Alltech To Convert St. James’s Street Church Into Distillery

The historic church – which has been closed since 1954 – recently changed hands for €690,000, with the American-based Alltech company now planning to invest a further €5m on converting the building into a distillery. The American animal nutrition company, which was founded by Irish-born Dr Pearse Lyons, also plans to open a visitor centre in the hope of luring some of the Hop Store's one million visitors to cross the road. The St James's facility, along with two other new distilleries that are due to open in the same neighbourhood, will transform the dilapidated Liberties into the country's premier brewing and distillery quarter. In the 19th Century, the area around St James's Church was known as the "Golden Triangle" of distilling; boasting Jameson, Powers and a slew of smaller distilleries. The triangle was also home to the city's coopering [...]

Traditional Irish Pubs Staying Strong

Staff at one of Dublin’s most iconic pubs have refuted claims that the future of the Irish pub is under threat. Delegates to a conference hosted by the Licensed Vintner’s Association recently heard how pubs and bars in Ireland will need to differentiate their offering in order to survive in a changed marketplace. Despite this, a spokesperson for O’Donoghue’s traditional Irish pub has expressed her firm belief that there’ll always be a place for the traditional pub. “Tourists continue to be attracted to our pub for the music and craic on offer”, she said. Chief Executive of the Licensed Vintners Association Donall O’Keeffe told those at the conference that the pub trade was undergoing significant change and publicans need to keep ahead of the competition. The prospect of enjoying Irish pubs is often a key factor in attracting tourists from [...]

‘The Irish Pub’ to get North American Premiere

Alex Fegan’s documentary will have its North American premiere at the Toronto Irish Film Festival on February 28th at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. It will also screen at the Chicago and Boston Irish Film Festivals in March. ‘The Irish Pub’ will be released in cinemas in Canada and the USA during summer 2014 and then will be launched on DVD and released on-demand. The Irish documentary celebrates the important institution of Irish society, the pub, and the Irish people, known as publicans, who run the pubs. Their families have been running the bars for generations, and the film is full of unique, warm and witty characters. The film was a one-man production whereby Alex Fegan directed, produced, wrote, recorded and edited the feature. Read IFTN’s interview with Alex Fegan here.
