Situated on the main street in Borris, this charming rural pub in traditional style has been owned by the O’Shea family for many generations. There is an extensive bar menu on offer, serving quality local produce. Its busy pub trade comprises of a complete cross section of the community ranging from a lively youth, to the farming and business sectors. A Victorian Parlour/lounge area is a particular feature of the pub as is the maze of tightly packed, brightly painted shelving and the hardware hanging from the ceiling.
“Halfway up the steep main street of Borris, this unspoiled old-world grocery-pub is well worth a visit. The old grocery section at the front links into a modern-day shop next door – a very practical arrangement that brings past and present together in a delightful way.
Conversions and extensions towards the back allow for several larger rooms, where food can be served or music sessions held, and there’s a paved area at the back for fine weather. Absolutely charming”. Source: Georgina Campbell’s Ireland Guide.
