Attraction details
Owner description: The property on Kilbride Street, known today as Hugh Lynch’s, has been operating as a public house since the early 1800’s. In the early 1900’s it was bought by the Williams Group, founders of the D.E. Williams Distillery, and run as a public bar and grocery, along with many other outlets in the Irish Midlands, from which they sold their growing whiskey brand “Tullamore Dew”.Hugh and Mary Teresa Lynch took over the pub in the 1960’s and the front bar remains largely unchanged ever since. The Premises went through a major renovation in 2008 adding a stylish new Bar downstairs and a function room upstairs. It is ideal for a private party and is also used for the live gigs. In 2010 an additional party room “ROUND” in the adjoining premises.The Pub stocks over 50 Irish whiskeys, each one tagged with a short description. The staff will be more than happy for you to examine the bottles before choosing which one you want to taste, or alternatively you can opt for one of the Tasting packages on offer.Hugh Lynch’s attracts a mix of older and younger clients. There is live music in the lounge every Thursday during the Summer Months, a band every Friday and on a Saturday night a local DJ plays a mix of chart music and old favourites to a lively crowd. It has won many awards over the last few years and it’s a great place to call into for a friendly chat and good whiskey during a visit to Tullamore.

“Hopping spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2012

Hugh Lynch's is one of my favourite bars. Its a decent size with two main bar and smoking areas, a disco bar and an upstairs function room and so while it has lot of regulars it sees fair few blow-ins and visitors to town. It always has a great friendly athmosphere. It gets lots of bands in the larger bar area on thurs, fri and some sun nites. The highlight of the year was the street festival this summer where they put an actual roof over the street(honestly) and closed it off at the end with a gig rig for a weekend of live music which generated a great buzz like a real festival - hope thats on again next year.

“Great night out in Hugh Lynch's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2012

Had a great night in Hugh Lynch's a few weeks back, there was a great buzz in the place and was definitely the busiest bar we visited in Tullamore. Looking forward to our next visit and one or 2 more of those tasty cocktails!

“Best Hen Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2012

My bridesmaids organised my hen during the summer and we visited Hugh Lynch's. The band playing were amazing and the finger food was top end - far nicer than I've seen served in any pub.
Emmet Lynch couldn't have looked after us better. Great atmosphere, gorgeous food and cocktails, mighty craic!
