Here’s why Anthony Beirne's bar in Strokestown is Roscommon's hidden pub treasure

Grocer AND lounge.

J ANTHONY BEIRNE’S in Strokestown, Co Roscommon definitely falls into the category of traditional old school pub.

And everyone who’s been there would fully agree.

It’s so old school that it doubles up as a shop

So when you go in you have the shop part out front and this door to head on into the back bar

Two birds, one stone.


One visitor noted how handy it is:

If you’re low on fertiliser or milk, you’ll find it here too.

And that the atmosphere inside is that is a pure, quintessential Irish pub:

And if you’re low on the meaning of life, the locals in the back bar will have that in great store for you also

“Lounge and family grocer”

A hidden treasure of a pub might not have the greatest presence on Facebook or the likes, but it’s definitely one to cross off the pint bucket list.

Because it’s not just your regular spot – it’s so much better than that
