The Horse & Hound Bar in Delgany, County Wicklow has been offering people a warm welcome since 1790. It echoes of an older equestrian tradition and although the houndsmen have vanished now into history, the atmosphere of a distinctive local tavern remains here. Whether a regular frequenter or one-time visitor, pints of excellent beer and friendly faces await at the Horse & Hound.
Though refurbished in 2012, the lounge retains all of its original features, including the open fireplace. All major sporting events are shown on HD television screens and rugby is the primary sport in the lounge; all major matches are shown here and take precedence if there’s a clash with soccer, which can be viewed over in the bar. What’s more, for all Irish rugby games the house serves sandwiches at half time. In the bar, there are also regular pool and dart competitions with attractive prizes sponsored by the house.
The Horse & Hound also offers a beautiful function room designed by top interior decorator Karri Rocca. The room hosts regular entertainment and is an excellent choice for special occasions. It includes an electrical grand piano and overlooks the outdoor terrace and seating area.
