Ask any local the best place for a relaxing and entertaining evening, and the common answer would be: Kavanaghs Pub-Portlaoise. This popular pub opened in 1869 and since then has garnered immense popularity among its patrons beyond Portlaoise. For over 100 years, the traditional pub has managed to keep up with the changing times and serve their guests diligently. Here, guests are welcomed into a typical sports bar-like ambiance where an eclectic crowd can be seen relishing pizzas and cocktails while watching their favorite sports on TV. And that's not where all the actions ends, as Kavanaghs hosts regular concerts, stand-up comedy and DJ nights indoors as well as in their courtyard. These versatile spaces also accommodate birthday parties and private events.
