Whether they are the fruit of great brands (such as Guinness), or small volumes for local pubs (micro-breweries are specialists), most are open to visitors. You will then have the opportunity to discover the manufacturing secrets of Irish beers… and even taste them!

From Guinness, to Beamish, to local micro-breweries, you’ll learn all about the processes involved in brewing Irish beer, and how to get that inimitable taste!

It must be said that most breweries in Ireland open their doors to the public to sell on site, but also to let you discover their ancestral secrets, used for centuries to brew quality beers. Whether you’re more of a Guinness, Kilkenny, or a lesser known but equally notable beer, you’ll find something to suit you!

Our favourites include the Guinness Storehouse, a museum dedicated to the brand’s empire, and the Dungarvan Brewing Company, a local brewery that is well worth a visit!
