It was a sunny Sunday afternoon when upon meandering up and down the Kilkenny streets that we happened upon this little gem. Bridies General Store is like stepping back in time. Every square inch of the store is filled with nostalgic sweet treats and odd items such as snuff, or bath salts, step through the saloon doors and you are immediately transported to a bar filled by the elegance of a by gone era, wood paneled walls, marble tables, lovely tiled floors set the tone, it is breathtaking, it really is a place to have a quiet drink on a cold night, step through the back and you are greeted by a walled garden, dotted with benches, storm lanters, victorian styled gazebo’s, flowers and fairy lights, are looped and linked between seats we happily spent the afternoon swinging on the garden swing sipping cold drinks, it really is such a lovely place to be.
I was so taken with Bridies, I insisted Dave take photographs, he was more than happy to oblige to take some great shots for me to share with you. Have a gander, and the next time you are in Kilkenny, go and have a cold glass of Gingerale and lime in the garden.
