The Irish Public House

Live Music in Clifden, Ireland

Nowhere in Ireland do food and culture come together more than they do in the pub. It’s one of the few places where both tourists and locals gather together, easily blending, everyone as themselves.

The pub, or Public House, is not exactly a bar, nor is it a restaurant. While a pub does serve both food and alcohol, its main purpose is as a gathering place where people of any age can come together to share stories and craic (pronounced ‘crack’, it’s the Irish word for fun and entertainment).
