O'Loclainn's Whiskey Bar

The Pub is a squarish room, small and dark; inside O'Lochlainn's its always three  in the morning. The only light seems to come from the combined glow of dozens of bottles of whiskey - more than 75 different brands - ranged along the shelves, and the dull glean of metal drawers, that 80 or 100 years ago, held sugar, shoes, tea and livestock feed.

Steven Speilberg described this unique and authentic pub as one of the best pubs that he has been in.

The following is an extract from an article in the New York Times travel supplement (October 2012):
