With the lifting of restrictions on bars and restaurants beginning 4/8 there will be some changes occurring at Limerick Junction.

  • We will be restoring all of our furniture and return to full seating.

  • Masks will no longer be required by patrons but will be strongly encouraged. Staff will continue to be masked and will continue with our COVID protocols including but not limited to our table cleaning procedure and continuous hand washing and/or sanitizing.

  • We will be restarting our weekly Comedy Night on Tuesdays. The show will be from 9 until 10:30 without cover charge.  For now, the show will consist of booked comics only; the Lightning Round will not be returning immediately (however it will be back in the future.)

  • We are still exploring our options for returning Live Music to Limerick on the weekends. We have no start date planned yet. We are waiting to see an increase in weekend business that would facilitate the expense of a no cover show.

Please check back in periodically for future updates, and please come by the pub for a pint or cocktail.

Our Story

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.
