Leitrim's Oarsman retains listing in Michelin  Guide 2017

Popular Leitrim pub, The Oarsman in Carrick-on-Shannon has retained its listing in the 2017 Michelin ‘Eating Out In Pubs’ Guide just published. The sole standard bearer for Leitrim, the Oarsman is one of twenty-five pubs from the Republic of Ireland and seven from Northern Ireland featured in the publication.

In overall terms, County Down leads the way with six listings followed by Cork with five, Clare with four and Kildare with three. Dublin, Galway and Mayo each received two listings with Antrim, Kerry, Leitrim, Louth, Sligo, Tipperary, Wexford and Wicklow each having one listing.

Produced by leading tyre manufacturer Michelin - this year’s Guide recommends more than 500 pubs spread across England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland of which 38 are new entries and all of which are selected, first and foremost, for the standard of their food.
