Hargadon's

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Hargadons is one of those special places, for a simple, but profound, reason.The first time you step through the doors, and take a first look at this historic pub, is one of those moments that you never forget. The impression which the sagging shelves, the hidden snugs, the flagged floor, all of them blessed with the patina of age, all of them bathed in that curious half-light, never leaves you. You seem to have stepped out of the real world of O’Connell Street in Sligo, and stepped into somewhere altogether extraordinary. When the photograpehr Mike Bunn published his beautiful book, “Ireland – The Taste and The Country” more than 25 years ago, he wisely included both a photograph of Hargadon’s, and a valuable piece of advice: “Stop awhile to visit Hargadon’s pub in O’Connell Street: a quick pint – or two if you’re lucky – would be in proper order.”But Hargadon’s hasn’t stood still over time, even though that may appear to be the case. Instead, it has moved with the times, and introduced delicious food, so when you are enjoying that pint you can also enjoy lovely local foods – Lissadell seafood chowder; Killary harbour crab salad; loin of Coopershill venison; Clarke’s farm ribeye steak. And there are fine wines from the family’s own estate in the Languedoc to enjoy with the dishes. “A modern tradition” is how they describe what they do in Hargadon’s, and that’s just right: tradition and modernity are comfortable bedfellows in this historic destination.
