Ireland is just a T-shirt away!
Farren's Bar
February 2020 May 27, 2020

This month’s pub is Farren’s Bar, Ireland’s Most Northerly Bar, located in scenic Malin Head in County Donegal. Established in 1825, this family-run establishment is walking distance from several local landmarks including the Wee House of Malin, a small cave on the shore where legend says a holy man once lived, and Bamba’s Crown, Ireland’s most Northerly Point. Farren’s welcoming atmosphere is inviting to all – visitors will enjoy talking over a pint with the Donegal locals – the friendliest folk in the country. The staff are also always happy to share their knowledge of the local sights including fishing spots and walking routes.

Visitors will notice a Yoda mural on the side of the pub – something the owners painted to commemorate a special time in the pub’s recent history. Back in 2016, Malin Head had quite the buzz, as the cast and crew of Star Wars: The Last Jedi descended on the tiny town to film. Farren’s was a welcome stop for the many fans hoping to catch a glimpse of the filming, and the excitement truly peaked when Mark Hamil (aka Luke Skywalker) himself stopped in for a few pints!
