Took in the whiskey experience and was treated to a excellent lesson on Irish whiskey making. Interesting insights and facts that kept the whole group entertained. We followed that with dinner and there were clean plates all round. Something for everyone here. Great staff too.

After a chilly day warmed up with muscles, excellent flavors and portions. I started with a beet and goat cheese salad and a whiskey mule. Charming service and excellent food.

Nice place also for food and they have a great array of artisan gins. If we had known about this place before we arrived we'd have booked a gin tasting session. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Pricey but worth it.

The tastings range between €20 and €50, with a sampling of four different whiskeys during the course of the session. The history of irish whiskey as well as the process is explained through 2 videos as well as our guides.
