The Barge

Picture source: Stephen Harris

The Barge was situated at 271 Victoria Dock Road and was previously known as The Freemason's Tavern and the Kilkenny Castle. It closed in 2002 and currently appears to be a hostel for residents on housing benefit.

This pub was established as the Freemasons Tavern by 1862.  It was a Courage Brewery pub and was renamed the Kilkenny Castle in around 1985, at which time it became a free house.

This pub has now been demolished (see photo of site below).
