Since 1971 An Poitin Stil 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 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 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 Thumbs Jacket, The football & tickets used in Crooke Park on Bloody Sunday in 1928 along with many other sporting memorabilia and genuinely traditional Irish pieces.

Fantastic Had my daughters birthday party here. It was just a small gathering but that didn't matter. We were treated so well and nothing was a problem to ask for. I especially would like to thank Barry for looking after us so well. We had a lovely night. Food was fantastic, music was great and atmosphere was brilliant. All the staff were so helpful and friendly. Thoroughly recommend either having a meal or spending your evening there. You most definitely will not be disappointed.
