History of Dillon’s Courtyard and the Old Bond Store, Ballina
Ballina was originally one of Ireland’s major ports. The Old Bond Store Warehouse (now Dillon’s Bar and Restaurant, Ballina) was built in the early 1800s beside the river Moy. It stored the imported liquor and porter that had been placed under Custom Seals until the appropriate duty had been paid.
Dillons Terrace was of significant commercial importance to the area, and is steeped in local history. The stone floor in Dillon’s Bar originated from Kilmainham Gaol and a huge chimney breast in the bar was once used as a hopper to process grain.
