A Ballyhaunis pub featured among the ten best pubs in Ireland in 2022 by the Sunday World’s Pub Spy.
MacSiúrtain’s pub on Main St in Ballyhaunis was ranked second nationally.
The paper’s review of the establishment reads… “another boozer serving pints of Guinness for €4.70 when we paid a visit back in late March and each of our Commando’s remember the place fondly. The clientele were very welcoming, the barman was more than capable and the décor of the pub was very nice too.
The Old Commando enjoyed trawling through the wall of Mayo GAA memorabilia too and wondered will they ever get to add a picture of a Mayo team with the Holy Grail?
MacSiúrtain’s secured a rating of 4 from the paper.
The top Pub nationally, according to Pub Spy got the same rating of 4, and that was Drapers Tavern in Mitchelstown, county Cork.
Murtagh’s pub in Carrick on Shannon, county Leitrim was placed third nationally, also with a rating of 4. Pub spy reviewed the visit there saying “arguably this was the first time we had seen pubs packed since pre-Covid and boy oh boy were the customers living it up. We can’t say they were locals as Carrick on Shannon attracts a large portion of stags and hen parties but Murtagh’s pub was buzzing and it is an extremely well laid out pub with the finest of furnishings. Make sure to visit this pub if you’re staying in the area is all we can say. The pints of stout set us back €4.90.
