LARKINS SNUG

A SMALL PARTITIONED ROOM WITH A HATCH

A bit of useless Information!!

The dictionary definition of a snug: “a small private room or compartment in a pub”
Snugs were first built in Irish pubs in the early to middle 19th Century. It was a place where the wealthy went for the privacy. But, it was not only the well off visitors who would use these rooms. The snug was for patrons who preferred not to be seen in the public bar. Ladies would often enjoy a private drink in the snug in a time when it was frowned upon for ladies to be in a pub. The local police officer would stop in for a quiet pint, the parish priest would stop by for his evening whiskey, and lovers would use the snug for their clandestine visits.

FINEST INGREDIENTS

TENDER MEAT, FRESH SEAFOOD AND FRESHEST VEGETABLES.

The snug Music Room is cosy and private, it has photographs of local musicians on the walls, and on Sundays, is the place to come to listen to the best Traditional Irish Music. Our sessions regularly feature traditional and folk bands, we welcome musicians and there’s often a chance of an impromptu performance. You can relax with a steaming bowl of mussels, with home made brown bread and a pint of Guiness or one of our craft beers.
