The Irish Pub Company are the original Irish Pub design and build company who created the Irish Pub Concept along with Guinness. In 1990, Guinness and Mel McNally CEO of the Irish Pub Company were of the same mind that Irish Pubs were of historical value and presented a Great Global Business Opportunity.

We carried out an extensive research project and analysed the special aspects of good pubs; what made them the best areas for social inclusion.

From the research, the Irish Pub Company developed five main styles of Irish pubs:
~  the Country Cottage
~  the Brewery Pub
~  the Victorian Pub
~  the Gaelic Pub
~  the Traditional Irish Pub Shop

This is the story of the Celtic or Gaelic Style Pub

The Celtic Pub captures the character of the Gaelic people, well known for their dedication to merry-making, music and craftsmanship through the centuries. The rough-hewn doors, furniture and bar counters give a natural feel to the interior.
Hand-crafted metalwork fixtures complement the texture of the timber, adding a touch of finesse to the overall design.
Stories from the rich heritage of Irish folklore and mythology are illustrated in delicately painted wall murals, with their distinctive decorative patterns and earthy colours these are unique to Gaelic art and inspired by distinctively Gaelic art forms.
