About No. 8 Tapas Bar

Hi, We’re Jim and Ruth.

No 8 is a local business born of our love for Spanish food and culture. Having spent many holidays in Spain and  great times enjoying tapas bars, we were inspired to bring an authentic experience to Westport.

Our concept is to serve small dishes tapas style….. it is all about the sharing and enjoyment of eating and tasting some amazing flavours. Our aim is to make every customer feel at home with its informal buzzy atmosphere and welcoming staff.

No 8 combines best quality food wines and beers…. authentic preparation, friendly service and great prices delivered in a contemporary space with a neighbourhood vibe.

Jim and Ruth

What’s unique about No. 8 is that we have managed to maintain a pub atmosphere where our clients can come in and enjoy drinks at the bar or by the open fire, whilst providing comfort and privacy to our diners as they indulge in our delicious tapas dishes in our thoughtfully laid out dining area.

Following extensive adaptations we have increased the capacity of our kitchen, enhanced the dining area and created a warm intimate surrounding.
