On the way home after a few drinks out the other night, we stopped at the Dan O’Connell, and found, to my pleasant surprise, that they have also kicked off their mulled wine season.From what I recall it was a delicious brew as well. Served at a perfect temperature, with a strong anise smell but well balanced on the taste buds. The citrus cut through nicely too. The atmosphere hit the spot as well, considering it was cold out and I was all excited about having my first mulled wine of the season!

The bar staff also mentioned there was the possibility of doing a spiced cider this winter as well, so keep a look out for that.


Would I order a second? Yes, and I would have if it hadn’t been closing time.

Would I return to the venue just for it? Considering there was mention of a spiced cider I think I have an obligation to head back.

Will I be back next year? No doubt I will.
