About Us

Traditional Irish Music and Dance, Great Food and Great Craic at Ireland's Best Tourist Pub

Our pub, The Bridge Bar, is the perfect place to experience true village life. Great food, great atmosphere and great service has made it the winner of the 2007 Tourist Pub of the Year at the Licensing World Awards and Overall Winner of the 2005 Irish Pubs of Distinction Pub of the Year Award.

 Traditional Irish music is at the heart of the craic in the pub. We have traditional Irish music and set dancing every Friday and Sunday night with dancers arriving from far and near. We have a dedicated group of local set dancers who would dance every night of the week if they could. This commitment comes from growing up in an area where the set dance still thrives. The sets are local but we have also incorporated some of the more popular polka sets from Clare, Galway and elsewhere.

And, in July and August, we have an 'Irish Night' every Tuesday night. A mixture of all things Irish, the night showcases local musical and dancing talent. Gerard is the Master of Ceremonies, being a guitar player and singer of some note himself. If you want to know what exactly is meant by the term the craic, then you'll have to show up Tuesday night.



Local Attractions

Portmagee is within reach of a huge number of activities from golfing to diving, for which the area is justly famous.

We're also the departure hub for trips to the amazing and awe-inspiring Skelligs Rocks, the home of preserved monastic settlements from the 6th century.

And this is just the jewel in a crown of beautiful scenery, historical sites and fascinating places to visit in the area.
