Great town, great people, great bar
Aug 2019 • Family
Dropped by in the pouring rain with a large family group ranging in age from 15 to 60 and we were made welcome instantly. The food and drink was very good, the staff were helpful and friendly and the ambience around the bar was wonderful. As the afternoon wore on into early evening, the sun came out and the doors were wide open with people inside and out. Musicians started to play and the atmosphere went up another notch. Around teatime we had to leave and it was with a heavy but very contented heart that we left this magical pub in the most beautiful of towns. The views of Bantry Bay are stunning and they go on for miles and miles. I will be back very soon!

Great traditional music pub

Had a fantastic night here. Johnno leading the music but anyone could play and sing. The bar has a spare guitar. Lots of traditional songs and plenty of singing.

Great bar, fab music
Jul 2019 • Couples
We were passing here recently walking back to our hotel when we heard some music coming from it. It was a number of old guys on their guitars and sounded good. It was 10pm when we went in and almost 2am when we left!!

The place was buzzing with the singing from the guys, the chat around the place. The barman was friendly and the crowd very varied in age and all having a good time

The Perfect Pint?!?!
Jun 2019 • Friends
After two different weeklong guided tours of Ireland for the sights, food, and, of course, looking for the perfect pint, I am prepared to say, on 24 June, 2019, about 5:15pm, a pint of Guinness, served at this fine humble establishment, has come as close to this lofty goal as may be possible without trying every pub in the country. As I think back to that moment, I have no issues whatsoever is saying it was the PERFECT PINT. Bravo. Well done.

Bernard is the man
May 2018 • Friends
Came here when staying in Glengarriff for a wedding. What can I say about this place? Bernard is the man, we had a great time closing this place down every night of the week, even got engaged out front. Bernard was bout to come out and scold me because he thought I was busking. Met a cool guy named Jonno who was playing guitar there and we ended up jamming, he even brought me a guitar later on in the week. Great place for hanging out and slinging back a lot of pints. Would definitely return here if I ever make it back to Glengarriff. Cheers.

The most trusting landlord on earth.

At the end of a fantastic day and the first sunny day of 2018; my wife and I dropped into Bernard Harrington’s Bar in Glengarriff and ordered our drinks.
Unfortunately due to not checking my wallet earlier I had no cash to pay.
Argggh! Be f’in ware!!
There is no ATM in Glengarriff and no facility in this bar to pay by card.
No problem Bernard said. Where are you staying. Okay. Drop it in tomorrow.
Brilliant. Thank you Bernard. You saved our night. Most trusting bar I’ve ever been to. Bernard even asked if we wanted more drinks after our embarrassing first.
Top class. If anyone reads this. Please do not take advantage. Make sure to pay your bar tab.
Glengarriff need’s an ATM.
Why can this fantastic town not have one?

A true Irish bar
Aug 2017 • Family
The best a most natural welcome in glengariff. The chilled out atmosphere was on tap, great music on both midweek nights. They were very welcoming even with a 1 year old. Toilets could be improved to make it more homely
