Garbhan and Mary Kavanagh of D. O'Shea's Bar

D. O’Shea’s Bar

One of the iconic images of Sneem, D. O’Shea’s has been a Public House for over half a century and for much of this time was owned by the O’Shea family. In 1996, it was bought by Mary and Garbhan Kavanagh and extensively renovated inside. They have retained the colourful exterior which has been much photographed and used in advertisements and postcards. Inside is cosy and relaxed, serving the best of bar food throughout the day.

There is an extensive terrace out the back of the pub with fabulous views of the Sneem estuary.
