If it's an authentic Irish pub you are after look no further than Lenehan's Pub, Castlecomer Road in Kilkenny.
This pub is cosy out & as original as they come not much has changed since it was a merchant trader house until today.The striking pubfront with handcarved corbels & rich red colour invites you inside & you won't be disapointed with the traditional pub interior. Lovingly card for over the generations by the Lenehan family from generation to generation.The front bar complete with original snug in the window still retains the old shop drawers behind the dark timber bar counter.Barrell end sit into the back bar, a little crooked, well settled in after all the passing years.Display cases show off old shop memorabilia from years gone by along with lots of interesting pictures this pub has little piece of history everywhere.The front shop section of the pub is divided off by beautifully moulded top glazed screens with warm textured glass,adding warmth to this gorgeous space.The dark timber panelled ceiling adds to the cocoon like feeling of this pub, warm amber coloured pendants hang over the panelled bar counter, filled with atmosphere & character. It's the kind of pub that you can settle into for the night.
I love Irish Pub Shopfronts !!!
From the grandeur of a Victorian Dublin Pub to the rural simple charm of a country cottage Pub, with a simple sign over the front door.I especially love these small but perfectly formed shopfronts.
They all reflect the scale of a lot of Irish buildings of days gone by, with low ceilings & small windows, & these examples are perfect in scale to the building they sit into.They just show you what you can do with a simple shopfront; although small they are all eye-catching due to the contrast of colours used & use of simple advertising signage.The scale of the shopfront pilasters is petite, in keeping with the height.Although they may be smaller than other shopfronts the level of detail is not lost, detail being added through the use of hand carved corbels & raised lettering.Small, perfect & very inviting.They are beautiful, simple & effective.
Love Irish Pubs!!! Love your Pub!!!♥
