Description
Giltraps Pub in Kinnitty, County Offaly, Ireland, is a landmark building in the centre of the picturesque village at the foothills of the Slieve Bloom mountains in the Irish midlands. Dating back to the seventeenth century when it was originally a hotel, Giltraps Pub is now a family run operation managed by the Clendennen family. Whether you're looking for an open fire after a days hiking or walking in the Slieve Bloom Mountains, attending a wedding at Kinnitty Castle Hotel, want to have the 'craic' or chat about GAA with the locals or you're simply looking for the 'perfect' pint of Guinness, then Giltraps is one of the best pubs / bars in the area to chose from. Giltraps has been awarded a number of accolades including Black & White Scotch Whisky Heritage Pub of the Year, James Joyce Pub of the Year Award and the highest recognition (5 stars) in Pub Spy Review by the Sunday World newspaper. If you are looking for accommodation in Kinnitty, whether you are attending a wedding in the nearby Kinnitty Castle or looking to explore to picturesque countryside, we also have Giltraps Townhouse & Glamping Accommodation located adjacent to Giltraps Pub which offers a range of deluxe ensuite rooms and glamping accomodation to suit everybody's needs.
