5 Sisters Vodka

Our Story

Culhane's Irish Pub & Restaurant is a modern sports pub that specializes in "Comfort Food with an Attitude". Their savory and authentic Irish specialties plus excellent service brought them the honor of 'The Top 10% Worldwide Restaurants by TravelersChoice 2020'!

Owned by four dynamic 'sassy' sisters from Limerick, Ireland ~ Lynda, Michelle, Mary Jane, and Áine ~ they spent their childhood in Ireland working alongside their parents on the family farm where they developed a genuine love for the land, organic quality food, and hard work. The first restaurant in the Jacksonville Beaches area off of Atlantic Boulevard opened in 2005 and Southside location in 2018. They have been honored to win awards for BEST Fish 'N Chips and BEST Sports Bar in various media competitions. Today there is added excitement surrounding their newly introduced "5 Sisters Spirit Vodka" ~ another opportunity to achieve their American dream.

In 2010, when the economy was plummeting and businesses across America were being forced to close their doors, the sisters received a phone call that changed the fate of their original first location in Atlantic Beach. Restaurant talk about Culhane's Irish Pub had reached producers of the program "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives". Producers loved the restaurant's website, menu, and story, prompting them to contact Michelle about the possibility of being featured on the popular show hosted by Guy Fieri.

"Before a spot on the show could be secured, production teams were sent to check out the pub in person. They wanted to make sure everything was made from scratch and to guarantee that it was a legitimate, authentic place," Mary Jane stated. "A lot of Irish pubs are all about the bar, but we've always focused on our chefs and delicious food; many of our recipes come straight from our mother Kitty's kitchen. That's what sets Culhane's apart.

The creators of "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" agreed. A week after learning we had landed a highly-coveted spot on the show, Fieri was in our kitchen. The show highlighted popular Irish comfort foods, like the Guinness Beef Stew, Dingle Fish Pie, and Blarney Lamb Sliders. The unique ambiance and close-knit community, too, were emphasized — a true Irish pub atmosphere."

Today the Culhane's restaurant vibe hasn't changed; the sisters successfully opened a second and larger Southside restaurant in the epicenter of Jacksonville's Tinseltown neighborhood. With a bustling, open main dining room featuring a raised stage for entertainment, as well as numerous TVs in the bar and dining areas for sports fans, one might enjoy Irish dancers charming their way into your hearts ~ and occasionally the familiar sounds of bagpiper accompaniment. Each night there is something fun happening ~ from trivia and bingo to fundraising events ~ always enjoyable in the restaurant, at the bars, or in their private party dining room.
