The Blue Bull



This month’s pub is the Blue Bull located in the heart of Sneem in County Kerry. The name of the pub was derived from a quote in The Playboy of the Western World by J.M.Synge, “strike him yerself Michael James or you’ll lose your drift of heifers and your Blue Bull from Sneem”. Established in 1919, The Blue Bull is a traditional pub and restaurant known for its friendly service, fresh seafood, and ample selection of beer. On a sunny day you can enjoy some local mussels and a pint at one of the outdoor tables, and when the rain comes you can tuck in at a fireside table and enjoy a tasty bowl of chowder inside the cosy pub. Rumor has it that the Blue Bull is composer Andrew Lloyd Webber’s favorite Irish pub!

The quaint village of Sneem sits along the estuary of the River sneem on the Iveragh Peninsula along the famous Ring of Kerry. Given it’s location, the village is a popular stop for travellers of the Ring of Kerry and the Kerry Way Walking Trail. The familiar atmosphere of the Blue Bull attracts both visitors and tourists, and is a great stop to refuel for your next adventure.
