Prior’s is the oldest established pub in Ballinamore, founded in 1922 by Peter Hoey, the grandfather of Gay Prior, the present owner.

Prior’s values its reputation as the best pub in town based on its genuine warmth and hospitality, the superb condition of its drinks, and the quality of its fine locally-produced food and the attentiveness and care of its pleasant and unobtrusive staff.

Prior’s is the town’s Sports Bar where old and young congregate to re-live old sporting glories and find their photographs in the extensive Hallway of Fame. Prior’s is a family pub, where families are welcome whether to sample our tantalising menus, a refreshing mineral drink, a relaxing cup of fresh-brewed Illy coffee, an exotic cocktail or the best pint in Ceannabo. Priors is an ideal location for a variety of functions /parties. The back bar can be closed off for private parties from family birthdays to committee meetings. They have facilitated many large functions like fundraising nights for charity or local clubs with quiz nights and race nights. 

Prior’s was short listed by Licensing World, the leading trade magazine, as one of the three Best Sports Bar in Ireland in 2006 and the Best Local Bar in 2007.

The menu is innovative and varied. The specials menu which changes every week is always in great demand and responds to demand. The impact on local taste and palate has been extraordinary.  Who would ever have expected that Serbian Bean Soup or Ricotta & Spinach Tortellini in Pesto would become favourites in a remote corner of Ireland? The reputation and quality of the food is due in no small measure to the ability, imagination and attention to detail of the cooks, Christine Hehle and Lisa Bradberry.
