We returned three times to O'Sullivan's Bar during our fortnight's holiday. I think that says it all! The sandwiches were wonderful - 5 layers of smoked salmon in mine and my husband said the beef was superb. It was straight off a joint of meat...More

A very busy bar on the pier at Crookhaven which serves excellent food and drink. It is always busy but that having been said, the service is always very fast. Does not do hot pub food but the sandwiches (especially the open crab) cannot be...More

Grab a seat outside and enjoy an open crab sandwich with a pint. Totally delicious. Dermot the owner is a friendly, welcoming guy. Place was buzzing and everyone was in good spirits. Highly recommend :)

Quaint pub at the end of the road in Crookhaven, on the Mizen Head peninsula. You'll need to have a Murphy's, though, as Guinness is not served in this locale.

Billy's (or O'Sullivan's) has imho the best view from a pub in Ireland! Staff are welcoming and laid back, food (soup, sambos and desserts) is basic, but tasty (crab open sambo & basket of shrimp are highlights). The pub itself has really interesting pictures of...More
