Johnnie Fox’s Pubs is one of the most famous pubs in Ireland and is visited by everyone from rock stars to royalty. The building used to be a small holding farm and areas within the bar called ‘the pig house’ and ‘the haggart’ remind people of their original use. Glencullen, the area around the bar, was a Catholic stronghold in the 19th century. Daniel O’Connell, the great Irish liberator, favored this venue as one of his ‘safe’ meeting houses. It is claimed to not only be the highest pub in Ireland but also the only pub to have a ‘grave’ in the wall. A beautiful pint can be enjoyed taking in the exceptional views towards Sugarloaf Mountain.
