Discover Our History
A warm welcome awaits you in The Glen Tavern from Ger Callanan and all his team. The Callanan family can trace their history in the hospitality industry back to the early 1930s from Thurles in Co Tipperary. Three generations of the family, now help to run The Glen Tavern.
The building dates back to 1760s and forms part of Limerick’s Georgian Quarter. Edmund Sexton Pery owned the land on the southern side of the Shannon away from the older medieval part of the city. In 1765 he commissioned the engineer and architect Davis Dukart, to design a town plan for the area, in the new Georgian architectural style. The area will later be known as Newtown Pery, which occupies much of the current city centre.
