Step off the beaten tourist path...

Step back in time...

If you're looking for a unique Irish holiday, where your accommodation is an experience in itself,
in a place where time has literally stood still, and where a slice of rural Irish social history unfolds before your very eyes, then how about booking a stay in Ireland's most famous and unique self catering accommodation?..

Conroy's Old Bar is,

Perfect for a honeymoon, mini-moon, baby-moon, anniversary or romantic getaway
where you can shut yourselves away and spend cosy nights by the roaring turf fire, or making the most of  the fabulous sunsets and star gazing at our amazing view of the night sky.
Perfect for family holidays,
where spending "quality time together" is important. 
Whether it's playing board games, hunting for fairies in the fairy garden, playing shops/landlord/landlady with the original till full of real money or perhaps even holding your own darts tournament, there's something for whole family.

Perfect for a couples relaxing get together,
where you can switch off, wind down and relax in this rural haven, just chilling out in front of the fire, or perhaps out in the garden having a BBQ. 
There's nothing better than having a proper catch up with good friends.

Perfect for Sober Holidays, 
where you have the unique atmosphere of a traditional Irish pub, but none of the temptation of a licensed bar.

When booking a stay at Conroy's Old Bar, 
you are booking to stay in a converted original Irish village bar, 
which no longer holds a liquor license and is completely "dry" of alcohol, making it the perfect quirky holiday accommodation for families.

Conroy's Old Bar is The Pub With No Beer, 
and is now self contained, unique and quirky
self catering holiday/vacation accommodation, where time has literally stood still and where you have the whole place to yourselves.

As we live next door, we are on hand for help and advice should you need it. 
We have travelled around Ireland extensively ourselves, so we have lots of local and national hints and tips available, especially if you wish to go off the beaten path.

Sleeps STRICT MAX 4+cot.

Before booking, please read our Terms & Conditions.

* A self catering property is the equivalent of a vacation home, where you rent the property and you look after yourselves; 
cooking, cleaning, laundry etc.

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's Hidden Heartlands, whilst staying in an authentic Irish former village pub, where time has literally stood still.
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. A games night makes for a great evening's entertainment.
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 & R.Shannon region of rural Ireland has to offer. There's also all the modern day conveniences (HDMI flat screen tv, 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 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.

Under the arch of the barrel store is now home to a super king sized bed.

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. 

You will also find Conroy's Old Bar has full central heating, and a washing machine.

All linen, towels, electricity and fuel for the fire are provided *free of charge.  (*fair usage limit).

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, or sail away in the Leprechauns Pirate Ship, perhaps design their very own Fairy doors on our huge chalkboards.  

Family Friendly.

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.

Spectrum friendly children's workshops are available next door to Conroy's at Tinkerin Myndz More details are available on their website, just click on their name.

Disabled Access.

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.     

Arrival & Departure.
Conroy's Old Bar will be ready for you on your day of arrival from 4pm.

We will then give you a few pointers on the more quirky elements of Conroy's, that will hopefully make your stay a more memorable one for all of the right reasons, before leaving you to enjoy your stay.
