The very popular Pins Bar at The Twelve Hotel, Barna Co. Galway has been awarded its first AA Rosette. Having already achieved two Rosettes for its Fine Dining Options in West at The Twelve, The Pins are delighted to earn their first Rosette for their superb offering. This latest rosette puts The Twelve in the number two position in the whole of
Ireland, second only to The Mount Juliette in Kilkenny.
AA Rosettes are awarded to hotel restaurants that achieve standards that stand out in their local area. They serve food
prepared with care, understanding and skill using top quality ingredients. “This is a fantastic achievement for The Twelve Hotel and for the west of Ireland as a whole” says Conor Faughnan Director of Policy at AA Ireland. “Barna is truly a beautiful part of the country and sampling The Pins delicious food, whilst drinking one of their
gourmet beers, really makes the experience.”
The Pins Bar has managed to do what so many other hotel bars fail to do, becoming a popular spot for both locals and guests. In addition to an incredible selection of whiskies, cognacs, armagnacs, rums, bourbons, vodkas and countless other fine spirits and beers, The Pins Bar is the perfect place to enjoy great coffees, interesting teas, breads 'just out of the oven' from The Pins Bakery and meals which showcase the finest of West Coast produce. You can surf the net for free,
meet the locals, catch a traditional Irish music session, or sip your pint in the kind of peace you only get in the West of Ireland.
Last year, The Pins Bar added to its food offering with the opening of Pizza Dozzina, The Twelve’s great new pizza kitchen
& deli which serves divine, skinny, traditional Italian pizzas, created in a magnificent wood burning pizza oven, shipped
specially from Naples, the original home of pizza!The excellent Pizza Dozzina pizzas can be ordered for take out or enjoyed in The Pins Bar and they have been a huge hit with customers. As well as pizzas, The Pins Bar offers delicious
sandwiches, small bites such as curry scented chips and large plates that include Slaney Valley Lamb Shoulder & Crisp Rib or Organic Connemara Sea Trout.

that takes your fancy.” Said Ernie in his review, continuing with “Service is attentive and
