Louis Fitzgerald welcomes back customers


Louis Fitzgerald and the team welcome you back to An Poitin Stil. Our traditional carvery prepared by our chefs with fresh Irish ingredients is now Grab & Go. We offer homemade starters, mains, desserts, salads, soups, and tea & coffee in eco-friendly packaging to bring home. Our off-licence wines, beers & spirits are also now available to go. Try our freshly made strawberry daiquiris.


With a lot of hard work, we have made the premise safe for our staff and customers in these trying times. Louis takes you on a short tour to show you what we have been up to.



We have so much to mention now we are open again. In addition to our traditional carvery, we now also offer rotisserie chicken in An Poitin Stil. Want to treat your family? We offer a weekly Sunday family dinner for 4 – details can be found on An Poitin Stil social media.

A Flashback in Time

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.

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 & 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.
