The Pins Gastro Bar is all things to all people; its cosy ambiance makes it the heart and soul of our hotel, and a favourite spot with both locals and visitors in equal measure.
The bar offers a worldly assortment of artisanal cocktails, craft beers, rare spirits and a winelist of biblical proportions; and our food menu features a seasonally inspired mix of plates and bar bites.
Our renowned mixologists, sommeliers and chef make the bar more than deserving of its countless awards and accolades.
Try our “Absolutely Pinned” signature cocktail, crafted specially by our resident mixologist, while perusing the collection of books by the fire in the gastro lounge. Or sample our local Killary Harbour mussels accompanied by one of our gourmet beers.
The Pins is also a place to enjoy great breakfasts, coffee, organic tea, and breads 'just out of the oven' from our bakery
