Casey's of Baltimore
It's always a good day when a craft brewer sets up shop and finds success on the Wild Atlantic Way, so let's raise a glass to the fine beers of the West Cork Brewing Company. The WCBC is the nano-brewing brainchild of three busy guys – Dominic Casey, Kevin Waugh and Henry Thornhill – who have found a home for their brews in the basement of the renowned Casey's Hotel and Bar in Baltimore, West Cork. Kevin is the brewer and, along with a solid science training, he has brought a farmer's market expertise to the venture. Three brews have been created by the team – Sherkin Lass Pale Ale, Roaring Ruby Dark Red Ale, and the newest of the trio, the brilliantly named Stout X Stoutwest – and all three sound like just the ticket at the end of a day touring the West Cork peninsulas as you navigate the WAW.
But, of course, long before the guys dreamed up their nano-brewery, Casey's was a landmark destination in beautiful Baltimore. Home to good hospitality and good cooking, Casey's is a West cork standard bearer, and you will find comfortable rooms here, a comfortable dining room in which to enjoy classic fish cookery, and a lively bar where it's fun to spend time in the company of a Sherkin Lass or a Roaring Ruby or a Stout X Stoutwest.
