O’Briens Wine Festival 2018 was a major success, selling over 350 tickets and raising vital funds for Clare’s Wish Foundation. O Briens Wine Festival 2018, which took place on Thursday, May 10, gave attendees the chance to taste over 170 wines from over 35 of the world’s best winemakers, who were there on the night to speak about their wine. Winemakers from all over the world including Australia, New Zealand, France, Chile, Germany, Spain, and Italy will be travelling to Limerick for the event.
O Briens Wine Festival 2018 took place in the Strand Hotel on Ennis Road from 6 pm to 9 pm. Guests were given samples of all the wines available on the day as well as a complimentary Tipperary crystal wine glass to take home. O Briens Wine Festival 2018 will raise vital funds for Clare’s Wish Foundation, allowing them to continue granting wishes in 2018.
The annual O Briens Wine Festival 2018 raises funds for a number of charities and takes place in both Dublin and Limerick. Last year, the festival raised funds for Milford Care Centre.
Clare’s Wish is the only Irish charity granting wishes to Adults living with terminal medical illness. The Clare’s Wish Foundation, which was founded by Kevin Clancy in 2013, aims to bring the wish to life and to create ever-lasting memories for the wisher, their family and their friends. More than 50 wishes have been granted since the charity launched, providing respite from the normal routines of hospitals, doctors and treatments. Clare’s Wish receives no funding and relies solely on fundraising events.
