The Shebeen (a Mobile Irish Pub) to Come to Boston

A new Irish pub is on its way to Boston, and this one will certainly be the first of its kind in the region, if not the entire country.

Boston Magazine is reporting that a tiny mobile pub called The Shebeen is expected to debut somewhere in the city in July, with a couple of unnamed local restaurateurs getting the trailer from cabinetmaker John Walsh of Galway, whose original Shebeen pub is used for events, parties, and promotions in Ireland. The article says that the pub, which will be 17 feet long and seating for 10, will have a thatch roof, fake brick walls, a wooden floor, Irish memorabilia, and two draft lines at the bar.

Walsh and his team will be building more mobile pubs to ship to Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia, according to Boston Magazine.
