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.

It's been a long time since I was handed a decent meal like this, we had a party of 7 and not one of us had any complaints, we were so well looked after by the waiter, he couldn't do enough for us even though he was so busy looking after his busy tables. Friendly faces, pleasant atmosphere, we will definitely be back. Love Blue bar 👌

Amazing restaurant with a view, really tasty food. Certain items on the menu are a little pricy but yet worth it. Our waitress seemed a bit unhappy but overall a good experience and I would come again!!

It was lovely but the children's meal could be better value. 10 euro for chicken and another 4 for desert is on the pricey side for casual dining. Food and service was great though.

Love this place, the cocktails are really good and staff are so lovely and helpful, chicken wings weren’t as good as they usually are, they didn’t taste as fresh as they usually do but other than that everything else was lovely !

Service was very slow we were there 1 hour and 40 minutes before we were served our main course, Food was not as good as previous experience we had here and very disappointed with my wife’s Fillet steak who they seemed to forget about as it was not brought out with the rest of our Main Courses and then when it was it was Butterflied obviously to cook quicker. For the prices they charge and the amount we spent between 7 of us I would not be going back again

Amazing food and service, our waitress was very friendly and efficient. They even brought out a dessert with a sparkler candle for my Mam for her 60th birthday which was lovely! Would highly recommend!!

Service was an absolute disaster ! Food could not be faulted but waiting 50 mins on 1st drink and 1 hr for anyone else to come back to table is unacceptable cannot believe it as usually love blue bar !

Just 100% Go for it "I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

Food delish, wings speak for themselves. Chicken liver pate was served different for the last time. It was tasty but I preferred the way blue use to serve in the small dish with the butter on top. Over all we all enjoyed our meal and would definitely recommend it to friends.

Don't like the way the wine is served. If I am paying 30 euro for a bottle of wine I would like it to be opened at the table, instead they say that their wine is served from casks in water bottles. Waitress was inattentive.

Been a few times to blue bar but this time the menu had changed. The service was friendly but food standards dropped and overpriced. The food was luke warm, full monty burger was close to inedible with peppercorn relish. Waitress didnt ask if anything was wrong probably knew by what had been eaten. Defo wont be heading back anytime soon

Loud
Serving staff had a cheeky, indifferent attitude;
Asked for a chicken burger with just a plain chicken breast (one in menu was breaded chicken) but was told there was no chicken breasts in the kitchen;
The sea-bass was off the menu cause they had run out (7pm on Sunday)
Asked for a glass of red wine, was served white. Easy mistake but attitude was flippant.
Ordered steak, came with onions
Used the ladies before I left. Sanitary bins beside toilets were overflowing;
The kitchen porter passed me in the hall heading upstairs with 2 heavy bags of rubbish that were leaking all over the floors. This was an area customers have to pass thru if they wish to use the bathrooms.
Over-priced;
Will not be back

I ALWAYS book a table well in advance when I go to Blue Bar and every time they try to seat us on stools even when there is other seating available. If I make the effort to book in advance I expect to be seated somewhere comfortable!

We have been before we travel from Athy to eat here we love the food and restaurant itself even though its very expensive and the staff are usually lovely and efficient but Sunday gone was a disaster the lady on the desk was extremely rude no apology from her zero eye contact all she seemed to do was bark orders and have the waiting staff on edge, we ended up cancelling our mains as we where waiting an hour for them to arrive and as a family with an autistic boy who can go from zero to 100 in a split second I would think twice about recommending blue bar to anybody else with children with additional needs.. we will probably come back once more but if we had the same experience we would definitely never be back...
