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.

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

6 of us had a meal on Saturday, we loved the evening & the waiter, without being asked, brough my son an icecream with sparklers for his birthday , which we though was so thoughtful.
My only negative feedback is I counted 22 TV's throughout the Restaurant..a bit overkill!

The menu has changed and it's not for the better.I found I had very little choice as I don't eat fish.. I am going to the blue bar a long time but I have to say I won't be meeting friends their again as I don't feel it catered for my tastes or theirs. Very disappointed .

Didn't stay for food. The table alocated was squeezed in between 2 others ..no privacy. Can't understand why people go on about this place. When I'm paying for a nice Sunday lunch out i like to be in a relaxed place not feel like I'm in a cattle market.

Lovely experience, excellent food. We were seated at the front window and felt the tables were too close together though. 4 tables of 2 in that line and really 3 tables would be much more comfortable for all. Can hear all conversations etc of people beside. In saying this it would not put me off going back but I’d ask for a different table.

We use to love Blue. The last two visits the service has been really poor. Everyone can have an off day but this was even worse. Apart from waiting for our order for nearly an hour after sitting we had two members of our party wait nearly 10 minutes after everyone else for their food. We then had to ask for missing food for the table. I asked 3 times for water and had to go to the bar myself to get sone. Eventually the waiter turned up with water. The main point would be that the restaurant wasn’t even busy. Going out for dinner is an experience and it’s not just about the food. If service is really bad it ruins the atmosphere and the experience. I think it will be a long time before we consider going back to Blue.

I t was my second time here and I was not blown away the first time either. We were seated in a small room to the right on the way in and it felt like we were in the Crying Room of a Church. It was totally separate from the beautifully decorated restaurant. It was very disappointing. The other two tables were full of small children which was perfect for them as the kids could not annoy other diners. We were 4 adults and I have no problem with kids but we were not part of the restaurant. I also find the food is very expensive and totally over rated. I wont be back

A great venue with fab food and great staff with a lively atmosphere. We have noticed that the price seems to have increased over recent months, as an average starter is around 9/10 euro, bit steep.

Went with my mam and 2 sisters for a pre Christmas lunch. Food was delicious, staff were lovely and friendly and although there weren't too many while we were there (it was quite early on a Monday) the decor was lovely with a lovely Christmassy atmosphere 🎄😊. Will definitely return.
