The Commercial Hotel in George St Bathurst, NSW, Australia, was purchased in 2008 and in a record 3 weeks, it was renovated and reopened as Jack Duggan’s Irish Pub. It is owned and run by Irish publican and licensee - Glyn Daunt and his wife Helen along with Chef of Irish renown - Shannon Barrett and restaurant manager - Peter Barrett.
The name was chosen because of its strong Irish-Australian connection and rich history. “We wanted to open a real Irish pub that would also be a great Australian local” says licensee Glyn Daunt. “My wife Helen grew up a few miles from Castlemaine - the Irish birthplace of Jack Duggan - who was The Wild Colonial Boy and in the Australian version of the folk song, it says that Jack escaped from Bathurst Gaol!! – we loved the connection of this legendary bushranger with both Ireland and Australia and of course with Bathurst.”
Since it opened, Jacks has been receiving rave reviews. Its famous warm Irish welcome, friendly staff, imported beers and top quality live entertainment have been a huge hit with the locals. And residents from the Blue Mountains, Lithgow and Orange, and even Sydney now regularly make the journey to Bathurst to savour a pint at Jack Duggans bar and a meal from Ma Duggan’s Kitchen.
