    Best Host and Bar in Castlebar
    Visited this bar recently and can not praise enough. The Fear an Tí, Mick was on duty himself and was the perfect host. Chat, Drinks, Snacks, Taxi organised. This man is a rarity, has a welcome and a word for everyone! Will definitely visit again when we are down that way. Don’t miss out if in Castlebar…

    great pub in Castlebar
    If you want to visit an old, authentic, Irish pub in a small town with locals, this is the place. It is not a big place and there were about 6 gentleman in the pub watching the horse races. Very friendly people and Mick was very friendly. Good luck understanding half of what they say once they get going, the accent is thick and they talk very fast. This is a cash only bar. If you want to feel Irish for a few hours, go hang out at Byrnes.

    A bar not to be missed.
    This is a little gem in Castlebar. Mick is the best host ever. He made us feel so welcome as soon as we arrived and gave us lots of tips on places to go for the following day. Also serves the best pint!! A real authentic Irish bar. Thanks Mick.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went to Mick Byrne's bar in Castlebar on a Friday night in mid May before a football match in the town. The bar is on the Main street in the town. On the night in question the main man, Mick, was on duty and certainly knows how to run a bar. He was very witty and had time for everyone. The drinks were very good as was the ambience. Snacks, black and white pudding and cheese were also served free of charge, which is a great touch. The bar is very clean and tidy as were the toilets. We had a very enjoyable night, added to by the "man himself" and I would highly recommend. We'el be back.

The most loveliest pub and landlord from our visit to Castlebar. Thanks for the Taytos! Mick was a gentleman and made us very welcome.

An amazing bar. From the lads behind the bar to the owner we have never felt as welcomed anywhere. It is a must for anyone going to Castlebar.

This is just the best pub in Castlebar. The welcome by Mick is the best and can not be compared. He's a Mighty man that serves a great pint.

Searched this bar out because of the great reviews.
Really pleased we did as we spent some time here every night of our short break.
Michael, the owner, was a fantastic host and we were genuinely welcomed every time. His other barmen were also spot on!
To top the experience off the bar serves the best Guinness in town with some great locals drinking there too, the craic was top draw.

We hope to return in the future.

Great pub and great Guinness. Mick the owner is a gentleman as are the staff. Looking forward to my next visit to Castlebar so I can call in for a pint or a ‘meejum’. 10/10.
