Looking for somewhere nice to eat we stumbled across this pub/resteraunt just off the harbour in Dublin. On first entering we saw that the pub/bar area was full, busy and lively. We didn't think there'd be a chance that they could fit us in. However...More

We popped in here for a light lunch. The soup and sandwiches are excellent, and the service, as with so many places in Dublin, was friendly and efficient.

I didn't eat but my travelling companion had a very enjoyable meal and a pot of tea. I had an Americano and to be honest it wasn't the best. It wasn't expensive though so I'd certainly go back, but next time I'll have the tea.

Go here quite often - always get the wings.... They’re amazing! Have gotten some other things on the menu before, but they pale in comparison to the wings!

he Harbourmaster is located in the heart of Dublin’s ever growing and bustling business district, the IFSC. Our fabulous former Dock Office / Harbourmaster house was first built in the 1830’s and later transformed into a pub and restaurant in the 2000’s. Both the bar and restaurant have undergone cutting edge design transformations in the last year and we continue with exciting developments, all to be revealed throughout 2018!! The Harbourmaster is renowned for it's delicious, great quality and reasonably priced food, which can be enjoyed in the stylish restaurant and newly renovated cocktail bar or in the Old-Style Main Bar which still retains its dock house character. With our classic function rooms, nooks and crannies, the Harbourmaster is the perfect setting for any occasion however large or small! No matter what your need, our friendly team of professionals are at your service!
