JJ Bowles is widely regarded as the oldest pub in Limerick. Records date the pub to at least 1794 with the building dating to the late 1600s. 

There is always a warm welcome at JJ Bowles - whether enjoying a whiskey by the open fire or enjoying a cool pint whilst taking in the stunning views of King John's Castle from our unique riverside beer garden.

Be sure to sample our wide selection of draught beers - renowned for the quality of our pints, we have recently been voted the best pint of Guinness of all the Pubs in Limerick - source Limerick Leader.

Sports fans are always welcome to JJ Bowles: The bar is within shouting distance of Thomond Park and is an essential stop for Rugby fans, both Munster supporters and visitors alike. For GAA fans (Hurling and Football) JJ Bowles is ideally located between the city and the Gaelic Grounds.

At JJ Bowles we cater for birthdays, stags, hens, engagements and after wedding parties. We can also host your corporate event or table quiz.
