Gene Anderson’s Traditional Thatched Cottage Pub is filled with country charm. Established in 1734, located on the very outskirts of Carrick on Shannon, this traditional pub features amazing antiques, fantastic service from the friendly staff and an atmosphere unrivaled by modern bars.
Located in the small town of Drumshambo, overlooked by Sliabh an Iarainn mountains, Berry’s Tavern is a popular pub that prides itself on giving a warm and friendly welcome to all who walks through its doors.
Described itself as “Leitrim’s best-kept secret”, Carthy’s bar is sat along the canal that marks the start of the Shannon Erne waterway. Pop in for a locally brewed Carrig beer and a toasted “sambo” and, when the weather perks up, sit outside in the beer garden and enjoy views over the canal.
The Barrelstore is a slick and modern bar based in the centre of Carrick-on-Shannon. The vast selection of craft beer, cocktails, whiskies and wines makes it a popular spot for customers of every taste and the beer garden draws in crowds on a sunny day.
Davitt’s is the stereotypical family-run village pub, with a typical selection of beers and spirits, as well as regular traditional live music at the weekend and a happy hour on Saturdays. If you’re looking for a bar to catch a game of football or rugby while travelling through Leitrim, Davitt’s is well-worth paying a visit.
Slightly off the beaten track, award-winning gastropub The Oarsman is definitely worth a detour to sample its delicious food menus. The pub area has a big screen for watching sports and quieter nooks to hide away and enjoy a drink.
