“Old Fashioned Pub with Bicycle Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Bob's Bar is a 'must' stop-off if you're visiting Durrow, gathering either in the old-fashioned bar, one of it's unique 'snugs', or in good weather the river-side adjoining garden. And once you've had your refreshing pint, why not pop upstairs and check out the old bicycles in the Durrow High Nelly museum.

“Lovely pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Friendly staff, Nice garden when the weather is nice to sit outside and enjoy the local Irish music. They had a Céilidh on one of the nights so was a good night of dancing

“Must go to this pub!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

This pub came highly recommended during our stay at the Durrow Castle. The lovely atmosphere, pints of beer, and the friendly staff exceeded our expectations. Bob himself was there that evening and was the most friendly, welcoming person! We are so thankful that he took the time to talk to us and make us feel like a local!

“Like coming home....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

I took my father-in-law, who is a native of the area, to Bob's Bar for the first time last week. I met Bob and his lovely wife; had such a lovely evening and therefore went back a further two times the same week! The pub is instantly charming and welcoming, as are the hosts themselves. Upstairs there is a small vintage cycle (High Nelly) museum which is lovely, and gives you an immediate insight of bygone days of the locality. I learned a lot from Bob in half an hour. There is also an area set aside in the corner of the pub downstairs, documenting the gallantry of a local man who won the Victoria Cross. So, if you want an authentic taste of Ireland in a great pub, in a stunning location on a riverbank, with some local history to be enjoyed, Bob's your man. and Bob's Bar is your place!
