Seasonal Dishes Highlighting Irish Produce

Thomas Meagher Bar at The Granville Hotel Waterford

The Thomas Meagher Bar

The Granville’s Thomas Meagher Bar is named after the designer of the Tricolour – the Irish national flag. An intimate cosy space, with the feel of an Irish pub rather than hotel bar.

Book in for a Whiskey flight from the ever growing Irish Whiskey collection that General Manager Richard Hurley has sourced personally and is proud to speak about.

The Bianconi Restaurant

The Bianconi specialises in seasonal dishes which highlight Irish produce. A showcase for all that is good in Irish eating. You’ll find smart appetizers featuring south east coast seafood, Irish smoked salmon, and house favourites like the Granville Hotel pate. Meats mains may include Comeragh Mountain Lamb, the fresh catch of the day from local boats, and good Irish steaks and beef dishes. House desserts follow with a good choice of specialist teas and coffees.

Our Review of Granville’s Thomas Meagher Bar

The Granville’s Thomas Meagher Bar is named after the designer of the Tricolour – the Irish national flag.

An intimate cosy space, with the feel of an Irish pub rather than hotel bar. That means a warm welcome from the staff and a fine array of food and drinks. First off, admire the ever growing Irish Whiskey collection that General Manager Richard Hurley has sourced personally and is proud to speak about. Between 40-50 Irish Whiskeys are displayed in a special wooden cabinet behind the bar, neatly labelled with names. Some special ones you might not have heard of before. Book a Whiskey Flight and become a certified Whiskey taster! The bar also has a wide selection of alternative drinks including gins ad signature cocktails made with fresh herbs from their rooftop herb garden, wines, and a selection of coffees, teas and hot chocolate. A good place to enjoy a pre or post dinner drink or to meet friends or business acquaintances over a spot of lunch.

Enjoy the lively atmosphere and elegant old fashioned feel. Stephen Hooper is the long standing Head Chef at The Granville. He has worked together with Richard for many years developing seasonal menus throughout the hotel. Stephen’s experience of local sourcing, coupled with access to The Granville’s own herb garden on the roof, means plenty of homegrown tastes to explore. A full Carvery Lunch menu is served in the bar each day from 12.30pm to 2.30pm. Hand carved meats and a variety of seasonal vegetable accompaniments prove extremely popular with hotel guests, day trippers and workers from local businesses.

A separate bar menu also runs through the day, with salads, wraps, sandwiches and paninis and plenty of vegetarian options. Special dietary requirements are always looked after. Meat and fish lovers will find great value on the bar menu too. The counter displays a selection of freshly baked cakes and chilled puds of the day. A good time to try one is in the afternoon with a refreshing pot of tea, before or after a bit of retail therapy or sightseeing in the city.  House breads and scones, preserves, muffins and cupcakes are served all day everyday. A small covered outdoor smoking terrace is situated to the rear of the bar.
