Nestling on the canal bank in Leitrim Village at the start of the Shannon Erne waterway, Carthy’s is definitely one of County Leitrim’s best kept secrets. Less than 5 miles from Carrick on Shannon by road, you won’t find a more delightful and entertaining pub! Popular with visitors and locals alike, Carthy’s oozes atmosphere and ambiance! Your genial host is David Carthy, and his mission is to simply offer his customers a memorable ‘pub visit’ experience!
Enjoy a quality pint of Guinness, Craft beer or locally distilled Gunpowder Gin in the marine themed bar itself. Maybe challenge your friends to a game of pool or darts or relax outside in the sun, watching the boats cruise by – the Beer Garden directly overlooks the Canal.
Or you can really let your hair down at the lively regular weekend music sessions. You can even go online with the FREE WIFI facilities!
And there’s no better place to enjoy the atmosphere of that big sporting occasion – Carthy’s offers all the major sports channels on several large flat screen TV’s.
In the summer months, weekend barbeques are a regular feature in the Beer Garden which overlooks the canal itself.
The legendary North Shannon Motor Yacht Club could even be in attendance for one of their regular shindigs – Carthy’s doubles up as their Clubhouse!
Or you could encounter a mini invasion of leather-clad motor cyclists enjoying a rally day out.
Or chew the fat with visitors of all nationalities from the boats holidaying on the River Shannon and Shannon Erne Waterway.
However, what makes Carthy’s really unique, is its down to earth friendliness and a genuine desire to make your visit an enjoyable one.
Twinned with London
A few years ago, Carthy’s Lock17 ‘twinned’ with its namesake Lock17 Pub at Camden Lock on London’s Regent Canal.
The ‘tour party’ included owners David and Carmel Carthy, pictured making the presentation to Lock 17’s Management team. To coincide with the twinning mission, the North Shannon Motor Yacht Club organised a special Tour – a great turnout, 12 members travelled to London to support David!
The Tour also took in the famous Camden Market complex (which includes Lock 17).
