Francie Sheahan's Bar
Francie Sheahan’s is a family-run bar. It’s known locally as “Francie’s”, after Francie Sheahan who took over running the pub with his wife, Sheila, in 1962. It’s now in the capable hands of their children Dodo, Frankie and Noreen, who are always on hand to deliver a warm welcome to their customers.
The pub has been in the family since 1886 when Sheila’s great-granduncle owned the pub and it was known as “Murphy’s”. The walls are decorated like a hall of fame with old photos and there is a great collection of baseball hats on display which have been donated by customers over the years.
Located at the top of the Square, directly across from the Puck Stand, it offers a prime view of the goat being crowned every Puck Fair. Here’s a pub offering the best of both worlds: for a quiet drink during the day, choose the front bar or have a game of pool or darts in the lounge bar. By night, the front bar comes alive with the sound of live music. A great session is always guaranteed with a song and, sometimes, even an impromptu dance, or two. Music is year round Saturday and Sunday with live music Thursday to Sunday for July to September.
Francie’s is also a great sports venue for all sports fans. Enjoy the atmosphere and action of big sports events live on the screens in the front and lounge bars.
Call in anytime for a chat. Their doors open at 8.30am Monday-Saturday (12.30pm on Sundays). Customers are always well looked after by Francie Sheahan’s friendly staff.
