‘Obama Pub’ Raises the Bar
Ollie Hayes Pub is leading the way for quality and standards as it became one the first premises to be assessed, and approved, under ‘Raising the Bar’,  Fáilte Ireland’s new national standards scheme for pubs.

Famously visited by President of the United States, Barack Obama, Ollie Hayes Pub proudly boasts a certificate of recognition which was presented to them by Fáilte Ireland before the visit after proving it delivers the customer journey.

The scheme, Raising the Bar, which was developed by Fáilte Ireland in association with the Vintners Federation of Ireland, is an approval system based on pubs meeting a set of national minimum requirements.

The Irish pub has long been recognised as one of the most popular tourist attractions and it is the vision of Fáilte Ireland to meet and exceed the expectations of consumers through the introduction of the Pub Accreditation scheme.(Andrew O’ Gorman).
