Hartes was re-opened in December 2009 by Paul Lenehan and Ronan Kinsella. Formally known as Ollie’s or the Vatican this bar was always known to be a busy and well run establishment.
Unfortunatly it closed its doors in 2004 like a lot of other pubs and lay drormant until December 2009 when re-opened and renamed as Hartes of Kildare. Paul and Ronans ambition is to create a hospitality business where service, quality, value for money and consistency are always the focus.
Paul and Ronan are brothers in-law and they bring together a wealth of experience and knowledge gained in Ireland and abroad. They are proud members of the Restaurants Association of Ireland, the Vintners Association of Ireland.
