An Poitín Still Bar & Restaurant
Part of the Fitzgerald Group since 1971, this property has many of the features that were part of the original cottage and surrounds. Distillery barrels line ceiling in the lounge, leading to an authentic whiskey still inlaid above the open fireplace that has many of the working parts intact, including the copper kettle and boiler that is still in use today to help heat the premises. Many of the original beams are used in the support structures and in the front public bar where the counter dates back before the 1970s. There are many unique displays scattered throughout the property, including a letter sent from a passenger on board the Titanic the day of its first and only sailing. There is General Tom Thumb’s Jacket and the football and tickets used in Croke Park on Bloody Sunday in 1928, along with many other items of sporting memorabilia and genuine traditional Irish pieces.
This property is one of Ireland’s most famous eateries. Known all over the land for its ability to cater for all tastes and pockets, it has breakfast, lunch and dinner available all day every day. The large open-plan kitchen adds to the atmosphere and theatre of the property. Catering for large crowds on busy days is part and parcel of what makes The Poitín Still unique. There is something for everyone, from quick lunches in the bar and lounge to full evening meals in the 150-seat restaurant. The Poitín Still is famous for the fact that at any time of the day you can get a hot meal in great surrounds at great value.
Traditional hospitality abounds at An Poitín Stil, with entertainment four nights a week with a large dash of traditional music. Check out the “Session Under the Stairs” on a Wednesday night — local musicians drift in and out while partaking in a music session that echoes of days gone by in an intimate setting where all are welcome.
