What makes this tour special

Over the last decade, several new distilleries have emerged across the Island of Ireland, a country with a great history of distilling whiskey. Located in the heart of Ireland, the Boyne Valley is the perfect destination to discover this history by visiting 3 distinct distilleries including tastings of their best spirits on this day trip from Dublin.

On your private day trip from Dublin, you will: 

The Boyne Valley is not only the home to some of Ireland's oldest and most famous distilleries, including the Old Kilbeggan Distillery, which dates back to 1757, and the nearby Locke's Distillery, which was established in 1757;  but is also home to a number of modern distilleries that continue to make the region an important centre of whiskey making in Ireland. 

The Whiskey-making tradition in the Boyne Valley has always been closely tied to the region's agricultural heritage and its access to clean water from the River Boyne. The limestone soils in the region were particularly well-suited to growing barley and other grains used to make whiskey, which many distilleries today continue to use in their production.

The River Boyne also provided a means of transporting whiskey to other parts of the country and beyond, while the nearby town of Drogheda was an important port for exporting whiskey to the rest of the world.

Embark on this whiskey-making journey to the Boyne Valley with your whiskey specialist and discover what this great region has to offer!

Please note all guests must be above the age of 18 to enter the distilleries
