The Guinness Book of World Records says the Guinness World Records will award the title of biggest gay pub in the world in March.
A bar in Cork’s trendy west Cork suburb of Tully has been named in the Guinness book of world records for the biggest bar in the United Kingdom, with its bar area measuring over 5,000 square feet.
The Guinness Book Of World Records said the Tully pub was one of three that the Guinness Book would award in March for the largest bar.
The other two were the Black Cat and the Red Lion in London, and the Irish Pub in Glasgow.
The Tully bar has over 100,000sqft of floor space.
The title is likely to bring a boost to Tully, which is not far from the Irish Sea, and also the Guinness Hotel, which has a huge gay scene.
The bar’s owner, Stephen Molloy, said it was a “great honour” to be awarded the Guinness title.
It’s been a great life, a great journey, but now we have something to put in the record books,” he said.”
We’ve got a bar area over 5k sqft.
A Guinness spokesman said: “The Guinness World Record was established in 1987 to recognize the achievement of individuals and organizations that have achieved outstanding achievement, and has been widely recognised for its integrity and accuracy.”
“The Guinness book is a global resource for all those who want to learn more about the achievements of people who have made a difference to the world.”
