Built around the remnants of an old leather and shoe business (the products still gather dust on the walls), Dick Mack’s is a renowned and wonderful example of an Irish ‘old man’s pub’. There are countless little hidden snugs (private corners), open fires, and even a ‘walk of fame’ (a quaint version of the Hollywood Stars) outside the front door. Current owner Oliver MacDonnell has lived here all his life, literally. He was born above the pub. If you’re here during the day, there’s now a tourable brew-house out the back, too.
