About Us

The Sligo Pub has been serving customers for over 75 years in Somerville, holding the oldest liquor license in Davis Square. The previous owners immigrated to the US from County Sligo in Ireland, and gave the bar the current name, Sligo Pub. Before them the pub was called Mahoney’s and before that, it was known as Pat Connolley’s.  It has changed ownership over the years but it remains a small family run business. The current owner, Tom Mannion, also came here from Ireland, County Mayo to be exact, and has been running the business since 1989. His two daughters help out behind the scenes as well. There have been some changes over the years but Sligos still strives to keep that laid back local pub atmosphere. One of The Sligo Pub best features is its wonderful mix of patrons. Everyone, from our loyal long time customers to the local college students are welcome at the Sligo Pub.
