The Shebeen Testimonials - The Shebeen


40th Birthday (Connemara Shebeen, USA)

Jason Haglund – Middleboro, Massachusetts

“A few years back my wife Erin said to me, “Did you know that we can rent an authentic Irish Pub?”. So, when planning her 40th birthday, I couldn’t resist. The Shebeen was so much fun! We sat in the comfort of the pub all night while the temperatures outside dropped below freezing. We drank home-brewed ale, sipped whiskey and wine, and had laughter with our friends. It could not have been any better. Thank you John and Chris for an exceptional concept.”

Wedding Reception – Adare

Roisin & Peter Relihan

“I was so excited to have The Shebeen at our wedding as a surprise for my guests. It was excellent everyone loved it! It was a brilliant place for groups of friends to have a sing song and the banter somewhere outside of the marquee. The homeliness and all the little detailed features make it a truly unique experience. The attention to detail is amazing throughout the whole Shebeen. It wasn’t empty day or night, everyone both young and old thoroughly enjoyed it. I would recommend it to anyone.”


50th Birthday Party

Mary O’Connor

“For my special birthday I rented a house with a group of friends in a remote part of the West of Ireland and got The Shebeen delivered to the house. Having our very own pub made us all very giddy and brought the fun out of everyone. My friends loved it. It was the nugget that made a good weekend away BRILLIANT. It really is the “bouncy castle” for adult birthday parties!”

Sonia and the Sharks Team

“Thank you so much for bringing your amazing Shebeen to Kinsale. It really went down a treat as much with the locals as it did with our delegates. The Shebeen played an integral role in making the week such a success and I hope we will be in touch again next year.”

The Irish Times

Gerry Quinn, Features Digital Editor, The Irish Times

“The Irish Times hired the Shebeen for a large-scale client and reader event for Culture Night Dublin, 2015. It was a huge success and a real treat to see hundreds of people be transported to a whole other world once they stepped inside. The good humour and craic that was generated was priceless for the company and we have every plan to be a regular repeat customer. The team are professional and totally reliable. We had three beer taps and coolers set up and ran it without a hitch for the night. If your goal is to make your guests feel relaxed and at home while having a fantastic party, you won’t be disappointed. Expect singing and a very late night. Well worth the cost.”


The National Ploughing Championships

Sinéad – Nolan Tyres, Co. Carlow

“We booked The Shebeen as an added extra to our stand at the Ploughing Championships this year, little did we know if would become the star attraction! From delivery and set-up to Liams presence on site we could not fault a thing. Highly professional & friendly service. We would highly recommend ‘The Shebeen’ to anyone looking to add something special to any event!”


Keith & Fiona’s Wedding

Fiona & Keith Hynes

“We had The Shebeen for our wedding day in May. It was a lovely addition to our day and one of my favourite parts of the day was the time we spent in The Shebeen. Our photographer also got some great photos of us all cosying up by the fire and enjoying a few drinks. Huge thanks to Liam & John. We would definitely recommend The Shebeen for any event.”

50th Birthday Party

Samantha and Andrew Varley

“We hired the Shebeen for my 50th birthday celebrations and it was a great addition to the party. It was a black tie occasion and it is always difficult to create a special atmosphere at a party at home.
Everyone said that they were reminded of their old country local by the presence of the Sheebeen,
and everyone was blown away by the artefacts that decorate it inside. The only problem we had was trying to remove guests from The Shebeen when the party was at an end (5.30am!) I would have no hesitation in recommending the Shebeen to anyone. It was brilliant!”
