J O’Connells Pub can be found on the Hill of Skyrne in co. Meath. This pub was made famous when Guinness used it for their Christmas advert. It is popularly known as ‘Mrs. O’s’ or ‘Yankee’s’ and has practically stayed the same for about a hundred years with its snug, the turf fireplace, and the authentic wood-paneled walls. The original whitewashed yard now shelters the smokers acknowledging the no-smoking rule! The only modern contraption allowed was a pool table as television broadcasts do not enter this establishment. A great atmospheric pint is to be had. It is located opposite a national monument called Skreen Church which is also worth a visit.
