Conroy's Old Bar

The World's 1st Self Catering Pub  -  The Pub With No Beer 

Conroy's Old Bar for Families

Conroy's Old Bar is COMPLETELY DRY of alcohol....

So, if your looking for a family holiday that's a little bit different,
a holiday at Conroy's Old Bar could be perfect....

So many "family holidays" nowadays cater for the child's every need  - 
which is great, but what about the teenagers, or indeed the parents ?.....

At Conroy's Old Bar there's something for EVERYONE !

How many of us have taken the children on a break away, only to find that they (the parents) spend all of their time in a ball pool/swimming pool or amusement park, staying in generic accommodation, that does nothing to enthuse the parents at all ?

Well, you may not think that a "Holiday in a Pub" would be the answer, 
but you may be pleasantly surprised to find, it may well be !!!

What's available for the Children ?

At Conroy's Old Bar we don't charge for any extra children's equipment, 
like cots, bedding, high chairs etc..

Children's Workshops at Tinkerin Myndz.

At the end of our property is the Tinkerin Myndz HQ and it's wild west courtyard. 
A unique place where children get to be themselves and let their imaginations run wild.

Tinkerin Myndz let's them be themselves in a unique and fun environment. 
The wild west themed workshops are a children's favorite. Children really do love fancy dress and with Indian tipi's, panning for gold, tin can alley and making Indian head dresses, there's plenty to keep them occupied and with so many different workshops available: from making slime, to baking, to experiments, the children will be spoilt for choice. 
Guests of Conroy's Old Bar have Priority Booking for any workshops that are available at their time of stay.

Our ever growing menagerie.

Children also have the opportunity to meet our  very friendly pets. 

They are all very calm and very used to being petted.  

We have 3 rescue hens, 2 rabbits Jessica (black) and Bonnie/Bonbon (grey) and a very timid, but loving guinea pig called Ed, as well as our adorable Labradoodle Lilly.  

With prior notice children are welcome to help us collect the chickens eggs.

And for Teenagers ?

Conroy's Old Bar has become a very popular holiday destination for families with teenagers. 

Families finding that their children are at "that age" when it's longer "cool" to be going on holiday with their parents, seem to have found the solution in having one last holiday with them, 
by staying at Conroy's Old Bar.
Teenagers can't seem to resist the thought of spending their holiday "in a pub" (albeit a "Pub With No Beer") 
and the family having it all to themselves.
Teenagers love taking the role of "Landlord/Landlady", having darts and skittles tournaments 
and cooking alfresco on Conroy's very apt beer barrel BBQ. 

There's also mountain bike hire available in Portumna Forest Park and fishing boat hire available on Lough Derg & the River Shannon, we even have some fishing rods and life jackets available, if you fancy trying to
 catch your own supper....

Pony & horse riding is available close by, as well as kayaking on Lough Derg.

And For The Parents ?....

As with every family holiday, knowing the the children are happy, makes the parents happy.
Time and time again guests of Conroy's Old Bar comment on 

"what great quality time they have been able to spend together",

"how they have been able to really relax, and do things at their own pace",

"how much the children just want to stay at Conroy's and not go out for the day",

or, if they're out, 

"how much they just want to get back to Conroy's and enjoy more playtime".

On top of all that, parents get to experience something for themselves, 
a break away in unique accommodation. 

All in all, it's great opportunity to have a wonderful holiday together
