This award winning pub nestled on the banks of Loch Derg in Co.Tipperary is a gorgeous example of a rustic cottage style pub / restaurant.The beautiful traditional exterior complete with a thatched roof, half door, sash windows & white washed walls is picture perfect with vibrant red doors & window contrasting beautifully of the white walls.
The simple signage to the exterior is as a cottage style pub signage would have been, simple.The interior is traditional, cottage style as per the exterior, the timber wall panels painted in a light colour, traditional yet contemporary, warm honey coloured furniture in a rustic style, timber & flagstone floor complete this rustic look.The walls are rough plastered, timber beams over doorways & timber beams or panelled ceilings create a warm & inviting interior, thick walls make you feel cocooned from the outside world.Traditional style fireplaces create focal points in some of the pub areas, a framed picture of John. F. Kennedy hangs on one fireplace typical of many Irish Homes in years gone by.I love the simple, uncomplicated style of this pub, the complimentary colours from the warm painted wall panelling to the honey coloured timber & just enough memorabilia.Traditional, timeless, cosy & atmospheric, as every pub should be!!!

...There's no fireplace like your own fireplace!!!
Who doesn't love the warm glow off an open fireplace or stove in these colder darker evenings??At this time of year I love going for a walk on the beach followed up by a bowl of hot seafood chowder beside an open fire.Fireplaces in pubs especially in colder climates are a great focal point; the flame of a real fire enhances any pub turning it into a cosy haven.Customers are drawn to the glow & the atmosphere it creates is unbeatable.Make a feature of it; there is a style of fireplace to suit every pub, from a decorative cast iron Victorian fireplace with decorative tiling to a rustic fireplace with chunky mantel & fire irons.Fireplace mantels also act as a great display area for Halloween & Christmas decorations creating some cheer & atmosphere to the chilly, dark winter’s evenings.Cosy, warm, inviting...everything an Irish Pub should be!
