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 going to Blue Bar for many years but this time it was disappointing. The portions have been halved (we had the cod and chips) and the famous chicken wings were overcooked. The cocktails were lovely and our server was very good. The ambience is always nice too but the food let the place this down this time.

This is an honest review, table for 5 haven't been to Blue Bar for sometime, birthday celebration for my son, Firstly couldnt find my booking which i made via Open Table, even though i did reconfirm some 24hrs before my sitting of 8pm. Eventually we were found, checked vaccines etc etc, and seated, Nice waitress, all good, but after our starters we were left waiting for condiments / clean utensils etc even though our mains where on the table. Food was out of this world, though part of my wifes meal was stone cold (mushy peas) when this was brought to attention of waitress, the reply was thats the way they come. Ok lets move on,.... Desserts, daughter wanted choc brownie and asked if could have without the almonds, this was checked and told no we dont do it like that, so we declined and as quick as lightening the waitress replied so do you want the bill then, even though we had drinks to finish. The experience of been out again and dining could of been somewhat better,... We did get out bill and left a nice tip too. i recommend Blue Bar, food is great but just some smaller detail needs tweaking.

Wings was a bit dry. Seems like it was over cooked( deep fried) and it didnt have a lot of meat on it.

When we arrived, we were shown to our table and were not asked for any proof of vaccination etc. When 2 of us were served with our meals we pointed out that there was no cutlery on the table. When the other 2 meals were served, we were told that there were no forks available but were offered spoons. Rather difficult to eat Sea Bass or Cod with a spoon!! We eventually received cutlery but, by that time our was cooling drastically. We have dined in the Blue Bar many times but this was our first disappointing experience.

We had a gorgeous Sunday brunch at bluebar for my Dad' birthday.
We sat outside in a booth with plenty of cover and a gorgeous view of Skerries Harbour. The service was great, staff were really friendly, helpful and efficient when I had to rearrange time of booking in advance. The portions were very generous!

Food was overpriced in particular the tagliatelle which barely contained six prawns. Our complaint to manager was barely acknowledged and he just kept trotting out some nonsense without any apology.

The Blue Bar lived up to its normal standard of delicious food and great service.
It was very quiet, which is very unusual for Blue Bar.
It is one of my favourite places to eat.
