Hopefully, you’ve been enjoying our recent travel series that’s shining the spotlight on some of the best places to stay in Ireland.
Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve looked at:
Today, we’re going to have a gander at an AirBnB with a difference…
It’s a pub… yes… a pub…
Welcome to Conroy’s Old Bar in County Tipperary.
The level of want is real…
Although this pub hasn’t served a customer for nearly 15 years, you’d be forgiven for mistaking it for a buzzy local public house at first glance.
Situated in a sleepy little village in north Tipperary, close to Lough Derg and the River Shannon, it’s well off the beaten track – perfect for those looking to escape city life for a couple of nights.
‘The Pub With No Beer’
While Conroy’s is packed with charm and character, the one thing that it doesn’t come equipped with is a fully stocked and functioning bar.
Often referred to locally as ‘The Pub With No Beer’, the premises no longer holds a liquor licence, and is completely dry of alcohol.
So, yea, bring your own stash if you fancy a tipple.
What the host has to say
‘The bar area with its Liscannor stone floor is also home to the darts board and the skittles game.
The lounge with its cosy open turf/log fire is also home to all manner of pub games, books, maps and tourist information. It’s the perfect place to relax and toast your toes after a long day of taking in what this beautiful and very often overlooked area of rural Ireland has to offer.
The old snug next to the lounge is now a double bedroom with en-suite wc and what was once the cellar/keg store is now home to a super king-sized bed, complete with the old beer barrel delivery door and sloping floor to aid the moving of the barrels.’
How much for a night?
The host states that they have a ‘STRICT 2 night minimum stay policy’, although they go on to say that they ‘have been known to accept 1 night bookings, but this is ONLY available to those that are “more than happy” to pay the 2 night stay rate to avail of this privilege.’
A night here will cost you from €127 and it sleeps 4.
