Huge congratulations to Ger Crowley and all the team behind Row-A-Round Ireland, who finished their 1,000km journey around the country last Saturday!
The crew returned to their starting point at Bray Harbour, and stopped by for a few well-deserved celebratory pints. This epic voyage was undertaken in aid of Cystic Fibrosis Ireland, and the team have so far managed to raise over €75,000!
The crinkly crunch of brown leaves underfoot. The coziness of a decent scarf wrapped round your throat. The late-starting mornings and the long-lasting evenings.
We've always had a soft spot for autumn here at The Harbour Bar. After the hullabaloo of summertime has passed, and before the rigmarole of Christmas sets in, autumn is a welcome rest. When life slows down a little, the days draw in, and you can pull that warm woolly jumper out of the wardrobe again.
It's a time for settling down in a big, soft armchair by the fireside, with a warm toastie and a pint of whatever you're having. Curled up like a cat on a sofa, watching the sunlight ebb through a misted-up window, autumn is a time for dawdling, a time for staying inside that little bit longer before venturing out into the crisp, cool air.
Come taste the best of craft beers with Tom's Beer Club, settle in for a movie with Bray Cult Film Club, or slap your knees along with our regular trad bands. Or - if you're feeling in the mood to learn something new - why not take up a musical instrument? Learn to play tin whistle with Rie or ukulele with Pat.
We hope you'll pop down to us over the next few months to celebrate autumn with us.
