TEN BEST IRISH BEERS #7. Lander's Malt house in Kinsale has been serving beer since the 17th century. Today it is known as Kinsale Brewery. The water in the brew is from actual wells in southern Ireland. The light hued beer has a bitter taste at first that fades with light floral undertones.
Derrynamuck in the Glen Of Imaal is a cottage dedicated to the memory of Michael Dwyer, a celebrated 1798 leader. It is now well known as the Dwyer-McAllister cottage for it was here that a group of Irish rebels led by Michael Dwyer were hiding when they were surrounded by British troops. Samuel McAllister died when he drew enemy fire to allow Dwyer to escape, and thereby prevent further bloodshed as the British troops were killing innocent farmers in nearby cottages to reach Dwyer.
