Welcome to Póg Mahone's

Póg Mahone's opened in its lakefront location in the heart of Queenstown in 1998 and quickly became a Queenstown icon. The Kiwi and Irish owners wanted to create an authentic Irish atmosphere and so designed and built the pub in Ireland itself then shipped it lock, stock and barrel to New Zealand. At Pógs you can enjoy a lively mix of modern and Celtic music (including regular trad sessions), friendly service and be warmed by open fires in both bars. On the inside it's guaranteed Irish but don't forget to try the sunny lakeside beer garden and balcony from which you can soak up some of New Zealand’s most stunning alpine scenery!

If you're looking for some great Craic*, friendly service and fantastic Irish hospitality then pop into Póg Mahone's or look us up on Facebook.

It’s one thing to talk about how good the service I received was - and I must say, it was outstanding - but to sit back and see every other person that walked into Pog Mahones receive brilliant, welcoming hospitality was the emphatic exclamation point on how great this place is.

They keep you pint and belly full with maximum comfort and complete satisfaction at a reasonable cost. In short, a visit to this bar is like a big warm hug.
