We really love this place, but do to COVID restrictions the place was closed when we showed up for my wife's birthday dinner. We should have been notified the reservation was no longer in place.

We had a lovely meal and the young lady who looked after us was outstanding. Her name is Beibhinn I think that's the right spelling.
Thanks a lot. Hugh

Crab salad, fish and chips top class and the home made beef burger was really succulent. We really enjoyed our meal.
The waitress was very nice and polite.

Everything about blue bar was top quality. As soon as you enter the staff will show you to your seat. The meals are prepared very quickly. The waiting staff are very helpful and courteous.

for a start the waiter literally only came over twice the entire time would have loved a drink. but then again i respect that cause he’s just tryna do his job so fair play. but then you guys closed the next day due to a staff member having COVID and the odds they all have it is likely so that terrifies me and i will never come back but i doubt you care so that’s ok! best of luck!

I have read online that staff members have tested positive for COVID-19. I have been in the blue bar on Saturday night with No contact from the company if this is true? Have the HSE been made aware of this and have myself and my partner to be tested to make sure our family are safe?

I would not be recommending the Blue bar to anyone at the moment. We where put into a small room to the right hand side when I arrived and there was a table or 4 of us. In the room sitting was already 12 people, there was no social distancing being adhered to.

Also, the food was not fresh we had only ordered and it was on the table in 5 minutes.

Also, there is a lot on social media at the moment about young staff from the blue bar attending a Covid party to see who they could infect and certain places have closed in Skerries due to this and I’ve not heard anything from the Blue Bar regarding this, which I think is a disgrace.

Excellent service. Food very good, Waitress and greeting staff very pleasant and chatty. The only problem we had was water served to the table had a taste and smell which staff removed and replaced. As a result this seemed to effect the taste of the tea we ordered also. Other than that I would highly recommend Blue Bar and plan to return soon.

Blue bar is a nice venue with pleasant helpful staff. However, the food is very overpriced for what it is and the menu is a bit all over the place. I have been many times over the years and the quality does vary. But simple things like steak or fish - which are priced in the 20 euros range - can be very boring or tough. The wings and burgers are the main thing but even those can be poor. On the night we went we had prawn pil pil which was ok, a tough ribeye (27 euro) . The steak was cooked properly. But it was just a bad cut. 2 dishes were particularly bad - Calamari which was frankly ruined and a bland chicken Caesar salad at around 15 quid. Want to support local biz etc but they have to do better. With a bottle of wine added and 2 beers the bill was excess of 120 euro. For this money I expect better.

Arrived with no mask. Didn't know I needed one. Guy sold me one for €1 and handed it to me which meant the mask was then contaminated. Walked literally seven steps to my table to take mask off.. didn't make sense. Come here quiet often for the wings. and find the past 3-4 times the wings are reheats and mostly drums. Little disappointing but other than that we always enjoy visiting blue bar

Only issue with this visit to BluBar was other diners coming in without masks and refusing to wear them while they walked to their table. One old lady was given one by a member of staff but she carried it in her hand to her table. No body cant wear a mask for 40 seconds. And if you cant then dont go out for dinner.

Bravo to Blue in Skerries. Couldn't say enough good things about it. Beautiful spot. Sterling service and the food is great. They have their covid routine down pat and the staff are obviously well trained.
