The Original Durty Nelly’s || view website
Durty Nelly’s can truly be described as one of Ireland’s landmark pubs. Nestling in the shadow of the magnificent Bunratty Castle and the adjoining Folk Park, it is the first stopping off point for generations of visitors to Ireland arriving at nearby Shannon Airport.
Perhaps the biggest single charm of Nelly’s – as it is known locally – is the fact that it’s a meeting place for both locals and tourists alike, and the interaction between the two is what makes it such a unique Irish pub.
You’ll typically find groups of overseas visitors and locals chatting away as if they were lifetime friends, swapping stories or asking after friends or relatives who’ve settled around the world – or stayed at home in Ireland.
Over the years, it’s hosted a host of global celebrities drawn from entertainment, politics, the arts – all of them lured inside our doors by the legendary hospitality of Nelly’s.
You can see from the hundreds of badges that adorn the wooden beams of Nelly’s that we’ve had visitors from all over the U.S. and the world – with a particularly strong connection to the countless police and fire departments who’ve visited us over the years.
Indeed, there’s a particularly poignant shrine at Nelly’s to those who bravely gave their lives during 9/11, and it’s one of the first parts of the pub that’s sought out by our many overseas visitors.
Apart from the warm Irish welcome that you’ll find at Nelly’s, you’ll also enjoy the finest, freshest local produce – whether you’re just dropping in for a snack or staying for a fine dining experience.
