Fáilte go dtí John’s Bar & Haberdashery

Enter through the modern facade on Thomas St and step back in time. John’s Bar is a mish mash of salvaged seating, cosy nooks, crannies, snugs, and a long central bar counter filled to the brim with beverages, old school sweets, and haberdashery bits and bobs.



Thomas Street has a history of distilling, a history of tailoring and a history of being the original home of a pint of plain. At John’s Bar & Haberdashery, we’ve combined both in this cosy pub with a history that dates back to the 16th Century. John’s Bar & Haberdashery opens daily from 12pm serving up booze and burgers from our very own WOWBURGER.

Named after John Creeth, a haberdasher who ran his shop under lease at 61 Thomas St in the 1850s, the pub aims to preserve the history of the Liberties, and celebrate one of its oldest trades. Every crevice in the space is filled with haberdashery essentials, from needles and threads to thimbles and wool, all available for sale.

Every Thursday to Saturday we have live music from trad to soft rock, we have something for everyone.
