Discover real artisanal Irish whiskey distilling at Kilbeggan Distillery - the oldest distillery in Ireland, dating back to 1757. See for yourself the traditional method of mashing in oak mash tuns, fermenting in Oregon pine vats and the new Kilbeggan malt spirit flowing from the 180-year-old pot still.

A guided tour of Kilbeggan Distillery will take you back in time to discover how Irish whiskey was made during John Locke’s ownership of the distillery during the 19th century before bringing you into the present where you can hear, smell and taste Kilbeggan Irish whiskey as it is distilled today.  The perfect marriage of the past and present makes Kilbeggan Distillery an authentic Irish experience not to be missed.


" We had a wonderful experience trying to find relatives. We had a private tour guide, Patrick, who took us to the end of the farthest peninsula. found distant cousins and in the end found dad's second cousin. He was professional and courteous."

"Once you experience a private guided tour, you will never consider a coach tour again! Jim is personable, knowledgeable, and an excellent driver. After 7 days in Ireland, I can say my favorite memories are those spent on our private tour. Best money spent was with Ireland West Tours."
