Giltraps Pub in Kinnitty, County Offaly is a landmark building in the centre of the picturesque village at the foothills of the Slieve Bloom Mountains. Dating back to the seventeenth century when it was originally a hotel, Giltraps Pub is now a family run operation managed by the Clendennen family.
Giltraps has been awarded a number of accolades including Black & White Scotch Whisky Heritage Pub of the Year, James Joyce Pub of the Year Award and the highest recognition (5 stars) in Pub Spy Review by the Sunday World newspaper.
Whether you’re looking for an open fire after a day’s hiking or walking in the Slieve Bloom Mountains, attending a wedding at Kinnitty Castle Hotel, want to have the ‘craic’ or chat about GAA with the locals or you’re simply looking for the ‘perfect’ pint of Guinness, then Giltraps is one of the best pubs in the area.

There have been many occasions when the bride and groom have joined the wedding party for a quick drink, whilst also taking advantage of our award winning pub for a photo opportunity. With advance notice, we also offer the bride and groom a complimentary bottle of bubbly on arrival whilst rolling out the red carpet.
