Blake's of the Hollow

Blake's of the Hollow Review

Among the several relaxed and welcoming old pubs in Enniskillen's town center, the one with the most appeal is Blake's, a place hardly altered since it opened in 1887. Its name derives from the fact that the heart of the town lies in a slight hollow and the pub's landlord is named William Blake. (Don't ask: he's not related to the English poet, painter, and engraver.) To celebrate its 125th anniversary in 2012, the bar produced an old bottle cap with the family coat of arms etched on to glasses and beer mats. The front bar, which eschews loud music and television, is best for local gossip and stories.
