Storytelling with Peter Curtin

Gifted storyteller Peter Curtin, owner of the Roadside Tavern and master brewer, is a fountain of historical knowledge and knows stories which would have been long forgotten. Peter was born at a time when storytelling was still a cherished part of Irish life. He was born in the very pub where you will meet him to listen to true stories about real famous personalities who came to the area and were influenced by it.
