About
The property on Kilbride Street, known today as Hugh Lynch’s, has been operating as a public house since the early 1800’s. In the early 1900’s it was bought by the Williams Group, founders of the D.E. Williams Distillery, and run as a public bar and grocery, along with many other outlets in the Irish Midlands, from which they sold their growing whiskey brand “Tullamore Dew”.Hugh and Mary Teresa Lynch took over the pub in the 1960’s and the front bar remains largely unchanged ever since. The Premises went through a major renovation in 2008 adding a stylish new Bar downstairs and a function room upstairs. It is ideal for a private party and is also used for the live gigs. In 2010 an additional party room “ROUND” in the adjoining premises.The Pub stocks over 50 Irish whiskeys, each one tagged with a short description. The staff will be more than happy for you to examine the bottles before choosing which one you want to taste, or alternatively you can opt for one of the Tasting packages on offer.Hugh Lynch’s attracts a mix of older and younger clients. There is live music in the lounge every Thursday during the Summer Months, a band every Friday and on a Saturday night a local DJ plays a mix of chart music and old favourites to a lively crowd. It has won many awards over the last few years and it’s a great place to call into for a friendly chat and good whiskey during a visit to Tullamore.

Covid restrictions are not in place. Customers all allowed to walk around without masks on them. Tables placed less than 2 metres apart. Nobody required to wear a mask. Customers standing at the bar waiting to pay with no mask and no masks worn to the toilet. "Manager" Tracy was rude and arrogant when spoken to with zero customer service skills. A table was booked on the 4th December for a table on the 19th. We were given a ledge to sit 5 people at with no space to suitably eat a meal that we booked 2 weeks ago. 3 people maximum would have fitted. Tracy told us if we didn't like it to leave. We raised concerns over the distance between tables and they were not the correct distance apart ie 2metres. Was asked if I wanted a measuring tape! Picture attached shows the back of the table beside us chair and a chair at our "table"/ ledge.
Ordering your burgers and chips off a card. Ticking the box with toppings. No menu at all. 1 hamburger and vegan burger is all that is being served.
Spoke again to the manager about some observations for example no mask wearing and people mingling between tables and over 6 to a table. Spoke about concerns it was a covid outbreak waiting to happy. Tracey didnt seem too concerned and said that was my opinion. Will not be returning and would not recommend their business.

Traveled with a group of hens, the workers were so friendly and polite, especially Seamus. Catered to all our needs. Got invited upstairs to a Comedy Show by the local Mayor. Nothing but laughs. Wanted to order food on Saturday but unfortunately was told there was no one on in the kitchen for food, that was the only minor thing. We went to super macs around the corner and then came back!!

A group of us went to Tullamore for a night out and we were treated excellently in Hugh Lynch's - spacious pub with space for dancing and space for sitting and having a chat!

just arrived in Ireland I decided to come and have a beer and a strawberry daiquiri .... What an excellent choice of establishment, the two young bartenders are smiling at your service despite the rush and very professional being myself a barmaid in my country and knowing the difficulty of the work I thank them for their kindness and their smile. I highly recommend this place

Best pint of Guinness in town. Love an ould skite of Hugh Lynch's Whiskey too when the pints are in. Always bring out of town visitors here. People who work here as sound as they come.
