The Gaelic Bar

The Gaelic Bar



The Gaelic Bar This month’s pub is the Gaelic Bar in the West Cork village of Drinagh. This quaint country pub has been in the Connolly family since the early 1860’s when the current owner’s great great great grandfather purchased the land and building which was formerly a small shop and liquor store. The pub has been handed down from father to son or nephew over the generations, and is still family run.

The pub’s exterior is a warm welcome to visitors with its stone façade and gloss red trim. Inside you will find all the comforts you’d expect in a traditional Irish pub – friendly people, live music, and a warm stove, and renovations are currently taking place to build an early 1900’s style snug inside the pub as an ode to the history of the building. As an added bonus there is an extensive beer garden out back for enjoying pints on sunny days. While the Gaelic Bar is certainly off the beaten path, it is well worth the visit for anyone seeking an authentic family run pub experience.
