Port Mahon

Port Mahon

The Port Mahon pub was architecturally designed in such a way that it was meant to attract patrons looking for a complete package of relaxation and entertainment. The upper level of the establishment meant for hosting gigs, the ground floor is equipped with all that would make the leisurely ambience that comes with the introduction of a pub. It is known to let the music/function room and the bar in the ground floor for hire (parties and such). The back yard which is open in summer gives one the absolute pleasure of nostalgia of mum’s Sunday brunch parties, what with the eclectic homemade food being served! During winter time, seating by the warmth of the fireplace warms the cockles of even the firmly closed hearts there are.

The Star

The Star

Attracting the likes of University grads and possibly even the occasional brave under aged rapscallion, the Star is a literal chip off the old block replete with a pool table and antique video gaming console – a rarity these days. Found just off the Crowley Road, the pub is a sure eye-catcher for its white walls and the bottle-green highlights of the window sills and the parapet. One can possibly spot local band members, their sound crew and even their families enjoying the slushy cider near the pub’s garden, mulling over the complexities of life as their sorrows are washed away thanks to the owner’s reassuring smile at the end of every pint.
