Overview
More
Paud O’Donoghue’s Forge and Swan’s Bar is owned and run by the Swan family. It is situated in the historic and picturesque little village of Curragha in the Royal County and is one of Meath’s oldest music venues. It is a place where people and music from different generations and cultures meet to create one of the most unique Irish Pub experiences Ireland has to offer.The secret to our success is simple; to look after each person, not as a customer, but as an old friend, and with good drink and good craic, they’ll always come back. So whether it’s a quiet pint in front of a roaring open fire; a mouthwatering visit to our old sweet shop; soaking up the craic, music and banter in our bar; enjoying old-time waltzing and jiving in Patsy’s Lounge; visiting Paud O’Donoghue’s historic forge, or simply watching the world go by in our beergarden, Swan’s of Curragha is the place to be.
