The Suir Inn has been going since 1971 which means that it must surely be Ireland’s first “gastropub”, dating from before that concept was even a twinkle in the eye of whoever coined that ghastly phrase. The food has changed little in that time and it’s a great spot for culinary nostalgia with an occasional modern intrusion.
