“Good hearty fare”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

This is a big modern inviting bar restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. The menu is extensive; food is really good; service is top notch. There are also al fresco tables which are highly prized in summer.

“Overpriced, undercooked, overrated”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We went there as I had heard very good things about the place... But it most definitely did not live to expectations... Special of the day was served undercooked and cold... At 24 euro it was also quite a small serving (which really did not matter as it was not eaten anyways!). Service was slow and all over the place (Missing glasses, cutlery, taking plates away too soon)... Will not go back...

“Frequent diner, always pleased”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

If you're in Skerries, be sure to get to a large but friendly eaterie, Blue bar. Always professional, Blue overlooks Skerries harbour, with views that go from fresh and breezy daytimes to twinkling lights on the sea at night.

This particular visit was a Tuesday evening. The place was hopping with a mixed clientele wanting to sample the full bar, delicious hot food, teas and coffees that an excellent staff deliver promptly. On this occasion, my server was friendly, capable, knowledgeable, and professional. With tea, I enjoyed a huge Sticky Toffee pudding with extra caramel sauce and ice-cream on the side. I usually enjoy the extremely generous Ploughman's lunch - a fresh and generous plate of cold meat, cheese, relish, delicate pickled onions, and a salad garnish, all served with a few slices of thickly-cut brown bread. Super-fresh, super-filling, super-tasty.

However, I have enjoyed most of the dishes and have always found great flavour, quality, and value for money. I dine in Blue bar every couple of months for three years now - lunches, evening meals, with kids, and without. Time after time, the hardworking staff never fail to bring out beautiful starters, mains and desserts - even if you're in for a quick cuppa or a pint, this place is a gem!

“Always end up here....”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Not exactly sure why, but like many Skerries folk, I seem to end up here at least once a week! I like it (though it's very noisy at times), but it's more that this is the place were everyone hangs out, and I always meet so many people I know, and end up staying for twice as long as I intended. There is nothing quite as nice as getting an outside seat on a sunny day.... they are like gold dust, and anyone who gets one hogs it from mid-afternoon until sun-down. If you haven't been to Blue, try it, and you'll definitely come back.
