It's underground, the fire is lit, and yes, the Guinness is good!


The 1692 Bar

The bar is a crucial part of any celebration, offering guests a chance to unwind, relax and get to know each other.  Our bar is located in the original cellar of the house, complete with vaulted ceiling, original brickwork and slate floor.  We have Guinness, Smithwicks, Heineken, Carlsberg, Bulmers and Coors on Tap and a wide selection of bottled beers, spirits, wines and soft drinks.  We also carry O'Hara's Craft beers and mini bottles of Prosecco for those looking for something a little different.  And for the true traditionalists among you- we also keep a little stockpile of Dairymilks and Taytos for sustenance!

We have a TV with sports channels in one corner of the bar but this is really only used for life or death situations such as GAA finals, Heineken Cup finals and the odd Eurovision song contest- crucial matters!  

Our Garden Room has a full bar carrying the same range of draught and other drinks and we accept Cash, Laser and Credit card payments on all tills.

Day 2

The bar has a great atmosphere and can comfortably host musicians and bands.  We have had great sessions in the bar and list some of the musicians on the Lovely Things page of this site.  With 10 acres under us, the house can also cater for garden parties and Barbeques, check out Dara Munis' photos for a sneak peek of a perfect "day after" party.
