I had a prawn salad there during the summer. Truly the best I've had, had same in Dalkey shortly before and Pier Bar outpassed by a long shot. Can't get any fresher than the Pier. €11.00 plus in Pier - €17 Dalkey. Wonderful value.

Came back to the Pier Bar after a few years away. Bar owner was not friendly at all. Seemed to not care if we were there or not. Obviously it made no difference if we were there or not. Won't go back. They probably won't...More

I found myself getting fish and chips often while in Ireland - why not when the fish was freshly caught that morning? The fish here was HUGE - and wonderful!

The staff is friendly and they serve a very good fish (fished locally) and chips (home made), and watching sports events (gaelic football).

Had a lovely homemade apple pie dessert and coffee at The Pier Bar. Friendly atmosphere, live local Irish music, friendly waitress. Nice ending to a peaceful Sunday in Cleggan. Worth a visit.

The Pier Bar, in the heart of Connemara,Cleggan, located right on the pier that acts as the port to Inis Bofin. We are a family run business with the desire to serve GREAT FOOD and all kinds of drink, local and craft beers, Favourites, wines, minerals, juices and even the odd cocktail special! But most importantly to have a really wonderful time, weather that be relaxing in the sun in our patio area, listening to Traditional Irish Music live in the bar or mingling with the locals to get a true experience of a real Irish Pub.
