    Roundwood Inn: Germany calling

    by Ruai Written May 16, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Stumbled across this place one day while passing through Roundwood, a village near Glendalough popular with walkers (Its surrounded by good walking!).

    Its an old Irish pub with German characteristics and food! Oddly the combination works and the food is damn good. I really liked the schnitzel!

    I later learned that the owners are German and have been in Roundwood since 1980. Far from being an unknown find of mine, this place is well known to many as a good pitstop for hearty German fare after a long (or short :) walk.

    Dress Code: Try not to drip on the floor too much when you come in after your walk :)

    Johnny Fox's: The most famous pub in Leinster

    Johnny Fox's, nestled high in the Dublin Hills, is justly famous for its food, entertianment and atmosphere. Its very touristy but that doesn't stop it from being a great Pub :-) Strangely enough for what is the highest pub in Ireland, its speciality is seafood. Thats whimsy for ya ! Am putting it in my Wicklow section cos thats where I think its spiritual home is ;)

    Johnnie Fox’s Pub: Johnnie Fox’s Pub

    OK, officially this famous pub is not part of Co. Wicklow, but of Co. Dublin, but it is closer to the Wicklow border than to Dublin City, so I may be forgiven to include it in this section.

    This is a FUN pub and restaurant with some of the most scrumptious food you’re likely to find in Ireland. Entertainment is seven nights a week, and once inside you really don’t want to leave. It is also a favourite haunt for Dublin’s rich and famous – a helicopter pad is available at the rear – so you may be rubbing shoulders with entertainers and politicians. The one time I was there, Ronnie Drew from the Dubliners was also having a good time. Despite the glitterazzi this place is still very laid back and enjoyable. It is also full of charming old memorabilia: At one time it started out as a folk museum before becoming a public house. You really don’t want to miss it if you’re in the area, trust me.

    The only downside is that it is in the middle of nowhere. The nearest B&B is 6 miles away, so you will need to either arrange a lift by taxi… or nominate a designated driver. (Poor soul!)

    With scenery like this, who needs a throbbing nightlife? :-)) O.K., O.K., in case you do get extremely bored, you can always head down to the nearest local pub. Remember, this is still Ireland - famed for its many pubs at every street corner!
