Formerly known as The Diamond Bar, the Finn Patrick's Bar has a great atmosphere making you feel welcomed. The staff is super friendly, and the food not only looks great, but tastes amazing. Highly recommend this Pub after visiting the local Causeways.

A wet Tuesday night saw us try out Finn Patrick/the Diamond bar for dinner. Top seafood off the specials board, great chicken goujons and a fine steak and Guinness pie. Barman/waiter didn't have the word 'no' in his vocabulary. We'll be back! Thanks
