Three Generations of Dargan’s

Dargan’s in Santa Barbara was Established in October 1997 , but the name Dargan’s has been associated with public houses in Ireland since the beginning of the 20th century.

In 1927, Lawrence Dargan built a Pub and grocery to serve the small population of Cookstown, a market town in the north of Ireland. He and his family ran a successful business, well known locally as a center of Irish traditional music and craic (Gaelic for good times).

When Lawrence retired his son Benny (pictured above) took over the business.

The tradition has spanned three generations, with Paul Dargan, who moved from Ireland when he was 21, now the proud owner of Dargan’s in Santa Barbara.
