Pretville

Pretville town set in the 50’s

We took a 45 min ride out to Pretville in Harties. This little town is set in the 1950’s and brings back memories of Grease, James Dean and Marilyn Monroe. There is a gate charge to enter and then you walk down this gravel road to another era… vintage cars and old barber shops.


There are small replica shops that are set out like they were back in the old days, an old hardware store, pharmacy, police station, bakery and restaurant all set at a moment in time, almost frozen in time.

This little town has a real restaurant that you can sit down and enjoy a burger and coke and feel like you are transported back to grease lightning and John Travolta… the black and white floor tiles and red seats are indicative of this era. You just want to break out in dance and do the jive.
