Located in the picturesque fishing village the Spinnaker Bar has been a fashionable favourite amongst locals and visitors since Niall and Maria Edmondson opened the doors in 2005. The success of the restaurant can be attributed to a number of factors including efficient and friendly staff, a warm and relaxed atmosphere and above all good quality reasonably priced food.
The home page of the Spinnaker’s website states “The Spinnaker Bar – Best for Food, Service and Fun, Family Friendly”. What makes it even more genuine is that two of Ireland’s best regarded gourmands agree with it! And when those two people are John and Sally McKenna of the Bridgestone Guide you know you must be doing something right.
According to The Bridgestone Guide:
“The focus is firmly on food at Niall and Maria Edmondson’s popular Dunmore East bar, and in the peak of the summer it can be hard to get a table here.
Sensibly, the menu sticks to the kind of food you hanker for after a day on the waves: seafood chowder; crab claws in garlic butter; beer battered fish and chips; homemade lamb burger with relish and fries. Quality is high and it’s no wonder the place is such a hit with families.”
Not only has the Bridgestone Guide acknowledged the Spinnaker as an ideal family destination, Good Food Ireland also commended the restaurant.
This is a wonderful accolade for the Spinnaker according to proprietor Niall Edmondson. Speaking to B2B Communications Niall said “Good Food Ireland was founded in November 2006 and operates as a non profit Irish food tourism organisation. It is so important to be partnered with Good Food Ireland because it was founded in order to endorse and promote those committed to local food producers, the farmers, the fishermen and most importantly, for me, the hospitality sector.”
“By being recognised by Good Food Ireland it rubber stamps their approval of the Spinnaker’s dedication and commitment to providing quality fresh and locally sourced produce – the perfect ingredients for any dish.”
The Spinnaker bar boasts a heated beer garden to the rear of the establishment with full bar facilities. It features live music most evenings during the summer season and also caters for private parties and BBQ’s.
The Spinnaker provides a regular programme of live entertainment such as regular live music in the main bar and a big screen showing all the main sporting events. There is also The Snug for a peaceful pint or a private party. There is an extensive Off-License, open during pub hours, offering a wide range of wines, beers and spirits at competitive prices.
