“Whiskey Galore”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Fantastic atmosphere in this specialist whiskey Pub. I don't remember seeing as many different whiskeys available in one place before. The bar was quite small and intimate so the second evening that we visited when some musicians had taken up residence was tight for space but not in an unpleasant way.

“A must for any visitor to Ballyvaughan”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

No visit to Ballyvaughan is complete without a visit to O'Loclainns Pub. This charming traditional Irish pub has a great welcome for everyone, whether on your first visit or as a regular. Locals, tourists and people who holiday regularly in the area all enjoy the welcome and the craic. There may be music, or just general chat, but the atmosphere is always great. The walls are lined with photos of famous international visitors who have found O'Loclainns. They also have a menu of unusual whiskeys and will advise you on the best choice. Make sure to visit, you won't forget it

“A gem of a pub!”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

This really is a wonderful old traditional pub, of the sort you rarely come across these days.
The interior is fabulous and the Margaret is a wonderful landlady !
No trip to Ballyvaughan would be complete without a trip to O'Loclainns.

“Great Irish Pub”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

The barkeep was great! She was friendly and funny!! This pub is the real deal and all the locals go there. There was a birthday party for a local man going on the night we were there and we all sang happy birthday! They served cake to everyone in attendance! Oh there was also free food offered! Amazing as this would never happen in the states!!
