Pot Duggans reopens next Wednesday March 6th


It’s that time of year once again, winter is over, spring is here, and we can feel the days getting longer, and the call of Clahane is starting to come on strong. We reopen next week, and as always, we’ve made some tweaks and changes.Menu changes, Karaoke is back [ ie we finally fixed it] , bigger board game selection and lots more events this year tool. If you’ve any interest in running gigs, events, or being a vendor or particupant in Riveryard or our markets, get in touch, just reply to this email or visit the website.

Opening days are Wed-Sunday, and times are 4pm mid week, 12pm at the weekends. We may adjust that as we go along, we’ll see how it goes.

There’s a little present for those who read to the bottom of this page too, sure ya got that far, not many do, so ya deserve it !

anyway, on with the news…

The Wine Bar at Pots is the first new addition, taking over the main bar with two small rooms that look out onto the river Inagh. The wine menu will have over 20+ wines that can be bought by the bottle & 6 wines that will be done by the glass. To go with your wines, we will have a short menu of big & small plates to whet the appetite featuring locally sourced ingredients from the likes of Hugo’s Bakery, Moy Hill Farm & St Tola’s Cheese. To begin with, the wine bar will open Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 4pm with extended opening hours starting in Summer – we aren’t done just yet but I mean… think about it.. this menu, with that view 🔥

Next up we welcome back the amazing Ashley Gribben to the team as Executive Chef . She’ll be overseeing all things food at Pot Duggans & Riveryard so expect big & bold flavours throughout the menu – including Ash’s favourite middle eastern flair of course.

Ash’s big project this year has been getting The Melting Pot up and running with Lunasa Fermentation’s Darren Kirwan here at Pots who was with us last year. The Melting Pot will be a rotating collection of menus, changing every 8 weeks, serving everything from Ramen to Tacos, & Pasta to Shawarma. Round the world with delicious food every 8 weeks. Keeping both the customers and the chefs on their toes.

Their first venture will be a Noodle Bar running from March through to the end of April – expect Beef Pho, Pork Belly Ramen & some banging side dishes including crispy fried baby spuds (it is Ireland after all) with Japanese mayo & furikake. What’s better than a big bowl of broth to warm the body through the last of the winter months. Check out that menu below

Pizza Board returns to Pot Duggans under the careful supervision of the Brazilian Pizzaiolo, Cristian Marcos with an updated menu and specials throughout the year. Cristian is travelling to Italy this week to get some inspiration and gather ideas for our pizza kitchen and wine bar. Speaking of bars, we’ve Jack Daly running the show this year, so if you’re being asked to politely leave at the end of the night, Jack is on the case !

The party doesn’t stop with the food as we will have a full range of events from Live Music to DJs featuring Camcor Calling, Sunya, Paddy Mulcahy, Smileyface, Jamie Palta, Kenan Flannery & more to come. Of course we’ll be bringing back our famous Friday night Pub Quiz & Music Bingo. Sunday’s keep on keeping on with Bart & Trish’s Trad Sundays + a special on Paddy’s Day to kick us off. Certain sports events like the GAA, 6 Nations, Paris Olympics, Wimbledon, the Tour de France, Champions League and Irish internationals in whatever sports we can, we’ll show too. If you have any requests get in touch
