The Shire….. In The Lord Of The Rings, The Shire is the homeland of the Hobbits and is located in the Northwest of Middle Earth in the region of Eriador and within the Kingdom of Arnor.
But in the town of Killarney in the Kingdom of Kerry, “The Shire” is located in Michael Collins Place… where Ollie Favier is “Head of the Hobbits”.
With Traditional Irish Music sessions every Wednesday 9pm till late and Live Music every Sunday from 7-9pm there is something for everyone to enjoy here at The Shire.
Once entering The Shire Pub in Killarney, through the Hobbit Hole you will be met at The Inn of “The Prancing Pony”.
You will be guided through our low archway leading into Mordor..”One does not simply walk into Mordor”.
We promise you there is no presence of Orcs here, only our friendly Hobbit-themed staff to wait on your every need.
This is where our 3 Shire Beers are available; Frodo’s Lager, Bilbo’s Beer and Gandalf’s Ale. We also serve a local Killarney brewed Blonde Ale. Our in-house Cocktail “Hobbit Juice” (whose ingredients will remain anonymous), is always a good crowd pleaser and we have recently added some new cocktails to our menu; Middle Earth Mojito, Ginli, Mordorita and Smeagol On The Beach are now available to try. For more information check out here.
We also have Dressed Gin & Tonics (Hendricks, Tanqueray, Gordons, Dingle and Bombay Gins available). For more information check out here.
As you follow further down through our arched Hobbit Hole, you will enter our highly acclaimed Party area called “Middle Earth”.
Feel free to give us a buzz and reserve this area.
