The last pub we visited on our flying visit to limerick City was Flannery’s bar on Denmark Street just up from Nancy Blakes. There was loads of bouncers at the door and when we walked in we realised that it was another pub with a huge smoking area. This is at the front before you go into the bar area. It was hard to move when we were there. I managed to get to the bar and in fairness there was plenty of staff on but it took me a while to bring my drinks back to where we were standing. I had a pint of Guinness and Jen had a bottle of Coors light. The Guinness was a good pint and it was even better considering how busy the staff were serving me. It was hard to make a judgement on the pub because it was so crowded. I noticed there was an upstairs and people were standing on a balcony.
The toilets i used were downstairs in the pub. They were a good size and were well kept. Flannery’s was a grand pub to visit but i found it to be too busy for my liking. My days of squashing in somewhere with the faint hope of getting to the bar are long gone. That said however, this pub is obviously very popular and does very good business. I wouldn’t be rushing back personally but thats because its not my kind of pub. If it sounds like yours, check it out.
Toilet rating: 7/10
Pint rating: 6.5/10
Overall rating: 6/10
Final comment: Flannery’s is a type of superpub that thrives in the heart of Limerick City.
