Dowdie's isn't the Slieve Mish, that's further up the street. Dowdies used to be the Whitehouse bar.


Thanks for clarifying! Never heard of Dowdies, then again was never in the Whitehouse bar either. Sounds like a nice place to have a few pints by OP's recommendation - must check it out.

Great review by OP though!

I would say it's been a while since you were last in the museum kn, that train broke down years ago and was not fixed [quite like another nearby tourist attraction]

Sorry, probably not very clear on that one - the pub a few doors up from the Blasket wasn't nearer Dowdie's, it was the other side - it was unnamed pub, then a few doors and The Blasket, then a few mins walk and it was Dowdie's.

If it's any use to you, Ongarboy, Himself drinks Guinness and is fairly particular about it. It's always better on the west coast, apparently, and Dowdie's had the best of all.

Thanks everyone - I will be sure to check it out again. I'll see if I can post up one of the photos I took later on, as a reminder
