New Grace O’Malley Whiskey Launches at O’Connell’s Bar

A brand new Irish whiskey launches in O'Connell's Bar in Galway this week, with a special pre-Patrick's Day party and live music event! Find out more here...

Grace O’Malley Whiskey is named after the legendary 16th century Irish pirate queen, born in Co. Mayo in 1530. This whiskey embodies her charismatic nature and timeless character. A natural clan leader and fearless seafarer, Grace O’Malley was not only a daring dealmaker but a ground-breaking provocateur. Undeterred to go against the grain, Grace’s warrior spirit lives on.

Kathrina Rupit, KINMX, is an Irish-Mexican visual street artist has designed a special mural artwork showing Grace O’ Malley in her role as a lionized warrior holding her weapons- a book and a pen, laid solidly on the foundation which the sword has carved out. With them, she writes her destiny.

This artwork is proudly displayed on the Grace O’Malley special blend whiskey, a unique blend of triple and double distilled malt and grain.
