Donegan's Pub

Donegan's - a traditional Irish whiskey pub since 1871. Donegan's of Collon is situated on the main Slane - Derry route, having opened its doors as a resting place for weary travellers back in 1871, with yard and stables for the horses. Donegan's is still looking after both the local community and passers-by, whether you're looking for a seat by the two open fires on a chilly winter's day or sit in the summer sun in our comfortable yard.ย

Collon House

Built in 1740 in the Irish Long House style, Collon House was the home of Anthony Foster, Lord Chief Baron of the Exchequer.

Collon House, steeped in history, is full of character and charm; its gracious rooms are exquisitely furnished with period antiques and paintings, retaining the atmosphere of early Georgian living, making this a rare opportunity to experience less than one hour from Dublin City Centre, and thirty minutes from Dublin Airport.
