A trad session and a hammer, please.

THE CLASSIC IRISH pub tradition of including a hardware shop, a grocery store or an undertakers all under the one roof seems to be a dying trend.

But one place that keeps the tradition alive is Foxy John’s pub in Dingle, County Kerry.

They roll a hardware shop and a bike hire into the traditional pub setting – and it’s even on the sign

And it’s beloved by visitors and locals alike

Because it’s not often you’ll get a pint in such a ridiculously traditional setting

And the trad sessions only add to the atmosphere

Half the conversation could be taken up by things you spot on the walls

Foxy John’s was chosen for the Star Wars wrap party earlier in the year too – they know a good pub when they see one

As one Yelp review put it, Foxy John’s is a “wonderful example of Irish wit and hospitality

And another drinker noted, “Where else can you purchase a hammer and nails with a pint of beer?”

There’s not too many places, that’s true.

And that’s why Foxy John’s in Dingle is a Kerry treasure worthy of celebrating
