Blarney stone - Gilhooleys Irish Pub

Blarney Stone - Gilhooleys Irish PubThe punchline of much humour, the Irish are famed for their cheeky, happy-go-lucky personalities and their seemingly infinite ability to smile at even the weakest Irish joke.

Steeped in Irish personality and style, the Gilhooleys Irish Pub on the corner of Cavill Avenue in Surfers Paradise, Queensland, offers an easygoing night out.

Mindful of patron expectations, the pub interior has been fully refurbished using a combination of dark and bright feature walls. Resene Zylone Sheen low sheen acrylic tinted to Resene Calico (warm beige) and Resene Twine (orange beige) on most walls and Resene Super Gloss high gloss enamel tinted to Resene Spanish White (off-white) on trim and joinery provide the foundation for creative lighting, furnishing and splashes of Resene metallics and brights.

With a fresh interior welcoming interior and still the best selection of Irish beverages in town, Irish eyes are bound to be smiling.
