I love this pub, a great pub to visit during a rugby match weekend...if you can get in thru the door!
Situated on a corner site this pub is full of light with its large window giving great views to the lively street outside.It's a great pub to watch the world go by.It has been renovated in years gone by, some of the darker colours being replaced with lighter hues giving it a lovely ambience.Original Victorian features have been retained, elegant back bars & bar counters in their traditional form.I love the front central bar creating cosy seating areas around it, coveted spaces on match days!The black & white colour scheme contrasts beautifully against the honey toned timber colours & tan leather fixed seating.It's a great example of how to modernise a traditional pub whilst retaining its character.Traditional, simple, elegant...timeless!
This bar in Clonmel, Co. Tipperary is packed with charm & a fantastic collection of Irish drinks memorabilia.
Wonderfully simple in design, narrow, cosy, divided into different cosy area areas creating bottlenecks as is a natural feature in Irish Pubs & what a great way to get to meet new people, by squeezing by them in a packed pub?The long narrow design is typical of many Irish pubs especially those in an urban setting, creating little nooks & crannies, long lengths of bar counter broken up by bar screens or cabinetry.Phil Carroll’s as you enter has a gorgeous seating area in the bright window, beautiful mirrors reflecting the light, the corner of the bar creates a lovely place to sit , simple traditional screens divide the counter from the next portion of the bar.The detailing in this bar is so simple, darkly coloured walls giving great ambience, in contrast to the dark walls is a gorgeous collection of Irish drinks & tobacco mirrors, Guinness, Jameson to name but a few.Simple tongued & grooved panelling warming up the darker wall colours, ceilings are cover in either embossed wallpaper painted or posters collected over the years.Furniture is simple, unupholstered stools with a mix of bentwood chairs & cast iron metal tables, simple timber benches build in to narrow areas.This pub really has impressive collection of memorabilia, old promotional signage, tobacco tins, biscuit tins, Jameson stoneware flagons, there are even some traditional style tea bins in sitiu, all giving colour & detail.I love the cosy feel to this bar, the simple yet interesting design & the plethora of fantastic bric-a-brac, little pieces of our history, once ordinary everyday items, now curios, what would our forefathers say???
Love Irish Pubs!!!Love your Pub!!!♥
