  • Sorry for confusion Marie. That should have been 5 stars. I'm must have entered it wrong. Not too savvy on the tech! Your pub is a real time capsule through the ages.....from 1797 no less. I was passing through your town and was drawn to your establishment. Very impressed. The genuine article. Not one of these pop up pubs with mock heritage. The French who went through Mayo in 1798 obviously introduced your Emporium to good wine. Keep up the Tradition! Paddy Mac.
  • I visited this amazing pub in October 2018, with my Cousin from America. We both have shared family roots in Mayo. We both enjoyed looking at the photographs of Swinford in the past,along with interesting historical artefacts, placed around the pub, showing Ireland's rural past. We really hit gold when we met the pubs owner. This lovely,affable man showed us the courtyard where he has a collection of historic vehicles and historic icons from Ireland's past, such as an old Telefon box and the original pump from the pub. My Cousin and I felt privileged to have such a knowledgeable and entertaining guide inform us about the history of Ireland that he is so passionate about preserving.
