu didn't meet our tastes, so we did without, but others might find something suitable. I have been recommending this restaurant to people since the first of my three visits.

“Great combination”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Dropped into this place while out visiting Skerries one evening and strolling along the Harbour Road. Doesn't seem to have been open long but we were very pleased. We shared a fish carpaccio with watermelon slices and a lemon ginger dressing which was light and delicious. She had the fish and chips for a main course, which wasn't the usual slab of unidentified fishmeat in a brick of batter, but a lovely fillet in a super-delicate batter, along with chips, tartar suauce and very nice mushy peas. I had the burger which was generously sized and good quality, meaty rather than bready, well seasoned and in a light bun which didn't distract from the main event. We sat upstairs by the window and had a real treat of a view as the sun went down over the harbour. I'd say that it would be even better in winter when the wind and rain are beating off the glass. Service was excellent, friendly, knowledgeable about the menu, and we weren't waiting at all. Apart from the bit of chat chat we really didn't notice the service, which is meant as a compliment!

All in all, well impressed, have recommended it and will continue to do so, and we'll defintiely be back.

“Very pleasant restaurant with delicious food.”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We had a very nice meal here last night- it was my 1st visit and I was pleasantly surprised. We had a choice of going for either an A la carte or tapas menu. We opted for the a la carte menu as it was a very cold, wet & windy night - we weren't disappointed with a wide variety to select from. The food was piping hot and service was efficient but not too fast. The atmosphere was really relaxed and chilled out but was quite chilly - they could have some heat on. I would like to visit this place again and try the tapas - they seemed to be very popular.
The only disappointment was the lack of choice of desserts, but I hear that the meringues are excellent.

“Worst ever”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

What seemed a nice place turned out to be easy the worst place I have dined to date..
The food is minimal and comparable to a crappy pub grub only at ridiculous prices..
The plate arrived with 8 chunky chips stacked up and a tasteless burger..
Simple case of rip off..I expected to pay more for good food but instead payed more for basic cuisine..would avoid and walk past

“Wunderbar!!!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Delicious tapas and gorgeous views !
One of the few restaurants to sit and enjoy the stunning views in the Skerries. We ate in The Brick House during a family holiday in Ireland and we were not disappointed.
It was a lovely day in Skerries so we decided to order some tapas and take a seat at the front patio of the restaurant.
We just had crispy calamari, fresh gambas shrimps and charcutier board that was perfect for sharing. Everything tasted excellent. Great choice with lots of seafood prepared so it melts in your mouth.
We couldn't ask for more - fantastic food, wonderful service, great wines and lovely location!
