The Nook (Treacy's Bar)

The Nook  (Treacy's Bar)

This Youghal pub has been in the same family since 1901, when it was bought by Michael Treacy, a local farmer. The pub is in the oldest part of Youghal, with Walter Raleigh’s house,  to the rear of it.

When it was bought in 1901, it was a one-roomed bar-cum-grocery, but the Treacy’s extended it by buying four adjoining cottages and converting the former homes into drinking quarters. As the business expanded, the farm was sold. Joe and his wife Maureen continued with the grocery and expanded the bar to include a singing lounge and dance floor. The singing and dancing continues today. The grocery is gone, and is now an off-licence with an eclectic range of beers and spirits and wines. It also has its own deli counter supplying homemade food to go, or to eat in the bar.

Joe’s son Michael Treacy is the current licensee and he is extremely proud of the pub and the central role it plays in the social life of Youghal. 

"If you only ever visit one pub in Youghal, it must be The Nook. It can be quiet and relaxing, or hopping with live music and crowds - but you'll always be welcome. It doesn't matter what time it is, how bright outside, the Nook is always dark, like you have entered another realm ... and maybe you have. " - Martin
