We went to Rush for a nice long walk along the beach. Hungry, we went into The Harbour Bar and were met by very pleasant staff who guided us to our seats and looked after us throughout our meal. The food was good and the atmosphere pleasant. We enjoyed the experience and would go back.

My wife and I are regulars here. We mostly pop in friday evening for a drink followed by a meal. I can not fault the food or the staff we always leave happy. I have to mention the bar man Niall one of the best barmen I have ever come across, a real gentleman.
