Located in the lower village of Dunmore East, the Spinnaker Bar & Restaurant is romantically reminiscent of former times, with old stone walls, wooden and flagstone floors, stained glass and a hint of the monastic origin in some of the woodwork and furnishings. Old style mirrors and artifacts are theme-consciously displaced. In winter the crackling log fire would warm the cockles of even the hardest heart!
The Spinnaker Bar & Restaurant “Serving Food” prides itself on good quality food served in the relaxed informal atmosphere that is the Spinnaker Bar. Spinnaker’s Seafood Chowder: a signature dish associated direct with the Spinnaker Bar & Restaurant, simply a must have when dining at the Spinnaker, or visiting Dunmore East. It is packed full of goodies, an ideal lunch time favourite accompanied by an open prawn or smoked salmon sandwich.
Because of its inherent charm and character, the Spinnaker Bar & Restaurant is the place to eat and socialise in Dunmore East.

A regular haunt while in Dunmore East. The best kept secret is the early bird tenner special. Usually these tenner specials have a pared down version of the full priced options on the menu. Not the Spinnaker - generous portions, nicely plated and hot! Well done - village grub second to none
From the outset we were made to feel incredibly welcome by you and your friendly staff at the Spinnaker. You greeted guests persoanally at the door and your bar-staff greeted us as we arrived in to the Dry Dock – a detail of service that did not go unnoticed.
Christmas Party there was a blast, but a great venue all year round for personal and corporate outings.
The Spinnaker Bar & Restaurant provides local residents and visitors alike with a warm, comfortable, enjoyable, and quality experience. Terrific food and excellent service focused on the customer makes it a wonderful place to visit, and provides genuine value-for-money.
