Description: The Forty Foot Bar and Grill is located in the heart of Dun Laoghaire with panoramic views of Dun Laoghaire harbour that are beyond compare. The incorporation of the contemporary open fire, polished pewter bar counter, luxurious fabrics, innovative lighting and slick artwork by Terry Bradley creates a modern yet laid back atmosphere. The menu boasts an eclectic mix to tantalize the taste buds! Whether it’s dinner or drinks, the FortyFoot Bar and Grill has something for everyone. We have a vast selection of worldwide beers and an irresistible cocktail menu.

Very bad experience. We had to go back to the bar three times to order, as they were out of food for each order we wanted. Had to queue each time.
Bacon brie burger had only one tiny piece of bacon on it. Veggie burger was so over-cooked it could be used to break a window. The buns on both burgers weren't toasted, and were greasy and doughy. No lettuce or onion on both burgers, just tomato. Only told when we queried that they were also out of lettuce and tomato.. Didn't tell us when we ordered. Seriously, could a member of staff not go to the local shop and get some?
Cheese sauce (side) was crusty, like it had been sitting under a heat lamp for ages.
Staff were rude, and offered no apologies for lack of dressings on the burgers. Both burgers didn't taste great. Would definitely not recommend this place.

We had a couple of drinks here and found it to be great value. There were lots of students in (probably attracted by the drinks deals) so there was a good atmosphere.

Went to the forty foot three years ago when on a visit to Dublin.Wasnt very impressed when you go to a pub what do you expect.Beer! No all the ale pumps were being cleaned at the same time,and it was a bank holiday.So we thought we would give it another try.There was six ales on the pumps which were either very citrusly (lemon or grapefruit tasting) or they were strong ales 5 or 6% proof..I did find an ale which was drinkable but this was attached to a cider pump.I can’t remember it’s name but a customer told me it was from cork.Along the bar there was six more ales coming soon which had better variety of proofs and tastes which should have been mixed in with was being served.They were also advertising that this was a beer festival .Its an ok place if you like lager

They messed up our orders and we lost €20 which they wouldn't give back. They gave us a burnt pizza that we payed extra for even though it was in our order and their chips are not good.
