Brigid's Well pub opens in former Lowertown church basement
Former parishioner Patrick McDonald opens new pub Wednesday night
If you're looking for a drinking hole that feels like a cave, the new pub in the basement of the former Saint Brigid's church might be your kind of setting.
Brigid's Well has opened in the basement of Saint Brigid's Centre for the Arts, which can be accessed using Cumberland Street just south of St. Patrick Street.
The pub is run by Patrick McDonald, an Irish immigrant who once attended the former church, which was built by Irish immigrants and was deconsecrated in 2007.
