French’s of Gorey Pub
French’s, Main Street, Gorey corporation lands, Gorey, County Wexford, Ireland
FRENCH’S is one of the most beloved pubs in Gorey, Co. Wexford — a proper Irish pub that has stood in the town since around 1775.
Despite renovations over the years, it has managed to retain its old-school charm. The result? One of the most charming pubs in the south-east. Like all the best drinking holes, they serve up a mean Guinness.
French’s has to be one of the oldest pubs in Wexford. A pub with a farm supply business!! Right in the centre of Main Street in Gorey. French’s has been in the same family for four generations. It is a real gathering centre.
Traditional Music session from 9.30 on Thursdays.
French’s opened its doors in 1890 by current owner Jim’s great-grandparents, Andrew and Julia French.
The only significant difference to the bar in since has been the addition of indoor plumbing, electricity and a brightly painted smoking area out the back of the pub. The Guinness is as good as it has always been!
So squeeze yourself into the snug, find an old wooden stool and settle in for the evening, Roger Moore and Tom Hanks have been previous visitors to Wexford’s oldest pub, so keep an eye out, you mightn’t know who you would bump into!
