Here’s why Gings bar in Carrick-on-Shannon is the best place to be when the sun's out

Would you look.

ESTABLISHED IN 1880 on the banks of the River Shannon, Gings Bar has obviously been around for a long, long time.

Just over the bridge on the Roscommon side of Carrick-on-Shannon, it’s used that time to establish itself as a serious pint destination in the town.

But it’s the beer garden on a sunny day that’s truly spectacular

Right beside the water, the sun hits it perfectly when it’s out

And if you look the other way, you have a gorgeous view of the bridge

It’s up there with Ireland’s best beer gardens by all accounts

And the reviews on TripAdvisor concur – we could be dealing with the best beer garden on a sunny day:

One of my most memorable pub experiences in Ireland.
Great bar, great pint and brilliant service, juke box,pool table and all round good vibes in the place with savage beer garden

Absolutely savage spot for a pint, no doubt

As long as the weather is on your side

It’s a stunning spot for a few jars

Beer gardens come into their own in summer, and this place is no different <3
