About Us

Established in 1795 The Irish Arms is one of the oldest pubs in Ireland. Renowned for being a great place to eat and drink, we are situated in Lisdoonvarna, County Clare, a town famous for its Spa, Matchmaking Festival and of course the song made famous by Christy Moore! The Irish Arms has been owned and run by the McNamara family since 1990. We offer top quality rooms, food and drink all year round. The Irish Arms is a perfect place to stay on your break, either just to relax or to base yourself for days of sightseeing with so many famous attractions on our doorstep. If you are not up for a busy day you can have a relaxing drink in our comfortable bar and on sunny days our beer garden to the rear is a real sun trap. Food from our extensive menu is served all day and we also offer a wine list to accompany your meal. We would like to extend a real Cead Mile Fáilte to all of our guests and look forward to seeing you at The Irish Arms soon. The Irish Arms offers top quality rooms which all have ensuite bathrooms, t.v., hairdryers and tea/coffee making facilities. Rooms are available as double, twin bed or single. We also have two family rooms, subject to availability, which can comfortably sleep 2 adults and 2 children. Please contact us by email at or by phone at +353 (0) 65 7074207 for rates and availability.
