The Blackstick’s Pub

The Blackstick’s Pub

The Blackstick’s Bar in O’Callaghan’s Mills – an old-style pub dating back to the mid 1800’s, is well-known for Irish traditional music sessions and some very famous musicians have shared their talents there – the likes of Mary McNamara, Pat O’Connor and Kevin Carey.

Singing nights are held regularly – while there’s also a lovely area in the front of the pub with benches and seats so you can enjoy the long, light evenings.

Visit at night as this pub only opens when the sun starts to fade.


  • Complimentary Car & Coach Parking
  • Regular Traditional Music Sessions

One of Ireland’s most famous sights, the Cliffs of Moher are entirely vertical and the cliff edge is abrupt. On a clear day the views are tremendous, with the Aran Islands etched on the waters of Galway Bay. From the cliff edge you can just hear the booming far below as the waves crash and gnaw at the soft shale and sandstone.

With a due-west exposure, sunset is the best time to visit.
