We stayed in a holiday let up the road from this restaurant, it was recommended to us by the owners and we are so glad we came as it was beautiful!! they have a lovely lounge out the back and the specials were divine. Massive portions and reasonably priced. Went back twice on that trip!

I've been at the Diamond Bar for dinner in september. I've ordered a Seafood Chowder, and it was the best that I've ever tasted in Ireland. I've also ordered a Brownie, and it was good, but nothing special, so I suggest you to try something else. It happened that the waitress went wrong and our bill was 20 pounds higher,... More

We had a very pleasant afternoon at the Diamond Bar. Charlie, the owner, Suzie and Charlie's two sons were warm and friendly, as well as the cheerful and friendly patrons. I ordered the goat cheese salad and it was like a gourmet meal. Outstanding service, food and atmosphere.

Arrived at 9.15pm on a Saturday evening - the staff were very attentive and we found all the food very enjoyable. Expected staff to be keen to get home but they made us feel very welcome so we stayed for three courses.

My wife and I were in Ballycastle since it was from there that my family emigrated to Canada. We ended up in the Diamond Bar and couldn't have found a better place. They were hospitable and friendly. Charlie and his staff did everything possible to make our visit memorable. They don't serve just pub food. The baked cod dish that... More
