The Snug‘s owner Margaret Lyons has announced plans to close her bar. Her post on instagram reads,
In the fall of 2006, I built The Snug from the keg room up. Opening the bar has been the absolute best decision I’ve ever made…until now. It’s been succeeded by my decision to close.
In Ireland, my family may tell you I’m someone with notions. If you don’t know the Irish definition of the word, let’s just say, it’s not exactly a compliment 😉. However, a few years ago I began having [American] notions about retiring from the bar business.
Serendipitously, I crossed the path of three lovely people with notions of their own. They have a new vision, but I have the utmost faith that you’ll love what they get up to!
I don’t think a day will go by without an old Snug memory putting a smile on my face. I bet the same is true for many reading this post. Thank you for all the photographs and still frames in my mind. For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, I absolutely did have the time of my life.
The Snug’s last night will be soon. I’m not going to tell you exactly when, because I hate goodbyes. Let’s just leave it at slán.
Stay tuned for details on what the “three lovely people” have planned.
