There are 2 distilleries in Meath offering tours with tasting. Both are right beside the famous River Boyne and use its pure water as a key ingredient for their whiskey.
Slane Distillery is housed within the 250-year-old stables of the iconic Slane Castle estate. The new distillery pays homage to the resilient nature of the heritage and the surrounding lands of The Slane Castle Estate. Their storytellers will immerse you in the wonderful world of whiskey. The fabrics of the Conyngham family tapestry are carefully woven through an interactive and immersive tour of the state of the art working distillery. Finish the tour in the best way possible, with a taste of signature triple casked blend, Slane Irish Whiskey.
Must be 18+ to book a tour. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult
