The Vintage Crop

  • As Kildare is rich in equestrian history, it is only fitting that our cocktail bar be named after Dr. Michael Smurfit's' great Irish gelding, 'Vintage Crop'...

    winner of the 1993 Melbourne Gold Cup, 1993 and 1994 Jefferson Smurfit Memorial Irish St Leger. This was the first Irish horse to surpass one million pounds in winnings.

    The sumptuous bar and balcony area overlook the wonderfully manicured lawns, adorned by a host of specimen trees such as great Irish Oak, Yew and Western Red Cedar.

  • International Spirits & Liqueurs

    Spirits, fine wines and liqueurs from all over the world plus premium champagne and Cuban cigars are show cased in this magnificent rich mahogany bar. The walls are decorated with racing trophies and memorabilia from 'Vintage Crop' and 'Media Puzzle' another Melbourne Gold Cup winner in 2002 from the stables of Dr. Smurfit. The Vintage Crop Bar is ideal for that Long Drink in the afternoon, pre-dinner cocktails or that very special after dinner digestive while enjoying a short hotel break in Ireland.

    Cigar Selection:

    A very fine selection of Cuban cigars is available from Cohiba to Montecristo to Romeo Y Julieta. The highlight of our cigars is the specially commissioned humidor, a miniature of the hotel created by Viscount Lingley, nephew of the Queen of England, who specialises in miniature reproduction. This masterpiece incorporates woods such as Maple, Holly, Dark Sycamore, Cedar and Mahogany.
