Jordan’s Bar is one of the best known bars in south Galway since the original Patrick Jordan opened the pub in 1885. Since then it has traded as a bar and grocery initially, and just as a pub since 1968. Patrick Jordan died in 1915 and the pub was then run by his wife and son Patrick. Patrick ran the pub until his death in 1961. It was then run by his wife, and later by her son, the present owner Pat Jordan. As you browse through the photos in the bar you can see the great history attached to this bar — there is even a visit from Pub Spy hanging on the wall with a rating of four out of five (“Moulding on the ceiling is something to behold” – quote from Pub Spy ).
The present owner Pat Jordan is retiring from the business.
