PJ O’Hares Pub, Tholsel St., Carlingford, Co. Louth, Ireland
In the heart of Carlingford Ireland is PJ O’Hare’s Pub known for their oysters! The joint was packed to the gills but after our long hike up Slieve Foye, we squeezed our muddy selves up to the bar, ordered a few pints and found a busy but wonderful waitress to take our order. Half a pint later our menagerie of gastronomical wonders arrived. Fresh oysters topped with garlic butter, herbed bread crumbs and fresh Parmesan-fresh crab claws swimming in a sea of garlic butter-chicken gourgons (chicken strips we Americans call em’ ) and I could not resist ordering the Tex Mex Nachos. All winners to these two hungry, wet, mucky mountaineers! If ever you make your way to The Emerald Isle you MUST put Carlingford , and especially Pj’s on your list of stays…. It’s historic ruins, multiple award winning eateries, charming downtown area and opportunities for outdoor exploring on land and sea are definitely worth a weekend visit!
