If you’ve always liked the idea of pulling pints, Conroy’s Old Bar is the world’s first self-catering pub that you can now hire through Airbnb for a unique holiday experience.

This authentic Irish boozer will appeal to those who love the great outdoors as it’s located in the picturesque rural location of Aglish, in North Tipperary.

You wouldn’t know that it’s been converted into self-catered accommodation at first glance, with all the usual features of a traditional village pub remaining, including the original polished mahogany bar and pumps that actually neatly conceal the kitchen area.

For a cosy night in, sit in the lounge with a toasty open log fire and play a game or two of darts, skittles or board games and rustle up some traditional pub grub in your fully functioning kitchen.

The accommodation caters for four people, with the old snug turned into a double bedroom, complete with en suite, while the old keg store is a generous king-size room that’s still got the beer-barrel delivery door and sloping floor intact. The accompanying en suite has a huge shower.

What’s more, you’ll get access to your very own beer garden with plenty of seats for guests, a barbecue area and outdoor fire where you can relax and take in the breathtaking views over the Tipperary countryside.

While there’s no alcohol licence now at Conroy’s Old Bar, you can still get a pint at the nearby village pub and if you’re travelling with kids you can also book them in to become a ‘Fairy Folk Helper’ for the day in the World of Fairies Workshop, which sits next to Conroy’s Old Bar.

Considering it’s a one-off experience, the hire of the pub is a pretty affordable €100 per night. For more information on booking a stay, click here.
