I have often visited here in the summer time, but was pleasantly surprised to find that it serves good quality homemade food all year round. It was much easier to get a seat near the fire this visit and the Chowder and open crab sandwich are a must. Friendly staff with a good range of local beers on offer.

We stopped for lunch, it wasn't on our way, but someone in our previous stop of Baltimore told us it was worth the small detour and it Was! It had wonderful soup and sandwiches. It also had a great view in a unique, tiny village. You also get bragging rights for having a pint at the southernmost pub in Ireland!... More

A old style pub in a beautifully picturesque village, with fantastic seafood, pints and service. I had the crab sandwich with seafood chowder and a craft beer, served outdoors overlooking the bay on a beautiful sunny winters day, heaven on earth.

We ate here for lunch on two consecutive days. As it was off season we were lucky enough to get a seat at the window both days.We have often sat out front on a summer's day and there is always a lovely atmosphere. On our most recent visit we sampled scones with jam and cream, fresh sandwiches, chocolate roulade, chocolate... More

I'm thrilled that I kept driving down to Crookhaven in West Cork. O'Sullivan's was open on a wet and cold winter day. Perfect spot for a pint. Had a bite too. The people that worked there were lovely. The cat, there's dogs. It's just the best!

This was our second visit to O'Sullivan's. It is the perfect spot to sit on a picnic bench, enjoy some soup and a pint, and take in the salt air! There is nothing like relaxing at this 'end of the earth' type spot and soaking it in. We loved it!

When the season quietens this bar is always welcoming with great homemade food available day and evening from soups, sandwiches to fish platters mostly landed on the pier outside. Passing boats, motor homes or just tourists with their dogs call here most days. A few locals and fishermen add to the tales and athmosphere. If your anywhere in the area... More

We went to Crookhaven with some friends who always visit when in West Cork and they recommended O'Sullivans. It looks out on to the harbour and is a simple looking pub on the outside. Inside the welcome is warm and it is popular with locals and tourists. We had the chowder which is excellent with some lovely buttered soda bread... More
