Fitzpatrick’s Voted Best Pub in the Country
“Country Pub voted Fitz among equals” was a quote from one of the newspapers reporting on Fitzpatrick’s Bar & Restaurant being the first pub in county Louth to win the All Ireland title in the Black & White Whisky Pub of the Year Arward.
They are no strangers to success in this particular competition as they won the Louth title in 1996, 1998, 2000, 2001, & 2002, the Leinster title in 2001& 2002 and the All Ireland title in 2001.
The award was presented based on Fitzpatrick’s standards of hygiene, staff efficiency and friendliness, inviting appearance and the well-served range of drinks; vital criteria to any award- winning establishment.
Following the award, celebrations at the pub went on into the early hours as customers thronged the premises to congratulate the award winning couple.
