An Pucan is now open off Eyre Square. We have live music daily from 9pm. On Fridays and Saturdays we have live bands down the back and on Saturdays we have a late night resident DJ.

We are known for our remarkable whiskey collection with over 180 different whiskies from around the world. It is a must-visit for all whiskey enthusiasts.

We offer an exceptional Food Menu for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Whether you are a tourist looking to experience an Irish Breakfast or some great fresh seafood or a local looking for fantastic lunch time value, we have it all. The large menu in An Pucan does not mean a sacrifice in quality so you will not be disappointed.

Sports is our passion: Rugby, Soccer, GAA, NFL, Golf, MMA, Ice Hockey, Cricket, Snooker, Sailing, Europeans, Olympics, anything and we mean anything tickles our fancy! We have two large drop down projector screens, and 5 plasmas throughout the venue so no matter where in An Pucan you are standing or sitting we have you covered.

Smoking Areas, Dj's, Jameson Features (our Stairway to Heaven & Jameson Piano are both famous) Signed Guitars, Friendly Staff, Craft Beer, Coffees, Teas, Craic.... We have it all!
