When you enter the Writers Room at the Wicklow Heather Restaurant you are met by one of the finest collections of both Irish literature and Irish whiskey. Both are renowned throughout the world and in some instances have gone hand in hand in the creation! Whilst Irish literature has always been recognised Irish Whiskey has had a more dramatic life cycle from making the most sought after whiskey in the world 100 years ago to nearly disappearing altogether.
However, the future looks great once again when, in 2009, Irish Whiskey was properly acknowledged with Cooley Distillery being awarded the title of ‘World Distiller of the Year’! The Wicklow Heather, certainly has the best stocked Irish Whiskey Bar in Wicklow & one of the best in the land!
