Located in Dublin’s historic Liberties, Pearse Lyons Distillery, Dublin’s only boutique distillery, is a five-minute walk from The Guinness Storehouse. Nestled in the former Church of St.James, this distillery has a colourful history dating back to the 12 Century.
On tour of the distillery and surrounding graveyard, guests are introduced to the compelling characters from Dublin’s famous distilling and brewing district. This district, rich in culture and tradition, was once a place of booming industry known as The Golden Triangle.
The Pearse Lyons Distillery produces some of Ireland’s finest small batch Irish whiskies and celebrates the Irish tradition of storytelling on each guided tour. Guests enjoy a sensory experience as they are brought through the distilling process, before enjoying whiskey and gin tastings at our tasting bar. Guests can choose from a guided tour and tasting experience, to an art of distilling experience with our head distiller or a whiskey and food pairing experience, with local seasonal produce.
All booklets, interactives and welcome video are translated in seven languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Chinese and Portuguese).
Guided tour of the site, taking in St. James’s graveyard, distillery and four tastings, which include Pearse Original, Distiller’s Choice, Founder’s Choice, a 12-year- old single malt and our limited-edition Sherry-Cask, Cooper’s Select.
