Live your best beach babe life at this new bar in Ardmore

Fiona Frawley

Ardmore is one of the most beautiful seaside towns Waterford has to offer, and that’s saying a lot.

If you haven’t put it on your staycation list yet, now is your sign to do so. It’s got everything you could ask for – sandy beaches, an amazing cliff walk (it’s a loop which we all love to see), plenty of history and a buzzy selection of pubs and restaurants.

If that doesn’t have you convinced, maybe this new beach bar located right by the sea will:

The Urchin Bar is the Pantry at Cliff’s new venture on Ardmore beach, and looks like the dreamiest spot for a tipple in the sun.

Serving up signature cocktails and delicious rolls, sambos and wraps from local suppliers, this place is a must if you’re planning a trip to Ardmore. They’ve also teamed up with Ardmore Adventures to provide stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking if you fancy in taking in the scenery from the water.

Urchins is open til 11:30pm Monday to Saturday and 11pm on Sunday, so pack a few extra layers and sit back with a beer or cocktail and enjoy the sunset. It doesn’t get much more instagrammable than that, let’s be honest.
