Ribs & Wings Weekend at An Poitin Stil

An Poitin Stil hosted its first Ribs and Wings Weekend last week. The finger licking event launched on the 15th of November and ran through to Sunday 17th. The event proved to be a crowd pleaser having the kitchen completely run out of every ribs and wings they had to offer.

With hot and sticky dishes to get some heat into you such as Mexican style chipotle ribs served with guacamole and corn salsa it wasn’t for those with a delicate pallet. For those who really wanted to take a walk on the dark side there was the hot devil chicken wings. Leaving you quenching for a beer and having it really hit the spot.

The event which no doubt will become an annual event was the talk of Rathcoole.

We’re excited to see what meaty dishes The Head Chef comes up with next year.

Summer Grillin’ 19

Joels was on fire last weekend with its annual summer grill weekend menu. Head Chef Joe created a unique menu that brought smoke and fire to the grill with an array of herbs and spices to create an exciting twist to summer grilling. The menu had a range of mouth-watering dishes. From our delicious seared sirloin steak, served on a bed of baby leaves with lentils and couscous. Offering a fresh, modern alternative steak dish to our pescatarian friendly grilled sea bass, which was cooked in a lemon and chive house butter with roasted cherry tomatoes and minted baby potatoes. Bringing your taste buds to life! The Summer Grill had everyone talking and for all the right reasons.  

Joels team of chefs enjoyed curating these fresh recipes, putting some fire under the menu for a weekend. Our customers enjoyed having fresh new mouth-watering grilling ideas which no doubt they will try to replicate at home.

Summer doesn’t last forever, and unfortunately, neither does grilling season so until next year’s fresh new summer Grill menu that’s a wrap!

If you and your family or friends joined us for our summer grill, we would love to hear about your experience.

Many of the original beams are used in the support structures and in the front public bar where the counter dates back before the 1970s. There are many unique displays scattered throughout the property including a letter sent from a passenger on board the titanic the day of its first and only sailing. There is General Tom Thumbs Jacket, The football & tickets used in Crooke Park on Bloody Sunday in 1928 along with many other sporting memorabilia and genuinely traditional Irish pieces.

This property is one of Ireland’s most famous eateries known all over the land for its ability to cater for all tastes and pockets it has Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner available all day every day.
