A family-run bar serving some of the finest and freshest seafood in Ireland, O’Neills The Point is a firm favourite with locals and a must-visit for those who regularly stay on the Skellig Coast.

From Bridie’s warm welcome once you step inside the door, EJ and Donnachadh serving drinks and banter at the bar and Mike, the master in the kitchen, The Point has a well-deserved reputation (and plenty of awards) for great service and food. The menu is firmly focussed on fish and seafood, a wine list to suit as well as some of Ireland’s best craft beers. Expect to wait for a table at busy times but what better excuse would you need to while away an evening looking out over Valentia Island with a cold drink in hand and the sun setting in the West beyond the Lighthouse?
