We always go to Dempseys when we go to the harbour. It's a lovely bar with great views, lovely outdoor area and great atmosphere. Good selection of beers, lagers and wines to suit our group. It's a busy bar and is very popular.

Lovely pub on the seafront which is bright and airy yet has a cosy feel about it. Loads of sporting memorabilia and TV's which play sports programmes. Great on match day. Friendly staff, would recommend.
