Harry's Bar and Gastro Pub
Five generations of the Ewing family have welcomed visitors to Rosses Point, to this quixotic and unique bar, one of the great County Sligo destinations.
Many visitors to Rosses Point come to Harry's because they have heard of the famous well in the bar, down into which you can peer to see the goldfish. But today, visitors to Harry's are more likely to be lured to Rosses Point because of its reputation for fine cooking, and excellent music sessions. Walk into Harry's Bar and Gastro Pub today, and you can enjoy Coopershill venison pie with a mushroom and red wine sauce and puff pastry topping, served with Lissadel honey roasted carrots. Or perhaps the aroma of spit-roasted lamb wafting around the room might decide what you will choose to eat. Or maybe a dish of rabbit two ways – rabbit and lentil pie with mustard, goat's cheese and potato crust; and confit of rabbit with creamed Savoy cabbage – will be the dish that is going to make your evening special.
Whatever you decide to eat, the food in Harry's shows how Fenton Ewing and his team have kept this unique pub at the cutting edge, year after year. They upgrade, they refurbish, they restructure and improve, they innovate and strive, all the better to make this landmark destination as good as it can possibly be. And their ambition is matched by their energy, so here is a pub that puts itself right at the heart of its community, and has done so for five generations, to the delight of locals. The cooking is assured and imaginative – cod with ratatouille and lemon butter sauce; chicken with sausage, sage and onion stuffing; Moroccan tagine spiced lamb pie; steak burger with blue cheese and red onion marmalade. The bar, with its amazing nautical memorabilia, is welcoming and characterful, their musical evenings are legendary, and the Ewing family are mighty ambassadors for Sligo and the North West.
