As Reviewed by the UK's GUARDIAN Newspaper and Featured In the UK's SUN Newspaper 2012. Conroy's Old Bar - is not only Ireland's 1st Self Catering Pub, but the 1st Self Catering Pub in the World! For a holiday with a real difference! Unique and quirky self-catering accommodation sleeps up to 4. Conroy’s Old Bar is especially suited to those who have a love of the great outdoors. Who would like to experience the true beauty and tranquillity of rural Ireland, whilst staying in a converted authentic Irish village bar. Conroy’s is situated close to Lough Derg/Terryglass and the River Shannon. And on the border of Counties Clare, Galway and Offaly, in the small friendly village of Aglish in North Tipperary. Walking into Conroy's Old Bar is just as you would expect a typical, traditional, characterful Irish rural village bar to be. So much so, that you would think it’s business as usual. At first glance you would never know that Conroy's no longer holds a liquor licence, and that so, it has been discreetly adapted into quirky self-catering accommodation that sleeps 4. It's not until you take a closer look that you realise, even though Conroy's Old Bar has retained all of its charm and character, including its open fire, Conroy’s Old Bar is hiding a little secret all of its own……. The original highly polished mahogany bar, complete with bar pumps, optics and the original till is where you will also find neatly hidden behind it, the fully functioning kitchen, with fridge, full size cooker etc. The bar area with its Liscannor stone floor is also home to the darts board and the skittles game. The lounge with its cosy open turf/log fire is also home to all manner of pub games, books, maps and tourist information. It’s the perfect place to relax and toast your toes after a long day of taking in what this beautiful and very often overlooked area of rural Ireland has to offer. The old snug next to the lounge is now a double bedroom with en-suite wc and what was once the cellar/keg store is now home to a super king-sized bed, complete with the old beer barrel delivery door and sloping floor to aid the moving of the barrels. There is also a shower room with very large shower. There is full central heating and all linen, towels and fuel are provided. Outside there is a large beer garden with numerous seating and BBQ areas, from which there are views over the Tipperary countryside. It's the perfect place to watch the sun go down, sat in front of the open outdoor fire. The garden is also home to our friendly chickens. We do offer our guests eggs when they are available. Children are welcome to help us collect the eggs, just let us know so we can arrange a suitable time. Conroy's Old Bar is child friendly and all baby/child equipment is available. (Cot's, high chairs etc. at NO extra cost) Being all on one level means Conroy’s Old Bar is friendly to the slightly infirm or those who have trouble with stairs. The shower is large enough to put a chair in to help with those who are unable to stand for longer periods. Unfortunately due to a couple of narrow doorways it has to be said that Conroy’s is not too wheelchair friendly. For anyone who has specific needs, we are always more than happy to talk with you, to see if we can arrange and adapt the furniture to make your stay a more pleasant one.
