News & Special Offers


At The World's 1st Self Catering Pub, Conroy's Old Bar we appreciate that times are hard for a lot

 of people at the moment. 

Everything has increased; mortgage payments, rent, fuel ,insurance, food,  

it's all shot up in price. 

Which in turn means that a lot of people are having to think twice about taking a well needed

 break or holiday and have a chance to recharge those batteries and have something  exciting to 

look forward to.

So, we've decided NOT to increase our prices.

Our prices will once again remain the same as in 2017.

Please note though, as the whole property is on the market for sale, we cannot guarantee any new owner will either wish to carry on renting out Conroy's Old Bar, or that they will not increase the prices.

So BOOK NOW to avoid disappointment.

Reduced Damaged Security Deposit & A Couple of Upgrades

As we've been having such considerate/respectful guests of late, we've decided to have a trial reduction of our Damage Security Deposit from €250 down to €150. 

We'd also like to mention, that when we have respectful guests making a return visit, we have found that we have had no need to charge these guests a damage security deposit on their return
A little respect goes a long way :)

In other news; 
Even though Conroy's Old Bar tends to attract a certain type of guest who prefers to "get away from it all"; and the kind that are not bothered with watching tv, we decided it was about time to upgrade the little portable T.V that has served us so well over the last decade or so. 
We now have a 32" HDMI flat screen tv, discreetly hidden away in the "chest of drawers." 
(the "chest of drawers" is one of the many things in Conroy's Old Bar that's not as it may first seem ;)

We've also recently upgraded the shower in the shower room

New solid fuel stove installed.

Guests are now even cosier with the addition of the new solid fuel stove. 

It's a lot cleaner and far easier to control than the open fire that was.

And guests are delighted by the fact that they can safely light a fire before going out and return later to a warm cosy fire that's still lit.

For those who haven't the first notion about lighting a turf fire, no worries, we're on hand to give you all the instructions you'll need.

We'll make sure you'll be leaving Conroy's Old Bar with plenty of turf fire lighting skills under your belt ;-)
