The Cellar

A highlight for many guests is a trip to Ballyfin’s well-stocked Cellar, just around the corner from the Bar. Guided by our expert sommelier, you can personally select your wine so that it is perfectly decanted and ready for you at dinner.

With its elaborate vaults, limestone columns and series of distinctive arched storage bins arranged like over-sized nest boxes, the cellar is a wonderfully atmospheric venue for wine tasting and private dining.

Among the highlights of the cellar is a group of wines from French chateaux with distinctly Irish names like Lynch. The Irish ‘Wine Geese’ winemakers of Bordeaux, who fled persecution at home, were among the most innovative viticulture pioneers of the eighteenth century and in honour of this Irish contribution to France, wines have been carefully selected for the cellar at Ballyfin from fourteen vineyards established by Irish exiles.
