Visit the home of Tullamore Dew located in the original 19th-century bonded warehouse in the town of Tullamore, County Offaly. Conveniently located on the main motorway (off Exit 5 on the M6) from Dublin to Galway, Tullamore Dew is a great place to stop, take in a tour and have a bit of lunch on your road trip.
The distillery offers two types of tours: The Original & The Special Reserve
The Original: A classic tour taking you through the brand’s history and whiskey craft. You’ll follow the process to its completion, explore the turbulent history of the brand and finish off with a tutored tasting of 3 Tullamore DEW expressions. Admission from €8.00.
The Special Reserve: For real enthusiasts, this advanced tour includes a tutored tasting of 6 exclusive aged whiskeys, allowing you to savor and understand how the distillery patiently ages and finishes the whiskey in specially selected casks. But like their whiskey, the Special Reserve tour takes time—allow two hours this premium level tour. Admission €25.
There is an impressive bar downstairs, a restaurant (with excellent fish and chips, of course!) and a gift shop--so you can easily lose yourself for a couple of hours. The Visitor Center is the only place in Ireland where you can purchase a bottle of the Old Bonded Warehouse Release - a Tullamore D.E.W. whiskey specifically blended and bottled for the Visitor Center.
