What is your favourite Dublin pub?
Before being an owner of pub I loved Keohe’s on South Anne Street. Once I was in the snug, I wasn’t moving. Now though, I love christmas drinks down the road in Lemon&Duke. The energy around that time of the year is electric. I want to do a shift on Christmas eve too in there to get caught up in the spirit of Christmas.
What is your tipple of choice?
I’m a whiskey man. If it’s Irish, currently I’m loving what the Teelings brothers are doing. Midleton and Yellow Spot are my other go to drinks. Outside that, Japanese whiskey please!
Night in the local or night out in town?
These days, I much prefer drinks in The Bridge 1859 or my local Mulligans of Sandymount. On the rare occasions I do float into town, it wouldn’t be uncommon to find me in Peruke & Periwig, Anseo, Bruxelles or the Jar.
