A little History of the Wolf Dog Tavern

It was named the ‘Golden Acres’ up until 2009 when there was a significant fire and it became a tiny one room shebeen – the only room that wasn’t damaged by the fire at the north end of the house.

Now the whole premises has re-opened. Only the name has got older! The Wolf Dog was the name of the ancient Killala tavern when the French army turned up in Killala in 1798. Back then, the Wolf Dog was a great meeting place for the United Irish movement – this is the account by Richard Hayes in his book The Last Invasion of Ireland (first edition 1937).

Today, the world is still being put to rights here, over a few beers – just as it should be!
