The Bar

Drinks on the night have been kindly sponsored by Carlow Brewing Company, Teeling Whiskey, and Bailey's. Paddysco staff will be on hand to serve O'Haras Irish Stout, O'Haras Irish Ale, plus a choice of Teeling Whiskey for the evening.


The Bailey's bar will be returning for the third year in a row as well!


Opening Times

As we know sekt may not be the drink of choice for all guests, the bar will be open for a limited time during the reception. If you prefer a Stout or an Ale, you will be able to order from the bar between 7.00pm and 7.30pm.


In order to ensure smooth progression throughout the program, we will be imposing a strict closing time on the bar before the Official Opening. We would like to thank all guests in advance for their co-operation in this matter!


We're looking forward to hosting you all next week at the Intercontinental Hotel! Please share this message with your other guests and encourage them to join the mailing list!
