A pub has been situated at No.86 Duleek St since the mid 1700`s Most notably owned by a renowned eccentric known as The Barber ( Thomas Callan ). A man made famous by his antics during World War 2 . He drank all the pubs whisky rations himself . Closing for business the day they arrived and reopening when he sobered up due to his supply running out . He repeated this procedure the next delivery day … thus beer was the only staple for his customers .. How things have changed . The current pub has one of the largest selections of spirits in the North-east.
The “Barbers” death cert , cancelled cheques and some artifacts are on display in the bar , beside the cozy fire .
The front of the pub is an old protected shop shop front , hiding one of Drogheda`s largest establishments. The beer garden is a local hot spot in the Summer months , nicknamed The Suntrap by regulars .
