Locals will tell you The Harbour Bar is more than a pub, it’s an institution in Bray and beyond…
Hailed as scruffy, wild and elegant, The Harbour Bar is a true destination pub with unmatched character, a décor that is made up of curios and mementos collected over its one and a half century history, great beer, the O’Toole Toastie, a warren of rooms to explore, house cats, free music, spoken word and comedy gigs to enjoy seven days a week.
Established in 1872, as bar and undertakers and owned by the O’Toole family from 1932, The Harbour Bar changed hands when the Duggan family took over in 2013 with a pledge to preserve its unique character, honour its heritage and keep its appeal for music lovers from home and away.
Originally a terrace of fisherman’s houses, each of the many rooms make The Harbour Bar a wonderland to wander through. Each offer something different for however visitors want to soak up the atmosphere.
