Yes the sign is still there and I think the bar is as well but closed up for quite a while.I also knew two of the barmen who worked in it, they did the bar at Maxims Dance in Fountain St, I got in free when I went with them.

I had a couple of drinks in it.

It was owned by a Tommy Hunt,  I had a few drinks there late 60s.  There was a barman named Sean.

His full name was Sean Boyd, McNamee.   I worked in it from '67 til '70. Sean was from Turf Lodge, but he started to put on a Dublin brogue from some reason. There were three bars in one in that building. The Star & Garter on Rosemary St. Upstairs was the Rosemary Room, and at the back of the building was The Red Barn. you could enter it by walking through the public bar, or up the entry in Rosemary St. Sean once entered a cocktail competition and won it with his cocktail, which he called "Rosemantic".  Sean was a ladies man, and like the rest of us, he liked getting his oates.

One of the barmen you're talking about might have been me. I used to work in Maxims  after work for a bit of overtime. It was supposedly run by a bloke called Gallagher, who was connected to Tommy Hunt through marriage, but Hunt was really the main man.

Way back then he was going with a lovely girl called Kathleen.  I have a photograph taken with them at a Dress Dance.
