This attractive terraced house and pub has served the village of Collon since the 1880s as a public house, hardware and grocery shop, once owned by the Gargan family. The fine late nineteenth century shopfront remains intact with its skillfully carved console brackets and panelled pilasters. The house has a pleasing asymmetry with its central shopfront balanced by the carriage arch and tripartite windows. Donegan's is a good example of the tradition of combined dwelling and shop and contributes to the streetscape and architectural heritage of the area.
