Deasy's Harbour Bar & Seafood Restaurant

Just across the road from the water in the pretty village of Ring, this traditional pub has a decking area at the front and large windows taking advantage of the view of Clonakilty Bay and the boats moored nearby.


Inside, brick walls are decorated with photographs of local interest and nautical bric-a-brac - fishing net, a ship’s wheel, wooden model ships - and there are coffee table books on marine themes to browse; with all this, and candlelight as well as sea views, it’s an atmospheric setting for fine seafood.


Simply set tables keep the focus on menus which are perhaps surprisingly international in style - no house or local specialities are mentioned, although chef Caitlin Ruth is committed to freshness, and to using local and organic produce where possible.


Fish is delivered daily from Union Hall and 'customers know to expect fresh, creatively cooked and presented fish'; and they certainly offer a wide range of seafood, sometimes including less usual varieties such as shark, as well as fairly classic prime fish dishes - hake fillet with bouillabaisse sauce, croûton and rouille, perhaps.


Piquant dips and sauces are out of the ordinary, adding a new dimension to familiar dishes - grilled John Dory fillets may come with celeriac purée and pistachio pesto for example. Other than seafood, there are some token offerings of meat or poultry for carnivores, and vegetarians may expect an interesting alternative.


Good cooking is also seen in tasty vegetables and delicious desserts, and details like lovely breads and thoughtful presentation.


With an informal relaxed atmosphere, interesting food and a lovely setting, this has become a popular spot so book well ahead, especially in high season.


Service can be a little slow at busy times, but friendly staff are always good humoured and helpful. Parking can also be a bit of a challenge in high season, it could be worth considering arriving by boat.

Seats 50 (private room, 14); D Wed-Sat 6-9.30; early bird 2/3 course D 6-7pm €26/32, also a la carte. L Sun only, 1-3; set Sun L about €30; house wine €20. Not suitable for children after 7pm. Closed Sun D, Mon, Tue and 24-26 Dec. MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
