About The Harbour Bar

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.

Reserved upstairs for a small event. Everything was perfect, more than enough space, and accommodating to when I needed to push back the reservation time by an hour.

Went to the Harbour Bar with our Roller Derby team. I had booked this and received calls to confirm details and also to ask about our food requirements. Food came from Platform Pizza and it was delicious. The staff were very helpful and extremely friendly.

We reserved the cosy living room space behind the main bar, for day two of our wedding. This space was just perfect for us and Kim was very kind and helpful, making sure we were well catered for. Our friends were extremely complimentary of the room, the staff and of course...the pizza! The Harbour Bar is a gem! Thank you. Clara and Vinny

We booked the upstairs function room for the second day of our wedding. We had food ordered both from platform pizza and meat and fish platters from the harbour itself. The food was delicious and went down well with our guests. The staff couldn’t do enough for us and everyone had a fantastic night as the atmosphere was amazing. Thanks so much Kym and team. We will be back. Lisa and Craig Wanden

Booked the lounge for our wedding party and had a great night, so much praise for the venue! Rachel, Kim and the rest of the staff were so kind and helpful in the lead up and throughout our day. Atmosphere was great yet relaxed, and great to have the pub buzz and music downstairs too. Food from Fishbar was perfect. We had a fantastic time - so happy we held our party here. Thanks so much to all the team at Harbour for everything!

Awesome venue. We're visiting fairly regularly for a drink but hadn't booked the upstairs before. It was a pleasure to deal with the lovely staff, service was prompt and the atmosphere really amazing, appreciated by all our guests. Thanks Rachel, Kim and the Harbour Bar team!

We had a terrific night of celebration upstairs in the Harbour Bar with an area reserved for us. The staff were super and very attentive. We were able to order food in which was great so all we had to do was turn up! Special thanks to Barry, Kim and Cliona.
