This month’s pub is JJ Bowles, the oldest, and possibly the most loved pub in Limerick. Records date the pub to at least 1794, with the building dating to the late 1600’s. The pub is popular with sports fans as it is within shouting distance of Thomond Park, where you can catch Munster Rugby matches, and the Gaelic Grounds where GAA fans watch Hurling and Gaelic Football matches. JJ Bowles also boasts a beautiful view – with a beer garden along the Shannon River and views across to King John’s Castle.
JJ Bowles the man was a true legend - an Irish handball champion of twenty years in a row, and the owner of the pub in the early 1900’s. It is now owned and operated by Bowles’ grand-nephew, Aengus D’Arcy, who keeps the legacy of his grand-uncle alive. The pub is full of character and has remained largely unchanged for the past 100 years. The local newspaper, the Limerick Leader, recently ran a poll to determine the best pint of Guinness in the City, and JJ Bowles came out on top. This pub is a Limerick institution and a must-see on any trip to the Emerald Isle.
"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."
"Purchased this for my husband as a gift. We were both very happy with shirts. I ordered six months worth and we loved every single one of them. The quality of the shirts was better than expected. My husband really had fun opening them each month."
"This shirt was soft and thick, very comfortable. My husband always enjoys his shirts from Pub Shirt Club. The quality is great and you learn a bit about a pub every month."

"Love, love, love this! Received first shirt and was very impressed! The subscription is a gift for my husband and I can’t wait until I can give him the first shirt. I’m betting he will think our son will need a subscription for his 40th birthday!"
"I have really enjoyed all your shirts. They are made of great material and I like the technology used to apply the images. The bonus is the Post Card. I really enjoy seeing the actual Bar and read about the specifics. I hope you are doing well."
