The pub was opened by Alan Field and Eddie Bohan in 1996. The premises had been a paint store called Beck & Koller which had traded at this location for 120 years. They relocated across the road where they are open today. Converting the premises to a pub from a paint store took nearly a year and a lot of effort. The contents of a pub from Churchtown Co Cork was acquired and shipped to Vienna where together with local and Irish workers a great pub was created. Eddie left the company later concentrating on his property business in Ireland.

In 2003 the pub was voted Best Irish Pub in Europe by expedia.co.uk the only year they held this competition. The pub over the years has served many pints to its local Viennese and International customers and became very much part of the city.

The Bangers with mash were good, the onion gravey was very good. And the best of all, it's an english speaking service. So you get the full Pub experience.

I was looking for some fish 🐟 and chips and I know for a fact that British, or Irish or Scottish have the best ones.So I found this place. I was also excited about my favorite beer ..Ale...Fish and chips was very tasty. Cod fish is my wife's favorite. And all the Ales were simply refreshing. Memories from my trip to Oban(in scottland) came back.There is so more to try. We will keep coming back for sure.Thank you team Flanagan

This is an Irish Pub that was serving a HOARD of drunk English football fans during the Euros - Frankly, they in fact deserve 10 stars for that alone.

The Churchtown, Co Cork Connection

We wanted to build Flanagans with authentic materials and approached Billy O’Sullivan to source salvage of original pub fittings for us. As it happened Flannerys of Churchtown had closed and Billy O’Sullivan quickly acquired much of its contents in particular the back of the bar shelves or dresser. This was initially transported to Waterford where Billy and his team assembled it and literally built the bar in their warehouse before being loaded onto trucks and moved to Vienna in 1996.

In an inspiring twist, Gerry Murphy who was from the town but living in Dublin read about this in the newspaper and decided that something had to be done to save his village from further decline. This inspired him to leave his job with a bank in Dublin and reopen the pub in 1999 calling it Boss Murphys. This started the Churchtown Renewal project which saw the building of new houses and businesses to bring life back into the village. Recently Jerry Murphy wrote about this in his book the “Accidental Entrepreneur” which saw his project inspired from the pub closure grow to become a €100 million business in three years.
