Description

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.

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.

Our pitmasters John Relihan and Decky Walsh will serve up and present an exquisite six-course meal and within each signature dish, you will uncover the art of low-and-slow BBQ.

Food and beer expert Caroline Hennessy will walk you through the process behind the craft of beer brewing and share expert pairing techniques to complete each dish.


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.

In fact, Decky’s strong belief that animals that feed and nourish us must be respected throughout their journey is reflected in every aspect of his cooking. Having trained under Irish top chefs, Decky also spent time in Australia discovering the Aussie BBQ style and then introduced the art of cooking low-and-slow to several parts of Ireland.
