Why locals love it

Opened in late 2014 this bar creates a good facsimile of a certain type of bar you would find in many villages around Ireland. These bars double up as anything from grocery stores to hardware stores and even post offices. While not the original thing it does a very good impression.

Why you should visit it

Your visit will probably be to have something to eat or drink but who's to know what useful household items you may find yourself walking away with. There is an eclectic mix of items for some impromptu DIY for sale in the shelves.

Special tip

There is a selection of other nostalgic foodstuffs behind the bar for sale and have a look at the wall art in the bathrooms.

Since the guys in our group loved the idea of a bar in a hardware shop, we had to check it out. First, I was a bit skeptic because the street seems to be more upclass and I thought the prices would be expensive, but it was very reasonable. Especially considering the bar is great! It just seems like a place where you have everything you need - good beer, snacks, even candy sold at the bar and then there's the burger place downstairs. The entire place seemed to be designed so that people would feel good and have everything they need. To be honest, only the entrance looks like a hardware shop, most of it is just very comfortable and chilled bar where you can see that people are enjoying themselves. There is plenty of space, although we were there on a Monday so I don't know how busy it will get. We also found some boardgames downstairs and had a really good time.
