Established over a century ago in 1910 our bar has sold many different items along with alcohol, over different periods we sold tea & wine, groceries, hardware, sheep dip and even dealt in sheep’s wool!. We are the longest operating pub owned by the same family so after 100 years its safe to say we know how pour the best pint of Guinness!
Our bar is bright and airy and is the perfect place to quench your thirst or to savour one of our fresh hearty meals. The walls and shelves are adorned with a selection of quirky antiques, we even have a pair of Eamonn De Valera’s glasses (an ex-president of Ireland). We screen all Live Sporting Events as they happen.
Our drinks offering is very wide ranging. We stock all of the major drinks brands on tap and in bottles. We also have a large and varied Craft Beer offering. We stock all of the Local Craft Beers on offer and also a wide variety of national and international beers. You probably won’t see a larger selection of whiskies in Westport than ours. We offer a massive range of Irish and Scotch Whiskies and also a fair few Bourbons thrown in too.
There is always a friendly atmosphere in the bar it’s never shy of a few locals, one or two who have been served by four generations over nearly 70 years. We have Live Traditional Music Every Friday night in the bar its always been a very popular session with between 2 and 10 musicians! with a wide range of instruments. Every Saturday night we have live music ranging from Rock to Country and sometimes Trad.
Weather permitting one of our nicest features is the seating to the front of the house, surrounded in a blaze of summer flowers. Here you can eat and drink and just watch the world go while catching the best of the Irish Weather.
So if your looking for somewhere to spend a few hours educating your palette with Delicious Food, Local Beers and Fine Old Irish Whiskies in the company of friends then Dunning’s is where you need to be.
