Four generations of O’Connells have been caretakers of this wonderfully unspoilt country pub

O'Connell's

Four generations of O’Connells have been caretakers of this wonderfully unspoilt country pub and longtime owner, the late Mary O’Connell, delighted customers old and new for many a year until her death in 2012 at the age of 95.


Now run by her daughter Marguerite and other members of the family, it’s all beautifully simple two little bars with no fancy bits, lots of items of local interest, and a welcoming fire in the grate. What more could anyone want? As for directions: just head for the tower beside the pub, which is visible for miles around.

After a quiet off-season drink a few doors along at Joe May's, there can be no greater pleasure in north Dublin than to slip into 'Stoops' for some of Andy Davies' mainly seafood cooking. 'Fresh, simple and wholesome' is how he describes his food, and who could want any ...
