Wich distillery to visit in Ireland?

Postby kljostad » Wed Jul 10, 2013 7:34 pm

Hi!

I´m going to Ireland in a few weeks time. We are going to visit most parts of the country, and I would love to visit a distillery while we are there. Does anyone have anything to recommend?

I have already visited Busmills, and Jameson is not very interesting. Are there any more?

I hope for your help.

Regards,
Kjell

Cooley Distillery
Kilbeggan Distillery
New Midleton Distillery
Old Bushmills Distillery
Dingle Whiskey Distillery

Those are your distillery choices. I have not been to any of them. Midleton makes the Jameson's Irish Whiskey. I think Cooley would hold the most interest for me.

You can do tours of Kilbeggan, Bushmills, Bow Street (museum, no longer operating), Midleton... Not sure about Dingle. You have to arrange a tour in advance at the Cooley Distillery. It's more an industrial type plant.

Thanks, Aidan!

We are staying close to Midleton for a few days, so I will visit them. We are also staying in Dingle two nights, and I have sent them a request to the distillery. I will do the same to Cooley, ase we are passing by not far from the distillery.
