Atlanta's Oldest Irish Pub
Founded in 1988, Limerick Junction Pub has proudly served Atlanta and the heart of the Virginia-Highland neighborhood since.
Opened originally as a partnership between uncle Joe (of Moe's and Joe's fame) with his nephews Hal & Rick Adams and Irish antique dealers Sean Nally & John Sadlier, Limerick Junction brought a slice of Ireland into Atlanta. Sean and John brought authentic pieces from Ireland into the pub: the school benches in the windows are turn of the century while the bar itself is an old wardrobe, the doors of which are the mirrors on our wall. The first general manager, Tracy Crowley, turned his experience at LJP into a career in the service industry that includes owning some of the most well known and beloved iconic bars, taverns, and pubs around Atlanta. All six of these men can be found painted in our "picture" hanging to the left of the main entrance. Come and find them on your next visit.
Current Publican Gordon Kerr has been involved since the first year of operation, moving from manager to partner to sole owner in 2010. That same year, Managing Partner Joshua Jacob joined the family as a cook and bar back. He joined Kerr in partnership in 2016.
Our name comes from Atlanta's history as a railroad terminal: the town of Limerick Junction was born out of a rail stop just east of Limerick, Ireland, much like the Va-Hi neighborhood is part of East Midtown. A railroad theme is prevalent throughout the pub, from our antique signal lights to luggage above the windows.
