Fodor's Expert Review McDonnells

Belmullet Bars/Pubs
The perfect antidote to a day hiking the peninsula, this cozy, open-fire pub is known locally as the “lobster pot,” because once you’re there, there’s no getting out. It’s the heart of the community where guests linger longer than planned, and where tourists only stand out if they don’t join in with the conversation, dancing, or trad music session. Owned by the McDonnell family since 1942, the pub, in true rural Irish fashion, is adjacent to the family’s other business–-an undertaker's–-and so it has been the location of an occasional wake.
