We were wandering around north Sligo and we stumbled across this hidden gem, just in time for lunch, it was absolutely delicious, and what a beautiful location, you could go for a walk on the beach before or after food, the food was quirky and so tasty, with plenty of variety, Its off the beaten track but well worth the...

Really busy when we popped in here a couple of weeks back so we had a little wait for a table. Great menu and prompt service, food was lovely, we had the lamb and fish dishes. Love the cosy atmosphere here and being able to go straight onto the beach after for a walk was nice.

Had lunch with family here. The menu is great and reasonably priced. Location is super overlooking the surf. Service is not great. I don't mind slow as we were not rushing but the coffee never came and I had to chase the bill. Oh and the language from other patrons at the bar was foul in front of young children.... More

This is a lovely pub right by the beach. It's a must see. The weather wasn't great when we visited but we still sat outside. Would highly recommend.

If the weather is nice and you can sit out the view of Ben Bulben, Ballysadare Bay and Knocknarea from here is spectacular. This is a well preserved thatched cottage, the bar food is delicious and reasonably priced. We opted for the Seafood Chowder which was among the best we tasted on our trip around Ireland. There is also a... More

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.
