The pub was known as Lafferty’s before brothers Tony & Tommy McGann bought the pub in 1975. The early days were not easy, but once the Lisdoonvarna Folk Festival was announced things changed rapidly. A younger crowd started to visit our pub and music sessions were happening all the time from the 80s onwards,
Family run pub & friendly staff
Our pub has been run by the McGann family for over 40 years and the tradition goes on. We also take great pride in our friendly staff, who always strive to offer our customers an unforgettable experience.
In 2020 and 2021 we improved our outdoor area and are now offering a wonderful setting for outdoor dining with its own bar. Make the most of the sunshine when you visit Doolin and enjoy our delicious food while listening to our garden music sessions!
