Previously a yacht club, this fine contemporary restaurant makes a wonderful venue for any special occasion. It recently celebrated its' 10th year in business and is right at the end of the west pier, beside the fishing boats - guests will pass the boats on one side and a series of fishmongers on the other as they arrive, which adds to the sense of anticipation, and you have to ring a bell for admission.

Then it’s up a flight of stairs and - catching a glimpse into the restaurant with its walls of glass and plenty of window tables to take advantage of its main assets - the sea views are legendary, panoramic views westwards towards Malahide, the island of Ireland’s Eye to the north and the old lighthouse at the end of the east pier - you head into what was once a snooker room and is now a seaparate characterful bar with a unique blend of original features and modern additions: with an open fire and comfortable seating, it has retained a cosy, clubby atmosphere and this convivial area is where the drinks reception will be held and where the full splendour of the harbour, the marina, and the working fishing pier can be enjoyed..

The layout creates a natural focal point for top tables. Their wedding co-coordinator will take the stress out of your big day and will advise you on wines and menus etc. You will not find a more romantic location for your big day, not to mention the photo opportunities!

Aqua has 3 exclusive packages starting from as little as €60 per person. This will include a glass of presecco, 4 courses (including a menu choice) and tea/coffee on arrival. Aqua has hosted many weddings in the past, in fact most couples still dine with us regularly to relive their special day!

Aqua is eligible to host Civil Ceremonies and will happily look after the paperwork on your behalf. Depending on your needs they are also happy to organise photographers, flower arrangements and can decorate the restaurant to suit your tastes, anything to make your day extra special!
