    How about: “teach tábhairne na hÉireann“ which is “that Irish Pub in Gaelic or “torthaí ar an oileán”: fruit of the island or” torthaí an chalafoirt”- fruit of the Port.

    Personally, after reading about Seamus’s appearance, manner and personality, I kind of think that “The Leprechaun’s Lair” would suit.

    I love the suggestions everyone has made! They’re wonderful! I might name the bar a more sinister name. Banshees Wail; Witches Brew; Merrow’s Cap….

    I was going to suggest Black and Tan, but did some research and found out that it is very offensive.

    Wild Geese Landing or Wild Goose landing
    Disenfranchised Irish fled the indentured slavery and political persecution to become pirates. About 15% of Caribbean pirates were Irish. They were known as “Wild Geese”, and we all know that Seamus is an old pirate 8}

    I think “Seamus’s Ireland” would be a fitting name for the bar.

    20. Foxy John’s, Dingle
    Ireland’s most famous pub-that-is-also-a-hardware-store. You can get drunk AND get your bike fixed. Only don’t cycle home after, because Dingle is on the sea and the consequences of a wrong turn would be very damp.

    (Just thought that was some great Irish humor there!)

    How about The Dubliner (or whatever Seamus’ hometown is, like The Limerick, The Corker, The Derryer…).

    Bunratty’s (after a famous castle).

    These are Irish slang: The Craic, or The Curk (both generally mean “a good time/fun”. Craic is pronounced like “crack”), On The Lash (“go out drinking”), Jammers (“packed full”)

    I think the bar should be called The Shamrock. My great grandmother was Irish, shame I never knew her.

    Jig’s Up
    This is in honor of the famous Irish jig. I learned this dance at a very young age from the nuns who taught school. They were all from Ireland and would speak Gaelic to one another.

    (Crimson can also refer to a person’s flush face, which would work if they are drinking and Clover is self explanatory)

    I’m not that good with trying to come up with a Cool name that someone would pick, but I thought I would try & see what happens. These were a few I thought of:
    The Drunken Ginger
    Ginger’s or Ginger’s Pub
    Pineapple Hill
    Pineapple Cork
    Seamus’s Vicar Pub
    Seamus’s Saloon
    The Distiller Tavern
    The Hairy Pineapple
    Seamus’s Irish Pub
    That’s what I came up with & I can’t seem to think of anymore nanes.
    Good Luck Everyone
    Thank you for this Phenomenal Opportunity.
