Canavans: "Traditional pub" Tuam Nightlife Tip by sourbugger
Tuam Nightlife: 1 reviews and 1 photos
If you want a traditional irish pub that is unspoilt by tourism this is it.
The inside gives reminders of when most Irish pubs also sold everything else you needed. The Guinness is kept well and the age range of people is diverse.
The ceiling apparantly was was last repaired in 1922. The tradesman in question absconded to the USA for some reason and the job has never been completed since.
An Irishman once told me that the word "manyana" (spanish) has an equilvalent word in irish but - "without the sense of urgency".
That sums this place up !
UPDATE : 2007. curses ! the place has had a total re-vamp. Despite that, it still looks pretty much like it did before. The new owners have also dramatically changed the food menu. The wife of the partnership is Slovakian - so the food has a quite East European feel to it. I ate a rather wonderful Hungarian goulash, with lashings of paprika in it.
Dress Code: eh ? it's a pub !
Address: high street
Directions: Go to the centre of town from Glaway and turn left - it's on your right.
