The Rising Sun Tavern at The Garrandarragh, originally known as ‘The Rising Sun Ale House’, was built in 1644 during the Cromwellian era. The old world charm of stone and timber work throughout the building sets the tone of comfort and relaxation. From the time you park your car in the spacious private car park and enter the lounge you are greeted by friendly and helpful staff and of course the heart of a real Irish country welcome is the magnificent open fireplace or traditional stove. You can then relax beside either with a pint or enjoy some of our home cooked cuisine. This re-creation is a work of art with its wind-up bellows so you can stoke up the fire while relaxing with a fine beverage from one of the three bars or enjoying some of our home cooked cuisine.
