Giltraps Pub | Kinnitty, Birr, Co. Offaly
Giltraps Pub in Kinnitty, County Offaly, Ireland, is a landmark building in the centre of the picturesque village at the foothills of the Slieve Bloom mountains in the Irish midlands. Dating back to the seventeenth century when it was originally a hotel, Giltraps Pub is now a family run operation managed by the Clendennen family.
