Proprietor Margaret O'Brien and her late husband Bernard took over the management of the pub in 1981, but now O’Brien is retiring and the pub must close.
“It’s a sad time,” she told RTÉ.
Local Helen Morrissey said the pub was “the focal point in the Glen.”
A number of locals gathered in the pub for the last time and raised a pint together to say goodbye to the institution.
