This pub situated on Borris' Main Street in Co.Carlow is full of rustic charm.
This authentic shop style pub with a traditional shop layout, counter also serving a pint of Guinness is as most shop style pubs were laid out.Still functioning as a pub / shop / hardware its shelves, walls & ceiling heaving with hardware bits & bobs.It was refurbished following a fire a number of years ago by Angela Murphy Design Associates & I have to say, what a great job!!It looks just as it should be, or as it was!!I have been here a good few times, I love sitting in the shop side amongst the many hardware items for sale,wellies hanging from the ceiling, paint rollers, hammers, saws, sweeping brushes, shelves stacked with nails, screws & lots of other hardware stock.It's such a cosy pub & with it’s brightly painted bar counters & rich warm timber.The back bar is simple in design, mainly shelving to hold all the shop items & this section of the pub is mostly bar counter, where shop & pub combine seamlessly.Simple schoolhouse style & cooley pendants light up this area & add to the atmosphere.There is a Victorian style lounge are next door with more comfortable style seating.The shopfront in O'Sheas is a beautiful simple, elegant style, with some original style features such as the window bars & also the built in canopy blind which rolls back into the fascia, supporting arms resting on the side of the shopfront.Overhead 3 gorgeous decorative swan neck lights add a touch of Victorian splendour to this lovely shopfront.The welcome is always warm in O'Shea's as is the decor!
