Pier 26 Restaurant
Our award-winning Head Chef Colin Hennessy brings together his creativity and experience to ensure you have a fantastic dining experience at any time of day. He is joined in the kitchen by a team of wonderfully skilled chefs who also work incredibly hard to produce ‘simply good food’.
The dinner menus feature fish straight from the sea and locally reared/grown produce. These ingredients, along with a bit of ‘kitchen magic’, result in various tantalising dishes.
Our daytime menu is just as appealing; again using local suppliers, the kitchen creates good, wholesome breakfasts and lunches with a couple of interesting alternatives should you fancy something a little different.
You have to indulge in one of our sweet treats when you visit (or two, or three). As well as traditional cakes and biscuits, you’ll also find other titbits with a bit of a twist…

Passionate about local, seasonal food
Our food’s provenance is simple. All of our seasonal, sustainable fish is caught right here in Ballycotton. By using only local seafood, we help to protect Irish fish stocks whilst supporting our local fishing industry.
Our beef, lamb and pork are sourced through local butchers Pat O’ Farrell and Frank Murphy. You can enjoy the Pier 26 Grill for breakfast, brunch or lunch, safe in the knowledge that all of our pork is free range – likewise our chicken and eggs.
Derek Hannon of Green Field Farm, Knockraha grows all of our chemical-free leaves, which are planted in sync with nature and picked fresh when naturally in season. Our leaves are full of flavour and contain none of the nasties.
John Kennefick, our potato farmer, is within shouting distance of our front door and supplies us with the only “real” Ballycotton potatoes in all the land!
We source our pizza dough from Volcano Pizza just across the Bay in Shanagarry. Topped with fresh, local ingredients and cooked until crisp, our pizzas are the ideal accompaniment to a glass of wine, sourced from local wine merchant Sacha Whelan, a Cork craft beer or just good company!
All of our desserts, pastries and breads are made in-house, and we use only the finest Irish cheeses for our cheese board, which goes down a treat with a coffee or two by The Golden Bean, a local, artisan coffee roaster who uses only ethically produced beans from around the world.
