I met at an old school pal of mine, Stephen Dillon, at wine tasting a while back.

He was busy telling me about a tasting room he was designing for his Next Door off licence on Sundrive Road in Kimmage, Dublin.

Well, he sent me a wee note to say it’s done and open for business. While he uses it for beer and wine clubs, it’s available if anyone wants to host their own classes, tastings or wine meet-ups.

From the photos below you can see how much work has gone into it, perfect setting for wine courses and far more fit for purpose than the typical hotel room.

To book, you should call Stephen on 086 308 0464 or .
