Description

Whiskey at the Wake

Wednesday, March 27th, The Palace Bar, 7 p.m.

On March 27th, join Sweny’s soapy front-man P.J. Murphy, Palace Bar back-man Willie Aherne, whiskey writer Fionnán O’Connor, and an ensemble cast of rare old brand reps, rare old reprobates, and rare old bottles for a raucus night of whiskey tasting, banter, more banter and song. All proceeds donated to the Finnegan-like survival of Sweny’s Chemist.

Aided by some of the leading voices and donated rarities of Irish whiskey, The Palace Bar will also be uncorking an exclusive range of its own past and present bottlings in the high spirited company of the guys behind those liquids and the volunteer staff behind Sweny’s itself. This is a one-time pour so don’t miss the glass.

The son of a distillery manager, James Joyce gave immortal breath to the voices of his city and it is our pleasure now to return that favour and support the voices still reading him aloud. Based in a disused 1840s pharmacy that famously featured in chapter five of Ulysses, Sweny’s is a volunteer-run non-profit reading space that hosts free daily reading groups, free cups of tea, and free bits of daytime banter to anyone and everyone who happens to drop in. From curious locals to global scholars to young students, retirees, tourists, and now dear familiar faces, Sweny’s plays home to a very broad family and we’d love you to join us for some lovingly poured drinks in a bar that’s no stranger to our literary past.

Along with the staggering support of the Palace Bar, this event is made possible by kind endorsements from Cooley Distillery, Irish Distillers Ltd., Paddy/HiSpirits, Teeling Whiskey Co., and Tullamore Dew.
