Hidden Ireland houses are united by their owners? authentic old-school Irish hospitality, so canap’s were served using produce from member houses including Bertha’s Revenge gin-cured organic salmon gravlax on homemade blinis from Ballyvolane House in Co. Cork. Guests also enjoyed B&Ts using Bertha’s Revenge, the distinctive Irish artisan milk gin, as well as the flagship beer of the Manor Brewery, Ireland’s highest brewery in the Wicklow Mountains – Mont, a ‘super premium’ craft lager – made by Hidden Ireland members, the Cully family of Kilbride Manor.

Chairperson of Hidden Ireland, Justin Green of Ballyvolane, officially launched the book, congratulating the publishers, author and photographer on a stunning job, impeccably done, and remarking that he expected there would be many Christmas stockings around the country this year with a large book-shaped package in them to thoroughly delight the recipients.
