Our home base is an outdoor kitchen situated in the lively surrounds of the Franciscan Well Brew Pub‘s famous beer garden. Where the brew pub now stands was the site of an ancient Franciscan monastery, the Shandon Friary.

Amazingly, monks were baking and brewing at this very location as far back as the 12th century. So it’s very appropriate that our home base houses both a pizzeria and a micro-brewery.

We first set up shop in the Franciscan Well in 2009. What started out as a one-night-a-week pop-up pizzeria in the beer garden, grew into a full-time residency and we now have a custom-built permanent outdoor kitchen.

The brew pub hosts highly-rated brewery tours, as well as gigs and music sessions on a weekly basis. Highlight events annual calendar include festivals such as the upcoming October Beer Festival.

While the venue is renowned for its beautiful, historic beer garden, there is plenty of indoor seating. Plus, there is also a gem of a cocktail bar upstairs. Monk Bar opens Thursday through Sunday evenings and is known for its cosy atmosphere and innovative concoctions.

There is always something happening at our home base in the Franciscan Well. Be sure to follow our social pages for updates on events.
