The Spirit Store has the full support of the Tourist Board and Arts Office. When purchased in 1999 the Spirit Store was in total disarray. The renovation of the pub was to be an enormous undertaking. The premises dates from the last century and is a beautiful old stone building. This was originally the port merchant’s house. The building, which had fallen into considerable disrepair, was restored using original materials including, limestone render, salvaged old wooden flooring, organic paints etc. The Spirit Store, currently owned by the two Marks (Dearey and Mulholland), was reopened in its present format in October 1999 following extensive renovation.
The Spirit Store strives to be a haven for relaxation, conversation, great beer and quality live entertainment. The permanent live venue on the first floor promotes a wide range of events including drama, poetry readings, comedy nights, functions and gigs with some of the best talent in Ireland and further afield performing. There are traditional sessions in the bar every Sunday night.
The bar stacks a broad range of drinks including a selection of some of the best specially imported beers from around the world, quality draught beers and a wide selection of spirits.
