Best pub in Ireland

I am biased but believe you won’t find a better example of a genuine Irish pub, with all the atmosphere and charm that have given the Irish pub it’s world renown. If you’re looking for a real Irish experience, great pint of stout and a friendly chat, this is most definitely the place to be.

A total Irish yet international welcome with a great man at the helm !!
Sep 2020 • Friends
A most welcoming Irish pub in all it can be .. a wee step back in time .. Covid Protocols in place so felt very comfortable!! From one generation to the next the pictures and art show a healthy respect as custodians of a great place ( great music in pre Covid days ) food served and great pizza !! Outside in the back has a nice open space when the sunshine’s .. known for its pint and a great knowledge of all drinks the tourist would love this place big time as do the locals and the Irish staycation gang like ya who arrived by boat on the pier!!

Great pub
Aug 2020
Went here for pizza and a few drinks on Thursday 6th of August. Excellence adherence to COVID guidelines. Plenty of space between to groups, staff wore visors, cleaning down surfaces regularly and taking contact details. Pizzas were solid (you’re not in Rome). Great pints of Guinness. My wife had a espresso martini from their extensive cocktail list, and it was excellent. We were able to bring our dog in and he was given a right feed. Great spot. Hope to be back some day once things get back to normal.

The food and drink here was quite good, the place was really well laid out to adhere to social distancing guidelines and staff were very accommodating too. It's nice to support small local businesses. If in banagher, and looking for good atmosphere and drinks. This is a place to go!

Well worth visiting

Lovely food and staff. They have clearly put a lot of hard working into following Covid guide lines and have a huge markeet out the back of the pub with plenty of spaced out tables. The pizza was delicious and staff couldn’t have been nicer.

A rare gem hidden in Ireland heartlands
Aug 2019 • Couples
We were pleasantly surprised by this unexpected gem of a pub in this small town on the river shannon. Its quaint decor and dusty bric a brac make a welcoming and entertaining backdrop for the music and song that we are told go on nightly during the summer.they dont make em like this anymore.

The Shannon is alive with Hough's saturday night ceili.
Jul 2019
While travelling from Terryglass to Mullingar one recent Saturday night, we decided to stop in Banagher. We liked the look and sound of J.J.Hough's singing pub,so decided to pay a visit and my God was that a wise decision. we were greeted at the door by a lovely Gentleman who we later discovered was Michael Hough himself, the proprieter of this wonderful establishment. Well, we were lucky to get the last few seats available as the place was thronged with Saturday night revellers. There seemed to be a good mixture of locals and tourists enjoying the most excellent irish music that you could hear on a Saturday night. The athmosphere was friendly and the pints of Heineken were to die for, served by mannerly young staff. we were so impressed that we came back the next night for more of the same. For a great night out you will find it hard to beat J.J.Hough's singing pub in Banagher. I for one can't wait to return.

A place you must visit

During our tour on the river shannon we visited J.J. Hough's several times. Always good music! Sometime just with an accordion and piano. But sometimes even with someone to sing. We really enjoyed the time there.

Really good eclectic bar
Jun 2019 • Couples
What a place, after visiting some of the local archaeological sites, we took a chance and entered JJ Hough's. This is a really quaint and unusual pub with a great atmosphere and really good pizzas. It is well worth a visit if you are in the area.
