We were passing through Kilbeggan and decided to make a visit to the old distillery! It only cost us 8 euro each for entry! We decided to pay the lower price and not have a guide. The leaflet we were given explained everything we needed to know!! The building and the history were very interesting, with displays of the old methods used which included the machinery, the tools and even the renovated water wheel in operation!! After viewing the oldest exhibits we went through to see how the whiskey is distilled...and produced! The smell from the vats was extreme to say the least!! After our tour we went through to the Whiskey Bar for a free taste of Kilbeggan Whiskey, which I have to say was lovely. Once we had tasted the whiskey we were given our Kilbeggan whiskey glasses to keep! So for 8 euros, we got the tour, the whiskey and the glass......now that is value for money!!! We ended our trip by having a lovely meal in the restaurant (no waiting or booking). The staff were all friendly and the food was great!! There is plenty of parking which is also an added bonus!
