The "John R. O'Flaherty"

France
By Dmitry Petrounin Dmitry Petrounin Section editor Profile

Discover The "John R. O'Flaherty"

This is the real Irish Pub where the first ?intakes' are that of joy and warmth, followed, of course, by beer. You will find a host of Breton beers, the famous Coreff, Lancelot, Tri Martolod or, in the summer, ?Blanche de Janzé' and the Irish beers of Guiness, of course, and Kilkenny. Do not hesitate to ask advice from Jean-René, the owner of the place and a beer expert. Even if it is just to see it, ask to be shown their stunning collection of old whiskies. Every Friday the pub opens its doors to different artists (musicians, painters, cartoonists) and offers music and traditional songs. 22, rue Hoche 56000 Vannes Tel: +33 (0)2-97-42-40-11.
