Rosapenna Appoint Hibernian Pub Company to Create Coach House Terrace Bar

The Rosapenna Coach House Terrace Bar launching Summer 2018, designed in collaboration with Rosapenna resort owner Frank Casey Senior, built and installed by local men Dominic mcGroddy and Dugy McGlone – founders of Hibernian Pub Company.
