Situated in Glencullen in the Dublin mountains, Johnnie Fox's is one of Ireland's oldest and most famous Traditional Irish pubs and the highest pub in the country.
It is located approximately 25-35 minutes drive from Dublin City centre.
There you can breath the authentical local atmosphere.
If you go to Ireland, you can't miss this place!!!
Favorite Dish FRESH WILD MUSSELS
(Speciality of the house and strongly recommended)
Steamed to smile in their shells, in white wine, garlic, onions and parsley.
Its' best to go the the Hoolie night - reservtions are required :)
Great food, good local music, dancers on stage for a Riverdance-esque experience, and fellow diners are fun to watch :)
Though there were other tourists, we were outnumbered by the locals who sang to every pub song the band played, danced between the tables, and just simply had fun.
There are kitchsy things all over - hanging from the rafters, on the porch, there's even the ashes of an American who always wanted to go to JF's in a display.
The locals hang out here, and are friendly - did you know that the Irish love to talk to strangers more than I?
Favorite Dish Get the clams as your apetizer! This is the largest order of clams I've ever seen! I had ordered the whitefish, and was suprised to see whole little fish - heads and all! Okay, I'm spoiled, and needed to exchange this for the seafood chowder ..... that dish was heavenly. The server didn't give me a hard time for being a wuss either :)
There was so darn much food, I couldn't eat it all even though I've got quite an appetite :)
I had salmon, one companion had a wonderful steak, and our third had the lobster ...... mmmmmmm, yummy .....
