Fullams has a long and rich history. Formally, the property of Rathangans best known Quaker women, Elizabeth Pims. The building itself and its back lands were host to a number of different businesses over the years. There was a Chandlery, a Tanyard and a Bark Mill to the rear and of course most recently a Public House, Newsagency, Grocer and even a Bank in the main premises.
The building has also been a home to four generations of the current owners the Fullam family.
From the front of the building, some of the significant features of the Georgian period can be observed, in particular the fan light over the pub door. The large back yard was also a centre of industry where local auctions and marts took place before a few well-earned beverages were had to close the deal.
Most recently, that same back yard was host to a very successful music festival; Fullam Fest which accommodated over 500 patrons on the night.
