About

On display in the pub is a vast collection of antiques and memorabilia which have been amassed since opening the doors in 1797. Everybody is welcome at Mellett's Emporium where you can relax in front of the roaring fire, watch a match on one of the big screens or enjoy a drink 'al fresco' in the large beer garden.

Great spot for a drink and catch up with family and friends. Sometimes there is live music and that's always brilliant. Fabulous pub and friendly staff. Wouldn't go anywhere else.

Historic Cosy Pub Where You Will Feel at Home
Sep 2019
We are Americans who stayed in Swinford for 2 nights in September. Marie Mellett, the publican and first female owner of Mellett's in hundreds of years, is a kind and welcoming person who will make you feel at home. In fact, everyone who worked here made us feel very welcome. It is beautifully decorated, with all sorts of fascinating things on the wall having to do with the history of the pub. This pub has been in the Mellett family for seven generations. If you want a true Irish pub experience, as it's done in Ireland, go here! I can't recommend Mellett's highly enough!

Best in West
Aug 2019 • Friends
This pub does need any more five star reviews because it is simply one of the very best pubs in Ireland. This is a tardis of a bar that streches way way back and is decorated from floor to ceiling with 200 years plus of love and effort, of collected local memorabilia. But is a proper real local pub as well, with great beer and sports, and a great outdoor back bar which the younger crowd make their own in the evening. This is a great friendly town and if you are lucky enough to have a night in Melletts i am sure you will agree with me, that this is a very special bar.
Thanks to the great staff for looking after us so well. Will be back.

Sport on demand
May 2019 • Solo
The only place in Swinford to watch any Sport that you are interested in
The staff are knowledgable and the Pub has a multitude of screens which will be tuned into your requirements
The beer - particularly the GUINNESS is the best in the town.
A must stop place to visit - I recommend.

My favourite Swinford pub!
Apr 2019 • Friends
I have been in Mellet's quite a few times over the last few years. It is a warm, welcoming and well run pub with an excellent pint and friendly staff. The customers are mainly local but it is very popular with visitors too. Mellett's is usually our family's first choice for a night out in Swinford and I would definitely recommend a visit there for anyone staying in the area!

The best pub in Mayo
Jul 2017 • Friends
Drink at a reasonable price served with character and friendliness is the hallmark of this 8th generation Emporium in the capital of East Mayo.
Good pints at a reasonable price coupled with the same for other drinks are de riguer in this gem of a public house in Swinford.

Good guinness
Jun 2017 • Friends
This place is quirky. It has lots of bits and prices hung around which is a little too fussy for my liking. That said the Guinness was very good.

Thank you for your review, it's always great to get feedback and we are delighted that you enjoyed the Guinness. The bits and pieces hanging up are as a result of seven generations of the Mellett family collecting memorabilia over 220 years, but they are not to everyone's taste and that's ok. We hope you enjoyed your time in Swinford and we look forward to welcoming you to the pub again in the future. Marie Mellett Manager
