Description
Holy Smoke is an award winning restaurant, specialising in pit-smoked BBQ. Fresh Irish meat is smoked in-house daily with organic wood and charcoal, coated with home-made dry rubs, finished on our grill for that mouth-watering Pit Smoked BBQ taste. Amen! Best Newcomer in Munster in the RAI's 2017. Now home of the first Donut Burger in Ireland!
