O’Lordans Irish Pub dates from 1867 when the old stone building first appeared on a map. Originally a foundry, the building was bought in 2005 by David and Wendy Johnson. They had a vision for the perfect Irish pub. The raw wood beams, plank flooring, stone hearth, Irish mementos and music all contribute to this spirited pub.
This is where you’ll find classic Irish food, whiskey and beers. Try an O’Hara’s Irish Red with an Irish egg, or a shot of Black Bush, and you’ll feel like you’re kissing the Blarney Stone. There’s also American fare on the menu. The petite filet and duck Marsala are splendid, and the full bar serves up delicious cocktails. There’s even a kids menu. But hey, since you’re in Ireland why not go all the way. A hefty banger dog, packed Reuben or crunchy beer battered cod sandwich all are delicious. You don’t need the luck of the Irish here. You found it by walking in the door of this Irish gem in the country.
When the weather is good, the second floor porch and the stone patio are great places to people watch. The Happy Hour drafts, wine specials and munchies are worth checking out. Looking for a late breakfast? Well O’Lordans is serving those rashers, corned beef hash or black and white pudding to start your day from 11 am-3 pm.
How about tapping those feet for a traditional Irish music session. There’s an Irish Trad every second and fourth Wednesday. Bring your tin whistle, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, banjo or accordion and join in. It’s great fun and you just may end up singing Molly Malone.
