The Grainne Ale Festival

May 4, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 10:00 pm


For an ‘ale of a time, why not join us for the 7th annual Grainne Ale Craft Beer festival taking place in the best beer garden in Ireland. It will all be happening over the Saturday and Sunday of the May Bank Holiday weekend in Gracy’s Pizzeria & Bistro in the farmyard of Westport House.

This year, we welcome back old favourites and our regulars – Mescan, Reel Deel, Longueville House and Black Donkey. And for their first time at the Grainne Ale, we look forward to sampling Lough Gill’s delicious brew and local Loch Measc distillery’s scrummy vodka and gin.

And we will be firing up the wood-fired pizza oven for some mouth-watering bites to accompany the robust and flavoursome selections of beers, cider and spirits on offer. As usual, the team at Gracy’s will be serving a full bar and soft drinks to compliment our crafty brews.

NEW for 2019 **Chats With Our Brewers**
