The staff are very friendly here and up for a chat. They are only able to offer pizza as a food choice so don't expect too much

We found Jack Duggan's Bar on our way to our B&B while on vacation. We didn't have dinner while there and stopped just for a pint. It was exactly what we expected of an Irish Pub. The manager and patrons were very friendly and the Guinness tasted great. This became "our" pub for the next three days of our stay.... More

It was a lovely bar, the decor was geared towards the 'wild colonial boy' and very atmospheric and relaxing. The host was very friendly and attentive. LIve Irish music on the weekends, which we unfortunately missed!. Would recommend... More

I visited Castlemaine in September 2013. When I called to Jack Duggans I was very disappointed, there was no atmosphere, the barman /owner was outside the bar drinking a pint and watching american X factor. The guinness was not very good. The only food available was re heated frozen pizza. The pub appears to have been redecorated sometime in the... More
