Afternoon Tea | South City Centre, Dublin 2

The surrounding were sumptuous. The staff make you feel extremely welcome and make your visit really special. All the staff were super attentive. After we went to have a little look around and a mr kennedy took it upon himself to show us the Constitution Room which was partially laid out for and event. His gave us a run down of the history of the hotel and the recent renovation. It was very interesting and the icing on the cake to our afternoon. Will most certainly be back again. More

Barbecue | South City Centre, Dublin 2

Who are the PitMasters, It all started as weekly BBQ’s with Beer and meat which quickly developed into an obsession? For James and Keith, the idea was simple, to use Real Fire, Real smoke to make Real BBQ, through American style. They pride themselves on using locally sourced Oak wood, Irish Farmed premium meat and locally butchered. We have developed all our own Dry Rubs, sauces and marinades, all made by the PitMasters and a closely guarded secret, all our meat is smoked using Irish Oak Wood and only wood in our custom-built American style Smoker for up to 12 hours. We specialize in Ribs, Brisket, Pork and Chicken, all smoked for a very unique flavor.

So if you enjoy BBQ, grab a beer and the beats will always be rocking.
