The Garrandarragh Inn @ The Rising Sun

Eating OutAccommodation


I have visited accommodation providers all over Ireland and they all have something great to offer their guests, I mean I wouldn't have chosen them otherwise. I particularly liked the Garrandarragh Inn at the Rising Sun, especially after learning that this place was originally built in 1644, I mean in context, that was only 80 years after the birth of Shakespeare! Offering everything from a single room to a deluxe double, the owner and his more than capable team have quite simply created a place to please all budgets and tastes. Having been shown round by the pub's manager, I could clearly tell that not only her, every member of her staff really does care about the place and that in the hospitality trade is quite rare. Without skimping at all, the rooms I was shown were of a very high standard and luxury seems to come as standard here.


You don’t have to be staying in the Garrandarragh Inn to eat at the Rising Sun, non residents are more than welcome here also. Located just off the M9, Mulinavat is a quaint village which has grown over the last couple of centuries, growing from only a few houses in 1801, to a thriving community today. Very much part of that community, is the Rising Sun Pub, offering both a pub environment, for those just looking for a bowl of Chowder, or their relaxed restaurant, for those looking for something a bit more substantial meal. The team here at this popular pub are very friendly indeed and I could have sat there for hours talking to them, but of course I had to go, but not before they looked after me with an amazing home baked scone, accompanied with fresh Farmhouse butter and tasty and generous portion jam & cream.
