ely hall of fame

A perfect start to 2016! 1st and 2nd best wine bars in Ireland again – many thanks to Tomas Clancy and the Sunday Business Post
followed by a glowing review reviewed by the dialectic, idiomatic and idiosyncratic guys and girls that make up the gang at McKennas’ Guides.
We’d like to thank all of our suppliers, many of whom were winners too,
and especially all of our staff for their hard work in retaining these awards year after year!
