Our tour will highlight not only the distilling history of Ireland, but also its incredible recent surge in micro brewing across Ireland. You will travel through the mystical Burren, enjoy a drink in a typical village pub, and experience the thrill of live Irish music and dancing.
The Go West Whiskey & Micro Brewery Tours of Ireland are designed to showcase some of Ireland’s oldest and most famous distilleries and breweries.
With more than 30 different places across the country for Whiskey Tours to chose from, there is something for everyone on the Ireland Whiskey Trail. Relax and share some Irish “craic” with informed locals in some of Ireland’s best bars and pubs in Ireland. Enjoy the hospitality of some of the very best hotels in the country, where an excellent selection of whiskeys await you. Or stock up on familiar and not so familiar brands in our finest whiskey shops, where trained staff will inform and advise you.
We try to strike the perfect balance of craft brewery visits complemented with local quality food. Visit some local artisan food producers and smokehouses along the route and hear their story and taste their fine foods. The scenery in Ireland is so diverse, we drive through beautiful patchwork fields of green and see the dramatic cliffs of the West coast also. Add some heritage sites and local experiences in a small group tour which makes it all much more personal and fun.
