Matt Molloy’s

Family, International, Ireland

From Turlough to Ballycurrin near Headford, our next overnight stop could have been a less than one hour drive but we chose to take the great circle drive along the N59 through glorious countryside. Of course that meant a stop in Westport. First was a visit to a pharmacy to replace eyedrops left behind at The Granary and then a need for refreshment. We chose Matt Molloy’s and used our quiet time at the bar to write postcards. That led to a conversation with an Aussie couple here for a family wedding and the tidbit that Matt Molloy, the pub owner was the famed flautist of The Chieftains!
