Hidden behind a thriving vine, which threatens to take over each summer, this charming 250-year old pub is soothingly dark inside making a fine contrast to the cheerful eccentricity of the current owner, Michael Hough.


A world famous music pub, it’s authentic and unique, family-run and with a wealth of Irish art on the walls. It’s a great local and also popular with people from the river cruisers, who come up from the harbour for pints, music and craic - for over thirty years there’s been traditional Irish music here every night from March to November, and on Friday, Saturday & Sunday in winter.


Nothing ever changes much here, although they did add a beer garden when the no-smoking law came in.

Children and pets welcome. Open 10.30 am - 1 am. No food. Traditional music nightly. Closed 25 Dec & Good Fri. abbreviations

1 euro Denotes genuine Irish food culture, ie special Irish food products/companies/producers, and highlights the best places to shop for regional and artisan foods; the selection excludes obvious 'non-Irish' elements regardless of quality, eg ethnic restaurants and specialists in coffee, wine and other drinks, unless relevant to local production or history. Eat & Stay establishments are chosen for their commitment to showcasing local produce and Irish hospitality.

Multyfarnham is a delightful traditional village in the gloriously unspoilt rolling countryside just north of Mullingar, and near Lough Derravaragh – where the mythical Children of Lir spent 300 years of their 900 year exile. Complete with a 13th century Francisca ...
