Our Guinness SNUG is a quaint semi–private room just a few steps away from our Main Bar. The SNUG features a 55” TV, speakers from our main stereo with volume control, booths and church pews. The room is private for your group. It is used weekly for birthdays, showers, meetings, luncheons, dinners, sports events and many more celebrations.
The history of the "Snug" began in Ireland in the late 19th Century. It was typically a small, very private room, with frosted glass window, set above head height, accessing the bar. You paid a higher price for your beer in the Snug, but nobody could see you. It was not only the well off visitors who used these rooms. The Snug was for patrons that preferred not to be seen in the public bar. Ladies would often enjoy a private drink in the Snug at a time when it was frowned upon for ladies to be in a pub. The local police officer would nip in for a quiet pint, the parish priest for his evening whiskey, and lovers would use the Snug for their clandestine visits.
