O'Donnell's is a long-established public house and very popular with locals and visitors alike. The proprietor, Johnny O'Donnell, offers a warm welcome to all-comers.
"Finest pub in the northern hemisphere. Charming owner, charming customers. Probably a good thing I live a few thousand miles away because I would never leave this place." Steve, Colorado
The pub is unique in that it has appeared in not one but two feature films in the past few years. In the recent Jim Sheridan directed film "The Secret Scripture" it kept its name but became a drapery store.
In a previous German film "Between Heaven and Here" the pub-front became Flanagan's.
O'Donnell's regular music nights include the Open Mic on the first Friday of the month.

History: Part of O’Donnells pub and the private residence adjoining formed at one time an alms house. The house was built c.1780 by Sarah Fownes Tighe (1743-1820) to care for the widows of the district. Lacemakers from Brussels were brought in to train the ladies in the art.
