Who are you?


The Johnstown Inn is located in, you guessed it, Johnstown. It’s a quaint little village located just off the M7/N7. We’ve got a pretty cool ruined church and graveyard opposite us, we’re pretty sure it’s not haunted. But it is the resting place of Richard Southwell Bourke: 6th Earl of Mayo, Chief Secretary for Ireland and Viceroy of India. Apparently he was shipped home from the subcontinent in a vat of rum. Johnstown village is nestled into the world famous landscape of North East Kildare. As children around the globe are all too aware, Kildare is justly venerated as a fairytale land of lush rolling countryside, spacious business parks and sensibly priced real estate; all juxtaposed against Ireland’s busiest thoroughfare. There are plenty of racehorses knocking about too.

You can enter Johnstown from either junction 8 or 9. If you are arriving from down the country, just look for a stupid looking big ball with traffic markings at the end of the motorway. If you’re coming from the “Big Schmoke” and you see said eyesore, well, you’ve gone too far (we’ll see you when you come back). Our closest neighbours are Naas and Kill, both about 3 clicks away. We’ve got a decent sized car park and plenty of on street parking, but as you will probably want to try one of our delicious craft beers, you should probably get a taxi.

Back in the day, The Johnstown Inn was originally a coach house for the highfalutin lords and ladies travelling south from the Pale. Many an entrant from bygone editions of Who’s Who will have whet their whistles at The Johnstown Inn. These days we cater to a slightly more universal clientele. So, if you happening to be passing by between 09:00 – 22:00 and want a great value meal, then we strongly suggest you drop in. See you soon.
