The Purty Kitchen in Dublin recently launched a new al fresco dining space which is suitable for year-round outdoor dining.
The popular restaurant and bar is located in Dun Laoghaire’s oldest surviving premises.
300 Year History
The gastro pub was taken over by hospitality veterans Mark Heather and James Burgess in recent times.
Speaking to Hospitality Ireland last year, Heather said the team wanted the premises to stay true to its near 300 year history, but bring the pub into the twenty-first century.
Rich dark woods and warm ambient lighting were introduced to complement the existing hardwood floors.
'Old Port Town'
"We removed the many split levels and raised areas to increase space and open up the room, to boost the aesthetic and atmosphere," said Mark Heather last year.
"The artwork adorning the walls reinforces the history of the old port town of Dún Laoghaire."
The Purty Kitchen has now recently launched a new, year round al-fresco dining area.
The Purty Kitchen said the ‘The Courtyard’ will allow customers to enjoy all the benefits of eating outdoors, while remaining protected from the unpredictable Irish weather.
'Beautiful Al-Fresco Setting'
“Dining outdoors has always been a memorable experience for me and being able to provide a beautiful al-fresco setting for our customers, both existing and new, fills us with joy," said Mark Heather.
"The Courtyard menu has been created by our talented Chef and team and we look forward to welcoming the local community, and visitors from afar, in to experience The Courtyard."
