The brewery is based the old creamery building on Spa Rd.,Dingle. Opened in 1888 the creamery became the economic epicenter of the Dingle Peninsula and was a vital commercial center for the area, especially after 1916 and the following troubled years which had left the economy, especially agriculture, in a perilous state. The owners of Dingle Brewing Co., have been mindful of the place that this building has in the history of the area and have lovingly restored it, retaining its charm and character. By running the brewery and also offering tours to the general public and tourist market the Dingle Brewing Co. hope to restore the level of importance which this building had previously enjoyed and make it an essential part of the Dingle experience as well as providing employment for people in the town. As well as offering tours they will be producing ‘Tom Crean’s’ Premium Irish Lager’, the first pint of which will be poured, quite fittingly, in the South Pole Pub, Annascaul, Co. Kerry. The very pub, which the great man Tom Crean ran after retiring from his Antarctic expeditions. The lager will be available initially in selected osupplied as demand dictates. The Dingle Brewing Co. is aiming to rejuvenate the unique atmosphere of socialising in an Irish pub by producing a premium Irish lager which will appeal to both the public and the publican alike and provide a focal point for friends to get together, enjoying that unique atmosphere, each others company and a pint or a glass of ‘Crean’s’

For 7 euros there is a self guided tour and a pint. If you don't want to pay that, they seem to be flexible and you can forgo the pint. It is interesting to read about Tom Crean and his exploits. Also some detail on the brewery. A very small craft brewery which you could actually tour in less than... More

Visited with my wife and 6 year old. Total cost of €14 for a full tour of the "craft" brewery - also known as Crean's. There is no tour guide but there is plenty to read on the walls about the industry, the brewing process, the history of the building from when it was a co-op and of Tom Crean.... More

Find this brewery, and enjoy both the tour and the beers they produce. The guides are informative and fun; the beers are delicious and plentiful. We also stopped at Tom Crean's South Pole Inn, which he began after voyages to Antartica! One excellent book about his ( and others) adventures: 'Endurance'.......there is even a statute of Mr. Crean across the... More

fantastic local brewery with a very tasty beer but the real item to see is the history of Tom Creans history. An Antarctic South Pole survivor. What a man. Be overwhelmed! I have since drank a glass or two of the Creans lager and very much enjoyed it.

We dropped by spur of the moment when we discovered the following day was going to be rainy and we didn't want to make our way there in bad weather. The tour was educational and I especially enjoyed the portions about Tom Crean and his expedition to Antarctica. Our visit to Dingle was right in the middle of our 2-week... More
