Boating in the Carrick area! 

After a long day on the river, a warm welcome awaits you at Gene Anderson’s Traditional Thatched Cottage Bar. This lovely old style bar has beautiful old antiques, world class bar service and country charm. A lively music venue offers you a seat amongst the musicians, singers and dancers who perform in a relaxed atmosphere, without noisy amplification or formal stage! There is a house piano and guitar to try out and even a resident dance master for joining in the fun yourself!

Enjoy the banter with the locals, while our attentive and knowledgeable bar staff can tip you off as to the best fishing spots. Drink the finest pint of Guinness you have ever tasted at our world famous bar! The secret of the quality PINT OF GUINNESS is attributed to the temperature obtained naturally under our thatched roof, the short distance between the barrel under the counter to the dispensing tap and the natural spring water used to wash the glasses! The Truth is in the taste!!  

We are EASILY ACCESSIBLE from any of the river ports, North or South of Carrick by taxi or minibus. Open every night from eight until late! This is just THE perfect place to visit far away from the hustle and bustle of city life! 

After you dine on your boat or in any of your favourite good restaurants complete your evening by visiting the Thatch! The house special is IRISH COFFEE for which the pub is Internationally famous. Bring your camera and dancing shoes! Free music venue. The music starts ‘when the cows are milked’! 24 hour taxi / minibus hire – special rates apply to the Thatch and back to your boat again!  Call Michael Glancy Hackney Service [Best Value!] on 086 859 7093 or any taxi service as advertised near your boat moorings.
