A selection by DERMOT NOLAN, Master of Wine

On this website we have home, hours, news, social media, staff, and wines pages. To get in touch about anything you can email us or call (01)5441777.


The Wine Library is a small shop and currently has only two (?) staff - Dermot Nolan MW, the owner, and Traci Conroy.

Dermot Nolan MW

Dermot is a Master of Wine (MW) since 1997 and is, therefore, one of only 369 MWs in the world. Since the MW Examination was first held in 1953 only 432 people have ever passed! Dermot has worked in the wine trade since 1990, being involved in retail, buying and education since then.

The selection of wines reflects Dermot's interests over the last 27 years. There will be a strong emphasis on the wines of Australia, Chile and South Africa, as well as classic French wines, Mosel rieslings, old Rioja and various other wines which have impressed Dermot over time.

Traci Conroy

Traci works part-time in The Wine Library and brings a wealth of retail experience to the business. Although this is her first job in the wine trade she brings a great personality to the shop. She will shortly start her wine education by taking the WSET Level 2 Certificate Course. Traci is very experienced in social media as well and she manages The Wine Library's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Buddy Brown

Of course, we cannot leave this page without mentioning our wonderful canine friend, Buddy! He's staff too, you know.
