In the Spring of 2008 Donovan's Irish Pub debuted. Affectionately known as "Tess's place" to the owners family, Donovan's is a place where patrons can relax, share friendships old and new, tell many stories, laugh, eat, and drink the Irish way.
Grandma Tess was the embodiment of an Irish daughter, mother, and grandmother. Family time was extremely important to her. She never found more enjoyment than when she was cooking her homemade Irish dishes for her children and grandchildren (always supplementing the meal with a tasty drink of course). Donovan's always puts family and friends first and embraces life to the fullest. This pub has been created in Tess's memory, so everyone can feel like they are one of Grandma's little ones and be captivated by her "Irish Love."
From appetizers, to "pub grub" to dinner entrées, Donovan's presents great food — most of it with at least a hint of the old country.
Donovan's is located 10 miles north of downtown St. Augustine on U.S. Hwy 1.
