Ireland is just a T-shirt away!
Vine Cottage Bar
April 2020 May 27, 2020

This month’s pub is the Vine Cottage Bar in County Wexford. This traditional Irish Pub is rich with history and has been run by four generations of the same family since 1894. The original license can be dated back to 1759 when the pub was located in the village surrounding the Tintern Abbey. At the end of the 18th century, the entire Tintern village left their homes and houses and moved to new estate buildings one mile south to Saltmills. The local pub, then known as the Inn at Tintern, was also moved and renamed Vine Cottage – reflecting the vines that were planted on the pub’s scenic new grounds.

The Vine Cottage Bar overlooks Bannow Bay, scene of the first Norman landings in 1169, but the area was inhabited by Vikings long before that. Visitors enjoy soaking up the sun in their spacious beer garden while contemplating the vast history of the area. The ruins of the Tintern Abbey are just a mile away, making Vine Cottage an ideal venue for a drink or afternoon tea while exploring the area. From the ‘Inn at Tintern’ to Vine Cottage Bar stand centuries of history which make this little area much more than just another tourist attraction – spending time here is an experience not to be missed!
