The Whiskey Corner
The Punchbowl Bar is home to a well established and ample Whiskey Corner which sits comfortably in its own majestic "corner" of the hotel's signature bar. An impressive elaborate mahogany cabinet with glass mirrors etched with “uisce beata” houses a collection of over 190 of the world’s finest whiskies hailing from Ireland, Scotland, America, Canada, Wales and Japan. You can choose from the extensive menu of whiskies and our bar staff will be only too happy to help you choose the perfect tipple. Our menu features some of the old time favourites and also some very distinguished brands and tastes. We house an extensive collection of Irish Whiskies which was one of the earliest distilled drinks in Europe, emerging from around the 12th century and since the early 1990’s Irish Whiskey has been the fastest growing spirit in the World for over 20 years. If you would like to taste a selection of Irish or Scottish Whiskies why not order a Whiskey Flight?
