Bailey’s Bar & Bistro has now re-opened with an exciting new extension that includes a new State-of-the-Art Kitchen, Private Conservatory Dining, Sun Terrace and an additional 40 seats in a wonderful light-filled and beautifully-stylized newly built space at the front of the Clanard Court Hotel.


The hotel revealed all and opened it’s Bailey’s Bistro doors again last Thursday. The Clanard Court’s owners the Fennin Family including MD Mary Fennin-Byrne & General Manager Liam Corr, celebrated the opening of the new kitchen and bistro with some of the best craftsmen in Athy who made the extension project happen. A huge thanks from the hotel goes to all the local companies involved Caffrey Construction, Aaron Kelly Electrical, Cliff Perse plumbing contractor, Cormac Dooley engineer and Christy Byrne Painting plus Teamwoodcraft from Ballybrittas. A superb job delivered on budget and on time…a real showpiece of local craftsmanship and building talent!


With the new state-of-the-art kitchen facilities, Head Chef Mark Phelan & his Kitchen Team have also been able to create even more sensational dishes and menus for the Bistro and enhance Bailey’s Really Good Food Philosophy all over again… this involves only top quality food suppliers and produce with an emphasis on seasonal, artisan, local and nationally sourced ingredients.
