Drop in if you are passing - for a pint, some food, a chat and most of all, some craic!

Hackett's was originally a Beamish and Crawford pub when it opened in the 1920s and has been a bar ever since - it is a truly authentic Irish rural bar even retaining all of its original features including the stone floor with stones originally gathered from the nearby beaches!

There is a wide range of beverages - different beers from all across Europe as well of course as the old favourites. Unlike many larger bars, kegs are kept under the counter which means a very short distance to travel between keg and tap. There is also an extensive wine list. Hackett’s offers a wide range of live music - jazz, blues, rock, trad - every Friday night and in the summer season more frequently.

Hackett's is also famous for its food - both gourmet lunches and dinners using local fresh produce. It has been awarded a Bridgestone plaque every year since 1999 and was awarded the Gastropub award by the Guardian/ Observer in 2003. Try Trudy's seafood chowder or one of her spicy soups. In the evening, Gabrielle is the chef and offers a wonderful menu of dishes inspired by the French rural tradition.

The evening food is served in the sitting room above the bar and customers can stay as long as they wish and relish the whole experience.
