We just had a drink here while passing through Banagher. It's a real old style pub with great Guinness and a lovely roaring fire.

If you find yourself in Banagher some evening do yourself a favour and drop into Houghs to check out the scene. Decent Guinness and madness that has to be seen to be believed. A great spot for a night out..
