Walsh Whiskey Distillery at Royal Oak is a world-class distillery producing Irish whiskeys by hand on an 18th Century estate in Ireland’s Ancient East region. Set deep in the heart of barley-growing country on the banks of the river Barrow, visitors can experience the ancient craft of distilling in a fully guided, multi-sensory tour of one of Ireland’s largest operational whiskey distilleries, and see first-hand how all three styles of Irish whiskey – pot still, malt and grain – are created under one roof. Afterwards visitors can relax and savour a taste of the award-winning whiskeys, with a range of tasting options to choose from, before strolling around the historic Royal Oak estate, taking in Holloden House (1755) and the beautiful scenery that makes Royal Oak the perfect place to craft exceptional whiskeys.
