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.

Mary T's Bistro

A lovely cosy little place to meet friends and chat and have coffee (coffee and scone only €3!). Free parking nearby. Friendly staff. Tasty lunches. What's not to like!

I went for a few drinks with friends - lovely atmosphere. The staff were particularly impressive. The decor is lovely and I really enjoyed the music. Great spot for a night out.

The new layout and furnishings are very good and relaxing, the front bar does much better Guinness than the main bar but that's OK they are very close...

Great pub. Met friends in August and went to Hugh Lynches for a pint and a chat. Newly renovated recently and really nice decor.

The atmosphere and welcoming friendly staff are part of the whole experience its a very cosy and intimate location . The addition of a coffee shop with light meals is an excellent add on to a...

Flexible in that they will allow you to take in your own outside BBQ etc. keep an eye out because they have some good live music. Was at Paddy Casey a few months back - brilliant setting great.

Booked for a party of 40 ish for a 75th birthday, and it was fantastic. Party included pre-teen to pensioners. Emmett arranged music to suit crowd. Had photo's on a USB stick, did a slideshow using Emmett's laptop, that went down well. Great to have own space, own toilets, own smoking area (outside). Food was grand, reasonable price and plenty... More

It does good music at the weekend and is a great late night club on a weekend night. A place for all age groups to meet. It does a great off license which is reasonably priced. Look forward to going there soon.

Seen The Riptide Movement here a couple of months back and both the gig and the venue were great. Gig venue is relatively small but perfect to see your favourite bands ( if you don't mind standing room only ). Staff were friendly and service was good. Can't fault it.
