About the property

Self-catering house to the rear of an old world pub and Award Winning Restaurant

Situated in the lake county, (good fishing area) an hour from Dublin, this is the ideal spot to relax or use as a base to travel from. Golf is big, with 5 golf courses within half an hour travelling distance. The house, once a barn, is to the rear of an Old World Pub, in a quite village. Our restaurant open's Wed-Sat 12.30 -8.30pm & Sunday, 1-8pm. The house is decorated quite modernly and we will do our best to help you enjoy your holiday.

We have just received a Bridgestone Award 'Best in Ireland 2017' so we are delighted with that.

'While too many bars serve peanuts and Sky Sports, this rural pub does fine food instead' writes TOM DOORLEY - IRISH TIMES

'not serving rare and exquisite dainties, it's serving the sort of food that most of us eat on a daily basis, but it's doing it very well. If we've arrived at a point where wholesome, well-made food can be found in pubs in small villages and towns around the country, then we have a reason to celebrate. IRISH INDEPENDENT

About Una Weir

The house is in the family since sometime in the 1800's, and until about 60 years ago it was a bakery for the local townspeople. The picture is us, the family with Johnny Depp, he came for lunch in November 2013. This was major excitement for us and the national media also. He said he'll be back because he thoroughly enjoyed his lunch and the relaxed atmosphere. When you sample a little of our life and ways you will understand the attraction to our village and our house.

Una Weir purchased this house in 1850

Why Una Weir chose Ireland

Originally the house was a bakery but when we came to live here, the house was a store for the beers for the bar. It took three refurbishments to make it what it is today. It is cosy, yet spacious, and decorated in a contemporary style but has some of the features of the old building. The view out the back window is the yard and gardens. There are old stone barns with red painted doors.

What makes this house unique

The house is at the back of the restaurant and bar, so you don't have to leave the property to get to bed after your dinner or spending time with the locals in the bar. The atmosphere in the bar is unpredictable in the sense that it might be quiet with just the turf fire to keep you company or there could be stories from one of the locals to entertain you. On Friday night (most weeks) there is music in the bar, where you are welcome to join in if you wish. It is a mix of sing-a-long, country, blues, pop and some Irish folk songs also.

june stay at Weirs

  • 5 of 5

Denis and I had a wonderful time at the Weirs. They were very welcoming, helpful and made us feel like we never wanted to leave. The accomodations were very good, the location perfect for touring around and the village was ideal for a visit to Ireland. We loved being able to get to know some of the locals and enjoyed listening to the impromptu singing in the Pub. The food in the restaurant was top of the line. I would recommend them to everyone.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I spent a week at the Weirs and had a fabulous time there. The house is very inviting, comfortable and extremely well-equipped! If you like to cook at home, you'll have everything you need, though you may decide to eat your meals at their restaurant, which is right next door. We ate there several times. Excellent, delicious food! It is a delightful place in every way, and Pat and Una are truly kind souls. Max, their sweet and well-behaved dog will fetch any stick you feel inclined to throw. My son loved playing with him in the back yard. Thank you for making us feel welcome and part of the wonderful community there.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Weirs for a week and it was a great decision. The house is cozy and comfortable and Pat and Una are great hosts.

The pub has hands-down some of the best food we've had in Ireland. Una's soup is a must-have.

Keep up the great work Una and Pat!

Multyfarnham is a quaint rural village, set in the lake county of Ireland. From Dublin heading west, you take the M4 west, then the N4 west. You pass the exits for Mullingar and you see Lough Owel on your left. A mile past there, you will see the sign post for Multyfarnham. There is a right hand turn, (at the Covert Pub), take it and keep left at the little round about. Less than 2 miles from there is Multyfarnham. When you enter the Village, Weirs Pub is in front of you. Our bordering counties are Meath, Cavan, Longford, Roscommon, Offaly and Kildare.

The area is very scenic and has plenty to offer. In our village there is a Franscian Friary dating back to the 11th century, the oldest working Franscian Friary in the world. Wheather you want to relax or have historical interests, want to go fishing or golfing, this area is ideally situated. Dublin is an hour away, where you can shop till you drop, go to the theatre or visit the many attractions our Capital City has to offer..

Other Activities: Bowling
