Description: Distillery barrels line ceiling in the lounge leading to an authentic whisky stil inlaid above the open fire place that has many of the working parts intact including the copper kettle & 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 1970's. 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, The football & tickets used in Croke Park on Bloody Sunday in 1928 along with many other sporting memorabilia and genuinely traditional Irish pieces. This property is one of Irelands most famous eateries known all over the land for its ability to cater for all tastes and pockets it has Breakfast, Lunch & 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 Poitin unique. There is something for everyone from quick lunches in the Bar & Lounge to full evening meals in the 150 seat restaurant The Poitin Stil 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 Poitin Stil with entertainment 4 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 an intimate setting where all are welcome.

Pleasant and efficient staff. We were a table of five, all had steak for main course. It was fine, good but not great and expensive for what it was

Great pub with amazing food! every time I've been here it's been packed. Lovely building with a great atmosphere and lots of little nooks.
There's a buffet as well as al-acarte... both are lovely and very good prices... it's like home-made food!

I was dining in the restaurant on a Friday afternoon and as I was having a relaxing lunch, I heard a waitress yell and curse at some teenagers that were having their lunch. I was extremely distraught and I could not believe that a grown woman would speak to children this way. This was absolutely unacceptable and I will not be returning to the poitin stil.
