Hi there, we are Ray and Mary Meehan. We recently took over The White House Bar and Restaurant, in the centre of Baldoyle Village. It has since undergone an amazing transformation. We put together an fantastic bunch of people who make The White House the wonderful bar and restaurant it is today. But you don’t have to take our word for it. We’d like to welcome you to our establishment and hope you enjoy the Great Food we have on offer.
Even though we’re new – we have history:
Baldoyle is known to have had an Inn or Public House since the early part of the 17th Century. This is evidenced by the existence in the British Museum of an old hunting song. It tells of Michael St. Lawerence of Howth Castle and a group of friends going to the Tavern at Baldoyle after a days hunt:
“the drink was good and so was the bread,
They took to their liquor till they were all red,
And when they had done, they sang the hare’s knell,
And if I had more, faith the more I would tell.”
