A SIX-COURSE FEAST OF PIT-SMOKED BBQ PAIRED WITH IRISH CRAFT BEER AND WHISKEY TASTING

Recommended by Taste Cork, Failte Ireland, and Ireland’s Ancient East.

As a proud participant of the Taste Cork Week, Holy Smoke invites you to embark on a unique gourmet journey and experience the best of Irish BBQ cuisine, prepared with the local meat that is cooked in Holy Smoke’s signature barbecue-style, low-n-slow, for four to sixteen hours. The BBQ dishes are then paired with a carefully chosen selection of beers from Cork’s microbreweries and Irish whiskeys, allowing you to taste Cork in all its richness and variety!

Our renowned pitmasters John Relihan and Decky Walsh will serve up an exquisite six-course meal and walk you through the secrets and preparation techniques behind each dish, so that you can walk away not only with a full stomach but with valuable knowledge and tips on re-creating the experience at home.


A true foodie and a published food author herself, Caroline Hennessy will masterfully guide you through the pairing of each dish, presenting and explaining the corresponding whiskey or craft beer that create that beautiful gourmet ensemble.

Historic venue

Holy Smoke is housed in the original Woodford Bourne Cellars est. 1875, which at one time would carry over 50,000 gallons of choice Cork and Dublin whiskeys, French Cognac, Jamaican Rum, and casks of wines, sherries, and ports, making it a perfect historic destination for this authentic gourmet experience. In its short time of opening, Holy Smoke has gathered both national and international acclaim and won the Best Newcomer Restaurant in Munster Award with the Restaurant Association of Ireland.
