In a great harbour side location in the small fishing village Skerries. Blue Bar hits the spot for casual dining, a lively night out with friends, after work cocktails or just enjoying the sunset from our deck. From our award winning Wings, Fresh Seafood straight from the bay to our house Gin & Tonic's made with our own home made tonic.

We have been customers of Blue for many years and were disappointed with the latest changes to the menu. The chicken burger isnt their finest dish and was below Blues usual standard. The wings were great. Bring back the ribs and the green curry. 👍👍

Jake greeted us on arrival with a big smile and cheery greeting, good customer care. Lovely place, food, staff, we will return again. In the summer try get table out side over looking the harbor or inside at window.

Arrived with my wife and two kids for my birthday. We were seated with no problems and ordered drinks. My wife was not happy with her chicken burger which seemed to contain more breadcrumb than chicken. It was changed without problem. Replacement was perfect. Everything else was top draw as what we have come to expect from Blue Bar......I just wish they would fix the hand dryer in the gents toilet, it times out after a few seconds 😊

We are frequent diners at Blue Bar and were disappointed with our meal on Saturday night. My husbands pasta had a ‘burnt’ taste and my fish dish was average at best. My husband did mention this to the girl who was waiting the table & she said that feedback would be passed onto the Chef. Service was great however not enough to make up for poor food.

We walked in without a booking to be told it would be a 2hr 45min wait. We could see plenty of free tables. After being turned away, I went online and it allowed me to book a table within 30mins. I would have went somewhere else only we drove all the way out there to try these wings. The two unhelpful people at the door should have advised us to try book online and not just stare at us blankly. There was empty tables still when we were leaving. Only giving the customer service one star because the girl serving our table was actually nice to us.

As I would recommend Blue love the food but found women who greeted us was pretty rude purely because we had our 8 month old baby with us but hadn't booked it in online I didn't see it at the time of booking and to honest booking online ye should have a box option or something you book online so you don't have to ring defeats the purpose the girls who looked after us made up for the horrible rude greeting we got. Wasn't happy either that we weren't given a highchair we were given our table a told to just stick her on the inside. I will say overall the food and service from our waitress were great

Love Blue Bar especially for their chicken wings but lately it’s a bit hit and miss with them. Wings were too spicy, a bit on the big size, didn’t even finish them this time.

Another great meal with family in Blue Ber. The food is excellent as is the service, a really good team work there. And Blue Bar itself is incredibly nice, spotlessly clean and a super ambience. Highly recommend Blue Bar for a super night out.

Myself and my girlfriend had high hopes for the wings here and frankly we were blown away by more than just the wings in the end! Fast and friendly service, delicious food, great ambience and an overall amazing experience that left us very content on the drive home. Gun to my head if I had to nit pick there was a pretty big wobble in the table but it was not a huge deal and it’s still 5 stars from us. Can not wait to return!

We've been to the restaurant inn the past, but this time it sealed the deal of not returning.
The area ast the front where we were seated leaves you remote form the main area.
Starters were nice. Service was good too.
Main course was the issue. Fresh cod amd chips. The cod was like extended fish fingers, not a full piece of cod(you'd get better in a chipper)
Desert was nothing to write home about.
I feel The Blue Bar is losing business. In the past it used to be a great spot. Now not so much so.

I used to love Blue Bar, it’s actually probably still one of my favorite places to eat. However the last 2/3 times I have been, I found the chicken wings to be well too saucey ! These wings were perfect before and everyone in my circle had the same independent feedback. Blue bar still has a special place in my heart and I’m sure I will be back but the wings have taken an absolute nose dive Versus 1+ years ago. Perhaps the option to be that saucey should be asked before handing over the soup like wings you are banging out at present..
Kind regards James Kane 085-8000026
