Fodor's Expert Review J. J. Hough's

Banagher Bars/Pubs

Travelers love Hough's, where on spring and summer nights there's usually a sing-along around the German piano. Try the cocktails or the house special, Shakalaka Boom, a mix of Irish whiskey and Bailey's cream liqueur. Note the walls decorated with business cards, testifying to the pub's popularity the world over. Side rooms lead to a beer garden with wooden chairs and tables. You can also join in card games with the locals, and there's generally traditional music on Saturday night. The owner, Mick Hough, has been known to launch into song himself on occasion.
