January’s pub is the Slieve Bloom Bar, a family-run pub in the village of Kinnitty, County Offaly, smack in the center of Ireland. The large black and white building dates back to the 1800s and is a welcome stop for walkers, bikers, scouts, and anglers, as it is nestled in the breathtaking Slieve Bloom Mountains. The pub has been in the Clements family for over 50 years and is a great spot to learn about the local history and folklore as you sit around the warm fire and sip pints. The walls are adorned with historic memorabilia, and there are beers to suit all tastes. Current owner Kieran Clements will make you feel as if you are a guest in his home, and will see to it that you are well looked after.
