Directions to Johnnie Fox's
Located in Glencullen in the Dublin Mountains, Johnnie Fox's refers to itself as the 'highest pub in Ireland'. It may seem a world away from the bright lights, but it's only a little over half an hour from the city centre and there are also regular buses. In fact, there's a handy direct service operated by Express Bus which will let you relax and enjoy your visit without worrying about the driving (you must book your seat - see here for details).
Or if you should find yourself next door at the Glencullen Golf Club, you can round off your Dublin Mountains experience with a meal and some great atmosphere at Johnnie Fox's just over the road.
Walk into Johnnie Fox's and you'll find yourself surrounded by a treasure trove of old-time knick knacks, the sound of traditional music and the mouthwatering aroma of classic Irish fare. Originally a smallholding farm, reminders of the site's origins remain with a dining area named 'The Pig House' and a courtyard called 'The Haggart' (where animals were once housed).
Once it was converted into a pub, things got interesting - it's said that Daniel O'Connell (the great Irish Liberator) was a regular when he lived hereabouts. Since then, Johnnie Fox's has become famous for its live music and dance shows (Hooley Nights), the eating and drinking and - of course - the banter.
There's live music every night, and also weekend day sessions which begin at 3.30 in the afternoon. Then there's the delicious menus - the À La Carte Menu is served in the 'Restaurant' area only and the Hooley Menu is available exclusively for the 'Hooley Night' Dinner & Show. Specially-designed set Group Menus are also available at 'Hooley Nights' (for all parties of 20+ guests). And if you've got younger diners to please, the Kids Menu was created just for 12-and-unders to keep them well-fed as they're being entertained.
