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’

Checking out the local brewery(ies) is always something we try to do when we visit a new place, and this one was really nice. We signed up for the tour (which is a self-guided walk through the brewing facility, with lots of signage along the way), which included a pint of their beer. The beer was quite good, and we...

Self-guided tour that cost 7 euros. Tom Crean's is smooth tasting lager - very crisp. A nice little tour that allows you to see the working brewery (rare in most tours now) and learn some brewing process and history about Tom Crean himself. You get the pint either before or after, which itself is worth 4 euros (you can get... More

We took a tour of the Dingle Brewery...it is a fun, small business and they were so much fun. This was included in our tour and we really enjoyed our time here.

Stopped by for a brief tour and to sample their beer. Was very happy with both. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. On my flight to Dublin on Aer Lingus I asked for an Irish beer and was served one of these beers. I was surprised when I discovered that the airlines beer came from this brewery. If you are... More

My wife and I- along with our adult son- stopped here on Sept. 14. We had stopped on Sunday, Sept. 13 but found they were closed for normal tours on Sundays. The tour was nice- but nothing special- just a self-guided walk through their warehouse- with lots of story boards. The tour includes a pint of their current lager- Tom... More

Short guided tour, topped off with a pint. Great beer. Found it in Kilarney, Dublin and Aer Lingus. Hope it treaches the US someday. Great for a rainy day which this year is more than you want.

Loved the Lager - nice and crisp! Was disappointed that they only had 1 beer, but it was a good one, so I didn't go thirsty! I thought the unescorted brewery tour (with a "free" drink) was a bit over the top price wise - there are story boards, but I believe you can't beat a good human interaction and... More

Small brewery on the edge of town. Good Crean lager at their tasting bar. The self-guided tour was underwhelming but it did include a pint of beer at the end! Worth a stop if you have extra time to kill.

We had been to many brewery tours, but this one was different. got there around 5 PM, walked into the souvenir shop and saw a bar. Had a beer (or lager for beer snobs, or is that lager snobs), it cost the same as in any pub. The beer was good, and the other people at the bar (all Americans)... More
