The Bridge Tavern sits alongside the Vartry River and the arched Stone Bridge in the heart of Wicklow Town. Dating back to 1702 it is steeped in history, not least by being the birthplace of Captain Robert Halpin, who is famous for laying the first cross Atlantic cable. A piece of this cable is displayed in our Snug Bar.
The Bridge Tavern has always offered hospitality to guests. Gerry and his Team invite everyone to EAT DRINK STAY and enjoy our best home cooked food and seafood in our tastefully designed riverside restaurant and Lounge, sit overlooking the Vartry River, or even relax in our Courtyard with a chilled glass of wine, a cup of coffee and a treat! Relax in our Lounge by our wood burning stoves for a chat and a drink, or enjoy some live music at the weekends. We also offer very comfortable accommodation in our newly refurbished ensuite bedrooms.
Try our delicious home cooked food in either our riverside restaurant or our comfortable Lounge area. We’d recommend a coffee and treat on our sun-drenched riverside patio or our paved courtyard. Our location beside the sea is reflected in our wide range of seafood offerings and our beef and meat choices are also a must.
We have two refurbished bars offering a full range of drinks and coffees to quench your thirst. Our snug bar centres round our extensive range of whiskeys which can be enjoyed around our wood burning stove. Our lounge bar offers a wide range of beers and other drinks. Served by our friendly and helpful staff, it is the perfect meeting place. We also offer entertainment, both traditional and modern on weekends.
