Cute 'old man's' pub

Great little pub with lots of nooks and crannies. Lovely staff and locals. I've been assured that the Guinness is great! A must visit any time of day.

The pub is located just outside the main gates to Castle Durrow and it was an amazing little country bar. The music (band) were fantastic and we had about 60 people from the wedding party in the pub and all had a great time

Had a few drinks in Bobs while attending a wedding in Castle Durrow. A very friendly and cosy bar with lots of character, well worth a visit!

Love this pub. Great setting on the riverbank. Good pint and wine from a barrel! Always sure of a chat and fun and sometimes surprise sessions.

Very interesting little pub with a fabulous outdoor area alongside the river... one of Ireland's originals! Only stayed for one drink as we were off to a wedding but will hopefully be back sometime for a longer visit..

We dropped in for a "pint" when staying overnight in the village. The landlord very generously provided us with a generous complementary platter of satay, chicken wings and other tapas! We enjoyed our treat in the adjoining garden overlooking the river.
