    I'm not a native of Castlebar, so most of my drinking experiences are of when I was a young buck piled in the back of a red cortina flying around the country to The Beaten Path, Midas, Belleek Castle and generally whereever there was flashing lights and it was dark !! ... Am I showing my age yet !! (34).

    Anyways, I spent a weekend in Castlebar lately had a gang of golfing buddies down from Dublin, played Carne and Westport, but drank like a fish in McHales pub accross from The Welcome Inn ..... t'was great !!

    Craic was good as was the beer, what more can you ask ... little totter accross the road to bed in The Welcome Inn (which was only middling).

    As a native of and resident in Castlebar, for all the pubs in the town there are very few that I'm comfortable in. McGoldricks would be my local but I'd also be a regular in Mick Byrnes and The Castle Inn. I'm not a huge fan of Rockys (unless it's early evening and there's room to breathe) or Bosh (same reason). I can't go to Cox's yet cos I'm not a married man over 50 or a single girl under 25 :D . Not many more that even merit a mention imho apart from Johnny McHales as was mentioned by Culchie where the Guinness is as good as I've ever tasted. Oh, I forgot to mention Ray Prendergasts - another good spot.
