Possibly the best crab claws around, generous portion, huge claws( thanks to the local fishermen who sell their catch to the bar. You'd be pushed to get better claws on the West coast, and I've never had any comparable on the East coast). These were...More

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.

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.
