The Carrick Inn

The first land grant in Carrick was in 1818 and the Liffy River runs past Carrick. The village has a very small population.  Recently we went to the Carrick Inn (Pub) for dinner. The pub was first licensed in 1883 and not a great deal has changed however, a new bar plus an eight ball room have been added in recent times. 
The meals are good being cooked by an Italian Chef and the current licensee is Irish.


 Photo was taken in the dark, I should have taken it when we first arrived.


Very casual dress, and I was amazed to find this Singer sewing machine bottom part of our table, there were several of these.  Can't say I care for the dust :)

    1. Price was normal for a meal. Well the legs are certainly different to have in a restaurant.
