Welcome to Lily Finnegan's

Lily Finnegan old photoLily Finnegan's is a traditional old style pub situated close to the coastline and just 5 kilometres from the village of Carlingford. Hidden deep in the Cooley peninsula, this little gem hasn't lost any of its authenticity over the years, from the old flagstone floor to the layers upon layers of paint on the ceiling this pub is the only pub in the Cooley peninsula which can truly say it has been untouched by all the recent building boom and retains all of its genuine untouched old world features. A beautiful open fire lights the whole bar up and for the many who enjoy the beautiful walk or cycle around the coast it is a welcoming sight indeed at the end of their travels.
