Lynotts, Cashel

You might well drive past this ‘micro-pub’ without knowing it’s even here but it is well worth seeking out.  A pub since the 1800s and fitting no more than 30 people (at a push!) their motto is ‘no radio, no TV, no phone, no food’ but the atmosphere makes up for this in buckets!  You will often find live music here on a Friday night.


Look out for the finger!
