Burren Storehouse

The Storehouse - Music and Food Venue

The Burren Storehouse is the place for live music gigs, special events and great food. Homemade pizzas with a variety of toppings come straight from the built-in wood fired oven, while char-grilled local meats, fresh fish and shellfish are given the flame treatment on the charcoal grill. The menu changes every night, but it will always reflect the locality and the season with locally sourced ingredients like fish, shellfish, artisan local meats and poultry.

The Roadside Tavern Gastropub

The Roadside Tavern - Gastropub

Step inside the cosy lounge and take a step back in time. The low ceilings and traditional polished wooden bar are still intact, and walls are adorned with pictures of musicians, that have played here on many a lively night. Wide selection of beers wines and spirits available. Tour groups welcomed, and combined visits to the Burren Smokehouse and pub arranged.

Burren Microbrewery

Burren Microbrewery

Available Exclusively at The Roadside Tavern and The Burren Storehouse

The Burren Microbrewery produces a range of ales all available exclusively at The Roadside Tavern and The Burren Storehouse. So you will have to go to Lisdoonvarna to taste them, and maybe meet the man who created them. Enjoy a pint of Burren Blonde, Gold, Red or Black by the fire in The Roadside Tavern, on a cold winter night when the wind is howling round the Wild Atlantic Way, and you’ll step back to an Ireland of old!

The Burren Smokehouse

cold smoked Irish Organic Salmon

Supplying Smoked Salmon All Over The World

This family-run business was set up in 1989 by Birgitta & Peter Curtin. The quality of their Smoked Salmon has grown exponentially from the pubs, hotels and restaurants in the Lisdoonvarna area to now supplying smoked salmon all over the world, within 48 hours. Carefully sourcing their quality raw materials for the Burren Smoked Salmon, Trout and Mackerel they control their own quality standards with backup of regular testing from independent laboratories and regular checks from organisations who certify them.

Our Review of The Burren Storehouse at The Roadside Tavern

The Burren Storehouse is a brand new music and food venue, a place to watch sport events and more right next door to the Roadside Tavern. It was inaugurated in May 2015 when the Burren Slow Food Festival Banquet was held there.

Wooden garden furniture fills an airy space. A  bar in the corner marries reclaimed timber with a modern look, and serves a full compliment of drinks and sassy cocktails,  as well as the range made here by Peter Curtin at The Burren Microbrewery. Burren Black stout, Burren Red, an Irish red ale, and Burren Gold, a continental lager style beer are a trio of craft brews available exclusively here and a welcome addition to Ireland’s new wave of craft beers.

Great food completes the picture. Homemade pizzas with a variety of toppings come straight from the built-in wood fired oven, while char-grilled local meats, fresh fish and shellfish are given the flame treatment on the charcoal grill. The menu changes every night, but it will always reflect the locality and the season with locally sourced ingredients like fish, shellfish, artisan local meats and poultry.

The Burren Storehouse is the place for live music gigs and special events.  A full list of upcoming gigs and events is available on the live gigs listings on their website.
