Durty Nelly’s was designed and constructed in Ireland by Irish architects, using genuine Irish materials. It was then disassembled transported to Shafto Lane in the heart of Perth Western Australia and reassembled.
Durth Nelly’s is divided into three sections:
- The Brewery Bar: it reflects ancient Brew house traditions and the design was inspired by the original Guinness brewery: St James Gate Dublin.
- The Victorian: ornate and decorative, designed to emulate the nineteenth century Victorian era in which detail and quality craftsmanship went hand in hand with the philosophy that is as vital to please the eye ass the palate.
- The General Merchant: it takes its appearance from a traditional public house, reflecting a time when a pub would double up with all manner of other businesses: grocers, tailors etc.
