May’s pub is a true hidden treasure. Jim of the Mills is legendary-often touted as the best pub in Ireland, most certainty for it’s guaranteed craic, warm hospitality, and brilliant music sessions. Open only one night each week and with just one beer tap, Jim of the Mills is the embodiment of a quintessential family-run Irish pub. Tucked deep in the rolling hills of Upperchurch in County Tipperary, Jim and Kae Ryan along with their five daughters, welcome locals and visitors from around the world into their home each Thursday night. If you are lucky enough to visit this pub you’ll quickly understand the music-loving family’s promise that if you come with a smile you’ll leave with a bigger one. The quaint farmhouse has been in the Ryan family for over 200 years and functioned as a mill for much of that time. The pub’s 3 small rooms, stone floors and massive turf fireplace are steeped in local history and tradition, and if the walls could talk, they’d sing. Music is at the heart of everything at Jim of the Mills – as musicians young and old gather each Thursday to play local songs and traditional tunes all from the heart. Jim of the Mill’s energy is the stuff we all dream of – make a trip there and you’ll feel like you’ve found a pot of gold at the end of an Irish rainbow.
