Most original Irish Bar Names
« on: September 25, 2007, 05:55:11 AM »
Any good ones out there? (not made up)

Personally reckon "The Dogs Bollix" complete with various sets of dogs gonads (plastic) on the wall is, er, the dogs bollix.

"Muddy Farmer"

"Bog" (with resident 2 man traditional band "Dodgy and the b**tard" ....did'nt seem fair to ask which one was the b**tard)

"Father Teds"

I used to like "The Dew Drop Inn" in Galway, both as a name and as a watering hole. Think it's fallen to progress since though. :(

The Camán Inn  in Cloghan, Co. Offaly is a clever name I think, and also the Pull Inn in Pullough, Co. Offaly as well, bandit country out there though :D

I was in a pub in Ferbane I think it was , the seats were ripped out of an aul mini bus ,  it had Harp calendars circa 1977 still on the walls , the barman was about 90 and he wiped the overflow of stout off the glasses with the dirtiest rag you ever seen . Jaysus the pints were lovely .

When was that downredandblack? I'd say that was a good while ago, or else it wasn't Ferbane. (I'm from Ferbane).
