BRANAGAN'S IRISH BAR
Branagan's traditional Irish pub @ the Tara Towers
The Tara Towers bar, Branagans, with its wooden floors and open fires is a homely place, where you can relax with friends or family, or enjoy a meal on your own with the newspaper.
On those cold days, find a cosy spot and warm up beside one of the warming, open fires.
And in the summer you can enjoy a drink on the outside patio.
Branagan's Pub plays live music and major sporting events are shown live on the large flat screens. The full bar serves both local and imported beers.
Branagan’s is a great venue for after-work drinks and family celebrations. Hot food and sandwich platters are available and large bookings are welcomed.
Bar Food is served daily from 3.00pm to 9.45pm.
A very popular bar food option is our Daily Special, which costs €15 and includes a hot dinner and a quarter bottle of wine, or a pint of beer or stout. The meal on offer varies every day, and includes options like: beef in oyster sauce, served with rice; shepherd’s pie with chips; or chicken curry.
A carvery is served daily from 12 noon to 3pm each day in the bar. The carvery menu changes daily with both a meat and a ‘fish of the day option’, served with freshly cooked potatoes and seasonal country vegetables or salad.
