Ever dreamed of being the landlord of your very own Irish Pub? Well now you can…and what’s more this traditional Irish Pub is ideally located along Irelands Newest Iconic Trademark, the Wild Atlantic Way in the Village of Castlemaine, birthplace of the Wild Colonial Boy and where the Dingle Peninsula meets the Iveragh Peninsula. The scenery in this area has been described as ‘like stepping into a picture book’. Close to the Ring of Kerry and only a 15-20 minute drive to the bustling tourist town of Killarney this is the perfect base for exploring by day if you so wish while experiencing a slice of authentic Irish Village life! Oh…and did we mention its less than a ten minute drive to one of Irelands most famous beaches …Inch Beach…where an Inch is a mile! Stay here and you will never run out of places to see or things to do while in the evening coming back and relaxing in your very own Pub!
Called after Jack Duggan this Pub dates back to 1903 and walking into it you would you would think that you are entering typical traditional Irish Village Pub full of Character and Charm. In fact this Pub only closed its doors to the Public in 2017 and it has remained the same since. The only thing that has changed are the living quarters which have undergone an extensive refurbishment. A more comfortable, warm and cosy place to stay you will not find and that’s not including the Pub.
The accommodation includes the Bar with open fire, pool table, T.V.s and multiple games to choose from, a fully functioning separate kitchen, Kegs room with top of the range cooling system, a separate lounge room or chill out room as we like to call it with T.V. and fire, four double bedrooms and one twin room sleeping 10 people in total (cot and kids bed also available), two fully refurbished shower room, one fully refurbished bathroom and also a separate w.c.
This Pub is ideal for any family or group of friends who wish to spend some time together just getting away from it all or exploring the region. Also within a two hour drive from Jack Duggans Pub you will find 43 Golf Courses including many of Ireland's top 20 courses e.g., Killarney, Ballybunion, Tralee and Waterville making this also an ideal base for a Golf Trip. Or indeed for the climbing enthusiast we are within easy reach of the McGillycuddy reeks, Ireland highest mountain range…the possibilities are endless!
Castlemaine Village itself offers a local Store perfect to pick up your convenience items and and if you are tired after a long day why not stroll across the road to eat in Knightley’s Bar and Restaurant. We also recommend ordering your groceries online prior to arrival and getting them delivered by the local Supermarket saving much time and effort.
