Iconic. That is all that can be said. But I won’t get away with a one word trope today. For sure I won’t. So here it goes. Three thatched pubs. Make a day out of it. A long and leisurely day. Anything less will be a sacrilege. Our starting point? Birr, in the lovely County Offaly.

Thatched Pub in Ireland

You will never want to leave this delightful thatched pub, once you settle in. Friendly and cosy, Dan and Molly’s will steal your heart. Folks travel from far and wide to get in the door when the trad music is playing, and when it is not. 

Call in for a game of cards, a chat, and a pint or your favourite tipple. Perch yourself on a stool and settle in. Dan and Molly’s pub is like the Hotel California. You can check out any time you like, but it will forever be in your heart. 

When you do manage to extricate yourself from under the thatch number 3 does await. Surely you must be getting peckish again. And how lucky you must feel for Hennessy’s, and a hearty meal, are on the horizon.
