An Spailpín Fanach (the Migrant Worker) was founded in 1779 across the street from the Beamish & Crawford Brewery (which ceased production in March 2009). It is a traditional Irish bar offering live music Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. “a lovely soothing place with low ceilings, exposed brick walls, flagstone floors, fireplaces, a simple wooden bar and woven rush seats”. (Quote from Frommers Ireland 2009). Its cosy, lively atmosphere makes it popular with tourists and locals alike.
