Step in the door of Pot Duggan’s, in the pretty County Clare village of Ennistymon, and it’s ‘Hello 1964!’. Dublin’s Bodytonic crew went way out west, and then carved out a classic Irish country pub, the pub of your imagination, the pub you see in your mind when you think of the West of Ireland, when you hear the melody of A Song for Ireland. But Pot Duggan’s is a country pub with a vital difference: virtually every drink they sell is an Irish-made drink, from craft beers to the excellent locally roasted Anam coffee. Plus, the cooking is smart, appropriate, and modern: a stew; a hip toastie; a crisp salad. Expect to see photos of Pot Duggan’s in every single travel article about Ireland for the next several years. We awarded it the gong of Irish Pub of the Year for 2018.
