This month’s pub is Cronin’s Sheebeen located just outside Westport, County Mayo, in an idyllic seaside setting on the Wild Atlantic Way. This beautiful thatched pub was founded around 1810 and was originally named Angler’s Rest because the nearby Belclare River was a popular spot for fishing. In the 1950’s the pub officially became known as Sheebeen, as it developed a reputation for being frequently raided by the Gardaí (police) for staying open after hours. The word Sheebeen derives from the Irish síbín, meaning ‘illicit whiskey’, and is the common term for illicit bars where alcohol was sold without a license.
These days, father and son proprietors Colm and Simon Cronin have lovingly updated the pub with an aim to provide a relaxed and unhurried atmosphere for all patrons. The comfortable dark wood interior is dotted with open fires, stained glass windows and cushioned bench settees. Nautical charts, fish identification posters and local photographs adorn the walls and give the Sheebeen a unique identity where you instantly feel at home. With fantastic local seafood specials like fresh Clew Bay lobster and Clare Island salmon and a great selection of beer, wine, and spirits, you are sure to be captivated by the charm of this wonderful pub.
"I absolutely love these!!! I bought them as a gift for my boyfriend (now husband). He loved every month!!! I also steal his shirts cause they are awesome!!!!!!"
"I love this subscription. The t-shirts are awesome, they are comfortable, fit well, wash well, don’t shrink or fade and the colors are awesome. I love that each month the shirts come with a post card size information card about the history of the pub and the location along with the picture. It’s really a fun subscription to have."
