The Ponderosa Bar and Restaurant

About

Established in 1858, the Ponderosa is a site where history echoes and beauty flourishes and in 2014 a new chapter began seeing the entire building being transformed into an elegant restaurant and bar with a convenient store adjacent.

The old building structure is still intact but now is home to a quality restaurant featuring fresh seafood, savoury steaks and favourite local dishes served with a special flavour of the area. Patrons can also enjoy speciality drinks and cordials in the Ponderosa Bar where live entertainment is provided every weekend.

The owners and staff strive to make your visit to Ireland's Highest Bar and Restaurant an unforgettable experience providing outstanding food in a familiar and casual atmosphere. You'll find the charm of the Irish in every visit and always feel welcome.
