Arundel’s By The Pier was originally established in the 1890s by Henry Arundel
His original ledger for the shoreside pub in Ahakista dates back to 1899. You’ll see it for yourself when you visit. Like a lot of pubs back then, Arundel’s sold everything from whiskey to hardware and shoelaces.
Henry’s son, Timothy Arundel, took over in 1933 and, 29 years later, Paddy Arundel took over the business with his wife, Mary.
Paddy and Mary spent 50 years providing the very best hospitality to the local community. In 2011, Paddy and Mary handed over the reins to their youngest son, Shane, and his wife Fiona, and while the pub has been modernised since then, it has kept the old bar’s original character, spirit and history.
An Irish Pub at the Heart of its Community
Arundel’s is, after all, an integral part of the community in Ahakista, West Cork. And its annual Hawaiian party and table quiz is the stuff of legend!
It continues to be a popular meeting place for locals on the Sheep’s Head peninsula.
It’s also a popular spot for visitors who are exploring the walking and cycling routes on the Sheep’s Head Peninsula as they tour the Wild Atlantic Way.
Call in today to enjoy a drink or some lovely bar food with unbeatable views over Kitchen Cove – it’s a gorgeous way to experience the hospitality and the atmosphere of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.
