Athlone Whiskey Tours
Athlone was once a bustling hub of distilleries and brewery's. The earliest record of distilling in Athlone can be traced back as far as 1740 and brewing can be traced back to the 1730's!
We invite you to join us on a journey of discovery through the centuries-old tradition of whiskey production in Athlone that encapsulates over 270 yeas of whiskey heritage and enjoy a few local tipples along the way!
We offer two unique whiskey tour experiences here in the heart of Ireland. The Athlone Whiskey Walking Tour and the Viking Whiskey Cruise!
On the Athlone Whiskey Walking Tour, we will visit 3 local whiskey bars, visit some of the old historical sites associated with distilling and brewing in Athlone in times gone by and journey through a range of local Irish whiskeys. You will also enjoy local chocolate pairings with two of your whiskey samples, to include 2 types of chocolate, specially made for the Athlone Whiskey Walking Tour, handcrafted by a local producer.
We can also organise private walking tours for groups of 4 or more participants on request and subject to availability. Please get in touch for further information!
The Viking Whiskey Cruise can be booked in advance for groups of 20+ people. You will discover the fascinating history about Viking hoards, high kings, big battles and saintly scholars during a cruise on the River Shannon, while you will journey through a unique selection of Irish whiskeys from the Midland's region!
