Scannells Bar

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Scannells is the archetype of the modern Irish country pub: creative, sociable, surprising, ambitious, and delightful.

Scannells is cool. You might be impressed at first by its pristine interior, by the charm of the staff, by the comfortable embrace of the rooms. But a quick glance at the menus shows just how cool this Clonakilty landmark really is. Fresh crab with Clonakilty black pudding, apple and manchego. Ummera smoked chicken with Crozier Blue cheese. Beef cheeks braised in local ale. White chocolate and hazelnut cheesecake. And when you get that first taste of these delicious concoctions, you realise just how cool Scannells actually is. Here is the modern Irish pub in all its sociable bonhommie, but it marches in lockstep with lovely, imaginative food from a dynamic kitchen, sourced and cooked with care, and served with excellent craft beers and good wines. Scannells is a Clonakilty classic.
