Michael first stood behind the counter in 1948 when legend has it he left Delvin in County Westmeath as a young man seeking his fortune in Dublin, but he mistook the statue of Wellington as Nelsons Pillar and landed in Trim instead.
The pub is one of the oldest and the last remaining traditional pubs in Meath, having opened its doors first in 1904.
(Thomas and Michael Lenihan)
Today the pub is operated by his son Tom who masterminded a refurbishment to the premises in 2006, while still maintaining the ‘olde world charm’ of the pub. There are many nooks and corners where one can enjoy that quiet drink or meet friends old and new to either enjoy traditional Irish Music or their favourite sport on the many screens throughout the pub.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Quintessential Irish Pub, where there are no strangers – just friends who have not met yet!
