The Harbour Bar sits directly opposite Bray harbour and is the perfect spot for a pint
Surrounded by chiming sailboats and the resident bevy of swans, it is the most unique pub in Bray with the stories to prove it. The bar was voted “The Best Bar in the World” by Lonely Planet in 2010 and is recognised as a pub with an authentic and fun atmosphere and a passion for good music. Established in 1872, the Harbour Bar has a rich history with past patrons such as James Joyce, Peter O’Toole, Laurence Olivier, Katharine Hepburn and Bono. There is trad music in the Main Bar every Wednesday to Sunday from 9.30pm and live music in the Lounge Thursday to Sunday from 9pm. Don’t forget to say hello to the Harbour Bar cats, Raoul and Cinders, before you leave.
With traditional Irish music sessions happening Wednesday through Saturday, the Bar can get just as lively as the Lounge. The Bar has a true rustic quality that really comes alive when the music is flowing and the crowd is in full voice. Visitors to the Bar can spend many an hour investigating the various antiques and curios that crowd its walls.
The shebeen-style Lounge is where to catch great bands onstage 5 nights a week. Take a break from dancing under the famous moose head to sample something special from the wide selection of drinks on offer at the bar.
The Snug is the place to go for a quiet chat and a pint. Sitting in between the Lounge and the Bar, it’s a lovely spot to soak up the charm of The Harbour Bar and get to know your fellow patrons. You’ll never be short of a conversational companion in the Snug.
The Upstairs is an open-plan but cosy space populated with couches and working fireplaces. With plenty of room to spread out and relax, the Upstairs is where to bring the family for an afternoon get-together. Its calm atmosphere makes it an excellent venue for intimate gigs that happen on special occasions. Every so often it is transformed into a bustling market-space when The Harbour Bar hosts one of its seasonal markets. No visit to the Upstairs is complete without a tour of the famous ‘Pope Wall’.
Enjoy a view of the harbour from our comfy Conservatory. Originally built by stone mason Martin Hand, who counts Bono and Enya as past clients, it has been recently refurbished and is now cosier than ever. The Conservatory regularly hosts intimate music and poetry evenings.
The Good Room
Anyone would be forgiven for thinking they’d stepped into their granny’s sitting room when entering the Good Room at first. Grab a spot on the couch by the fire and enjoy a Toasted Special and tea amid the nostalgic bric-a-brac or challenge your friends with one of the many board games available
