Connolly's bar in Manorhamilton is a delightfully old school spot for a pint

Small but mighty. And €3 Guinness!

WITH ALL THE new-fangled bars and restaurants springing up around the country weekly, who could blame you for wishing for a pint in an old-fashioned Irish pub.

Connolly’s Bar in Manorhamilton, Co Leitrim, is one of the precious few truly old school pubs left in Ireland, and it’s a delight.

Customers say it’s been the same for 50 years

And sure if it ain’t broke…

There isn’t room to swing a cat in it

There’s room enough for 20 customers. The whole place is a snug.

But the pints are top notch

You have a choice of a pint of either Smithwicks or Guinness for the princely sum of €3. What more could you be wanting?

Most importantly, there are Emeralds behind the bar

No fancy pub food, but you certainly won’t go hungry.

And if you’re lucky, owner Joe Connolly will sing you a song

Joe is renowned in Manorhamilton for his beautiful singing voice, and claims to know thousands of songs - his wife Ita is often on hand to sing backup:
