Bar 26 is another pub on our quest to conquer Ennis’ many public houses. We encountered bouncers at the door of this pub. There is a long narrow area inside the door of the pub. The area up near the bar was busy but the area at the front was quiet. I ordered our drinks, a Guinness and a Bud and we took a seat. There was a dj playing music and he for no apparent reason would turn up the music to unbearable levels and then down again! The pint of Guinness was only alright, not great. The pub itself is fine. It is most certainly a young persons place. There was a stag party there while we were inside and the groom was tied up and fell backwards and hit his head off the wall. A member of the party asked Jen for her lipstick and gave her a tenner for a nearly used stick! The groom to be was then given an Irish lads makeover!
The toilets were not to be used. Their condition was terrible. The floor was partly flooded and the tap didn’t work. Not what i would consider even useable. Bar 26 would not be a place i will consider heading back to if i am ever in Ennis again. Saying that it attracted a good crowd of people.
Pint rating: 6/10
Overall rating: 5/10
Final comment: Bar 26 is another of the vast number of bars in the town.
