The founding of The Hamlet Court Hotel

The O’Neill family arrived in December 1960 into the village of Johnstownbridge by accident.

Our father, Murty who ran a furniture store in Ballina, County Mayo was going to Dublin to buy some new furniture. He came up to stay with his family the night before in Kentstown, County Meath. His mother spotted in the paper a pub for sale in Johnstownbridge and as we say here, the rest is history!

Daddy and his brother Andrew over the years made many alterations and additions to the pub to develop it into a Roadhouse. It has always been a family affair, when we started catering food our head chef was my mothers brother, John Kennedy.

Their foresight, determination, hard work and loyalty of our customers and neighbours has grown our business and helped us develop to what we are today, a family owned and run hotel, home from home with traditional values.
