If cocktails are more your thing, try their Sangria Verde made with Chardonnay, elderflower liquor, melon, green apple, and mint, or their Blood Orange Blossom featuring orange vodka, orange liquor, blood orange puree, and honey.
Activity – DeMay After Dark, DeMay Spa, Limerick
If a night of relaxation sounds like a dream for you and your girls, then DeMay After Dark is just what you need.
