About McDaniel’s Pub and Restaurant
at Brittas Bay

Brittas Bay’s sandy shores and stunning views of the Irish Sea have made this one of Ireland’s favourite go-to seaside retreats for decades. Mc Daniel’s has been Brittas Bay’s landmark destination since 1790, serving the local community and sun seekers alike with delicious food, drink, and warm hospitality from its unbeatable location by the beach. 

McDaniel’s pub offers top class food, fine wines, and proper pints in a relaxed and tranquil setting. With its exposed cut stone walls, high roof and traditional hardwood floor adding to the atmosphere while an open fire brings a cosiness to the space. Pull up a stool or snuggle up in front of the open fire and enjoy a creamy pint of Guinness.

Customers can enjoy a delicious meal from Elephant & Castle, now available at McDaniel’s. From world-famous wings and gourmet burgers to fresh salads and homemade desserts, Elephant & Castle is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, with amazing brunch dishes on Saturday and Sundays.  

McDaniel’s has an incredible function room which can be privately hired for parties, celebrations, communions, confirmations, day two weddings, and much more! The White Room is available throughout the year and our dedicated Events Team is on hand to make sure your occasion is extra special.
