Paula’s Public House

Paula’s Public House in Poughkeepsie opened in October 2016 on the site of the well-known Mulligan’s Irish House in the Red Oaks Mill section of town.  It’s proprietor, Paula Young, has completely re-imagined the old, dark Irish pub into a bright, homey, comfortable pub and bar with a “food is love”-conceived menu.

Paula’s Public House is also the setting for “Public House”, a series of intimate conversations with people making a difference in the Hudson Valley. This segment was recorded in front of the restaurant’s beautiful stone fireplace. Paula’s guest is Hudson Valley resident Michael Sheehan.
