Rooney Pub

Hello

We are traveling to Ireland on 3/13 and we are looking for a Rooney's

pub that we have been sent a picture of years ago. Is it true that it may

be located in Abbeyshrule? I can't seem to find anything online

Thank you

Two pubs in Abbeyshrule.

The Rustic Inn / McGoey's fails on the Rooney test.

Have been in the other pub but cannot recollect if it boasted a name over the door.

Try viewing it on Google maps and see if it compares with your photo.

There is a Rooneys pub ( at least there was about 3 years ago ) in Abbeyshrule. Its near the turn for Tighshinny.

Rooney's Pub got a positive mention (under The Built Environment) in the 2013 Tidy Towns Adjudicator Report for Abbeyshrule:

tidytowns.ie/u_reports/…20473.pdf

According to this, it's in the townland of Drumanure:

Must be located reasonably close to the church as it's also in Drumanure:

Abbeyshrule won the Tidy Towns Competition, as well as the European Entente Florale Award, in 2012:

Lovely little village, indeed. All credit to the local community for their obvious pride in their place.

Edit: No sure why that first link isn't working: Google: 'Rooney's Pub in Longford, Co Longford'.

Been trying to google but can't seem to find it. Can you tell me how long it would

take to drive from Adare to Abbeyshrule (see the pub) and then drive to Malahide

for the night? Is it doable?

Thank you!

You would be looking at 4.5 hours drive.
