The Snug is nothing less than a Wild Atlantic Way treasure, exactly the sort of place you want to discover as you arrive in Bantry on your way up or down the west coast. No bar in Ireland is just as appositely named, for Maurice and Colette’s local is an always-welcoming, and always welcome, destination, a place for good food, good pints, good times. Whether you are having a quiet lunch of excellent bacon and cabbage, sitting at the bar with a bottle of mineral water, or whether you are enjoying a lovely dinner of fresh hake with a few pints of beer, The Snug always feels just right. It’s a cloistering place that does what every country bar should do: it makes you feel special when you walk in and, when you walk out, you feel even more special. That’s a kind of magic, and that’s what The Snug does so brilliantly.
