The highest pub in Ireland



Situated in Glencullen on top of the Dublin mountains, Johnnie Fox's is one of Ireland's oldest and most famous traditional Irish pubs.


In the early 1950's programmes of Irish music and story telling were recorded for radio on Sunday nights in Johnnie Fox's and broadcast to the nation from this elevated site.
In the 1960's Johnnie Fox's Pub was famous for the session - An Séisiún - travelling musicians would gather to play and trade songs with local people - a tradition which prevails to this present day with the music and song still emanating from the famous location, song and banter is always vibrating through the air.
Johnnie Fox's Pub was originally a small holding farm, the pub of today holds many aspects of the farm with dining areas named as "The Pig House" for example, also one can still see where the animals were housed in "The Haggart" area with it's small private rooms set off to the sides surrounding the court yard area.







This is my favourite place for a rich seafood chowder and a nice cold beer. It tastes so good!!!










I went there with my Hubby after our walk around the Powerscourt waterfall:-) 
If any of you will be visiting Dublin, this place has to be seen. Everything is left as it used to be, even cutlery is old fashioned. I think it gives that place so much charm. Here are some pictures to show you how unusual place it is.














Hope one day you will visit that place and make sure to tell me about it:-)

  1. I have been to Cork and Dublin. My brother and his wife live in Carlow. Ireland is a gorgeous Island, it is always green. Here in Sicily we have lots of mountains but the land is more arid and dry. I am now also following you on bloglovin'

    1. I love Ireland, the only thing what we miss here is better weather. I never went to Sicily, but I will definitely get there. I love Italy and your food, so some day i will definitely visit your Island
