Beachside Bar & Restaurant
The Glyde Inn was awarded National Pub of The Year and Irish Food Pub of the Year 2018 at the Irish Pub Awards in RDS. Traditional Irish Pub and Sea View Restaurant. The Glyde Inn sits here at the heart of natural beauty. A place of sandy beach, deep blue sea and distant granite mountains; all culminating in a quiet, friendly atmosphere that surpasses expectations. Situated in Annagassan, a place famous for Linn Duachaill, a Viking Longphort overlooking the Cooley and Mourne Mountains.
If you were looking for a bite to eat, why not try the newly renovated Linn Duachaill restaurant which has garnered praise from press and public alike since its opening, for the fresh seasonal dishes prepared by award winning chefs and offered up alongside stunning views of Dundalk Bay and the Mountains of Mourne. The friendly efficient staff are sure to make your visit a treat to remember.
The Inn hosts a family run traditional Irish pub, which though first established during the 1770's, is as the owners proudly acknowledge "Authentic, untouched and unhurried". No wonder then that Paul and Ann manage to keep their promise of creating a place of respite from the modern world in a venue for old and young with music and craic.
The outside terrace operates on a walk in basis only and cannot be booked.

"Food Was Unreal"
"Run, don’t walk to the Glyde Inn for your next lunch or dinner! Just had an absolutely fab lunch with my sister in law. We had the chowder, mussels and prawns, followed by sticky toffee pudding and Christmas pudding. Food was unreal and the staff were just as wonderful. Great coffees too! The fireplace and decor made the atmosphere so cozy, especially just before Christmas. Can’t wait to go back!"
"It's Truly a Gem"
"Annagasan, by the seaside. That spirit of the iconic Irish pub, the old Irish pub. Impressions are overwhelming me. We had a dinner there with my wife, on a rainy day and the atmosphere inside was unbelievable. Quiet, warm and cozy, just near the fireplace. And the staff was just great, so friendly and professional. Dishes were simple and cooked properly. My full respect and best recommendations. Well done!"
"Our first meal out in a year and a half brilliant service from lovely staff.”
