Come to Walsh Whiskey Distillery at Royal Oak (the home of The Irishman and Writers Tears) in Ireland’s Ancient East where centuries of history rhyme with the hope of a new era. Our doors are open to visitors for personal tours of the distillery, one of the largest in Ireland, where our team of local distillers will demonstrate how we are unique in producing all types of Irish whiskey (pot still, malt and grain) in the one still house and using mainly manual controls.
The tour takes approximately 1 hour and tour packages are available from €15 per person (including a taste of our premium whiskeys).
Our tours are as follows:
ROYAL OAK JOURNEY – €15
From grain to glass, this educational and entertaining, fully guided tour is the perfect beginning to your whiskey journey.
