About Foxhunter

The Foxhunter, Lucan’s much-loved pub, has reopened its doors after 10 years, and we can’t wait to welcome you back! The Lucan institution, which started its life as a roadside tavern in the early 1900s, has had an impressive refurbishment, retaining many of the original features. Conveniently located on the N4, it is the perfect pitstop for travellers to fuel up with a bite to eat before hitting the road west, locals to drop in for a pint and enjoy live music or celebrate an occasion in the impressive Elm Room function space.

Why not try our infamous Foxhunter Carvery! Available every Sunday from 12pm to 7pm.
