Three friends that said 'feck it' and moved into the famous Pint Baby pub... legendary. 

Being a homeowner is one thing, being a pub owner quite another... but what if you combined the two and made the pub your home? Brings a whole new meaning to the 'sure he lives in the pub' phrase, doesn't it?

Deciding to pool their money together and just go for it, one Irish trio have been making people all across Ireland very jealous with the news that they are now the proud owners of the iconic Daly's Bar in Co Clare.

Making the move from Dublin to Ennistymon, the three friends have been documenting the whole thing on social media and I, for one, am now fully invested in the story.

All working remotely, it's the perfect place to see out lockdown with just about everything they could possibly need right at their fingertips - including a fully functioning bar, a TV to watch the rugby and the sea to help dust the cobwebs off after a heavy night.

And yes, that is the famous 'Pint Baby' pub you see before you.

Previously owned by Willie Daly - the legendary Lisdoonvarna matchmaker - the new owners have big plans for the gaff with the idea being to convert it into a creative space to share with other creatives when it is safe to do so.

Living. The. Dream.
