Tynan's Bridge House Bar
Tynan's Bridge House Bar Kilkenny Co. Kilkenny
Before a man named Tynan turned it into a pub in 1919, this 225-year-old building was a pharmacy and grocery shop. Behind the horseshoe-shaped marble-top bar, side drawers marked CLOVES, ALMONDS, MACE, and CITRON are vestiges of those days, as is the 200-year-old scale with its little set of cup weights. It's all lit by nostalgic globe gas lamps, and adorned with brass fixtures and silver tankards.
