Conroy's Old Bar is a traditional Irish rural village bar, that has been lovingly and discreetly converted whilst retaining all of it's charm and character.
Especially suited to those who have a love of the great outdoors; who would like to experience the true beauty and tranquillity of rural Ireland; whilst staying in an authentic Irish former village pub. 

Situated a short drive from Lough Derg & the River Shannon.

On entering Conroy's Old Bar you could be mistaken into thinking it's business as usual...



So much so, that we advise our guests to keep the chain on the door; otherwise you could find at the bar, unsuspecting passers by, who are looking for a pint of the black stuff !

The bar area with its Liscannor stone floor,

highly polished mahogany bar, bar pumps, optics and the original till, has discreetly hidden behind it the fully functioning kitchen, where you can rustle up your own "bar food".
One comment our guests make time and time again is how they love having "breakfast at the bar".

The bar area is also home to the dart board and the skittles game.

The cosy lounge with its real turf/log fire,
is the perfect place to relax after a long day of taking in what this beautiful Lough Derg and River Shannon region of rural Ireland has to offer. There's also all the modern day conveniences (tv, dvd, stereo etc) although once again, they are discreetly hidden away.


Imagine......                       sitting down and relaxing....... 

I mean really relaxing... 

kicking off your shoes and toasting your toes in front of the crackling open fire... perhaps a game of cards, poker or dominoes... or even browsing through the vast selection of guide and information books and planning your next days adventure...




And so to bed... 

just off the lounge you will find the old snug, the perfect place for a good nights sleep, a cosy double bedroom with en suite wc.



The old cellar/barrel store,  

has retained its sloping floor; to aid the moving of the barrels and also it's original beer barrel delivery door.



Underneath the arch of the old barrel store,

you will now find a super king sized bed - which is only half a dozen steps from the bar !!!

Just off the back hall you will find the shower room, with a shower big enough for a whole hurling team ! 
The back door to the garden and covered smoking area is also off this hall. 

Please Note: Inside Conroy's Old Bar is STRICTLY NO SMOKING.

The large garden, has numerous seating and BBQ areas  with views over the Tipperary countryside. 

(please provide own BBQ fuel)  

There is also a selection of outdoor games; football, badminton etc, along with a couple of fishing rods, should you wish to try a spot of fishing on the near by Lough Derg or River Shannon.
To the side of Conroy's Old Bar you will find off road parking.

The garden is now also home to  
The World of Fairies, Fairy Garden, 
which is available for you to enjoy at your leisure. 

Children can while away the hours discovering the real life homes of the Fairy Folk. 
They can play inside Milo Burrows Hobbit Hole, sail away in the Leprechauns Pirate Ship, or design their very own Fairy doors on our huge chalkboards. 

Conroy's Old Bar is very family friendly.                                             

Cot's, bedding, high chairs etc, and a selection children's dvd's are all free to use and are available on request.

When booking a family stay, please notify us of the child's/children's ages, so we can make sure age appropriate equipment, bedding, toys dvd's etc are available. 

A babysitting service is also available.   

Being all on one level makes Conroy's Old Bar friendly to those who may be slightly infirm or have trouble with steps/stairs.     The shower is large enough to place a chair into, if it makes life easier, which we are more than happy to do. Unfortunately it has to be said that Conroy's Old Bar is not very wheelchair friendly, due to a couple of narrow doorways. 

Anyone wishing to book Conroy's Old Bar, who has specific requirements, please feel free to ask and we will do our utmost to accommodate.    

You will also find in Conroy's Old Bar, full central heating, and a washing machine.
All linen, towels, electricity and fuel for the fire are provided free of charge.
