    Our guided tours are hosted by our team of friendly storytellers, who will regale you with intriguing tales dating back to the 12th Century. Our distillery tours are small in size and in keeping with our boutique nature, so you can enjoy a more personal experience. • Each tour includes a guided tour of St. James' cemetery and takes in the history of the former St. James Church.  • Once inside our distillery, our storyteller will walk you through the distilling process from start to finish. Here visitors get to touch, taste and smell each step of distilling.  • Like all good whiskey tours, we save the best until last, with a special tasting of three signature Pearse Irish Whiskeys and our handcrafted Irish gin at our tasting bar.  • Visitors are then free to take a stroll through our gift shop and soak up the atmosphere in our adjoining bar, McCann's.

Connoisseur whiskey tour at an affordable price.
Aug 2020
In keeping things local and trying to give more at home during these times, my partner & I checked out this tour on a Sunday evening. Having been not overly familiar with the brand we decided to book a trip to visit.

As all visitors will see upon arrival in the short movie presentation This site has been recently acquired by the Distillery. Indeed it was also inspiring to see that the founder Pearse Lyons, Made his money in the U.S. and returned home with it to create Irish Jobs.

The facility is truly state of the art and all of the staff are 100% knowlegeable on their brand and product. Our tour guide, Tiernan, was a weath of information and guided us around in a relaxed manor.

The church (formerley St. James') has been paid much care and attention in recent years to restore it to it's former glory. Also the immaculatley fininshed displays around the site along with the copper pot stills, truly immerse the viewer in the whole process.

Last stop on the trip was at the gift shop, wheere we spoke to James, running that section. He was very friendly and talkative and did his utmost best, to ensure that we had the products we wanted when leaving.

Indeed all the staff at the site were engaging. I've talked with other staff on other tours, and it's as if they listen, but chime out some rehersed script to keep you happy. Here it's the opposite, your imput is valued and discussed with you.

I would highly recommend a visit. Whilst the tour itself seems relatively short, there's a wealth of information to be had...and some great whiskey too!

An entertaining guide to the making of whiskey
Aug 2020
This was a really nice surprise,this distillery is located in the Liberties in Dublin.

On arrival the staff were so welcoming in fact any staff member we met was so friendly and chatty we felt we were among friends. The first building we were in was the visitor centre its beautifully laid out and our tour guide was Tiernan who was great at keeping our attention and informing us of the whiskey making process.
We were guided through each stage of the process. I did not know much about whiskey but feel i was greatly informed. We relaxed and enjoyed our tasting samples. The distillery itself is inside the former St. James'church which is gorgeous.
This church has beautiful stained glass windows and is beautifully restored. We also visited the gift shop and were greeted by James who was also very knowledgeable.
We took home some lovely memories of the day in the shape of a bottle of original Pearse whiskey.
I would definitely recommend this tour.
On leaving we spoke to the gentleman on security who passed on some lovely recipe ideas for the whiskey.

This tour was fantastic, Sheila our tour guide was friendly and engaging. Emma our tasting expert was good fun and great at answering any questions we had. Pictures do not do this place justice, it’s beautiful! I did the gin tasting and my husband did the whiskey, lovely to do these side my side and learn about both of them. Best tour we’ve done.

Beautiful Whiskey Tour in a Church
Dec 2019 • Friends
What a beautiful venue! The tour beginning in the visitor centre building, followed by some outside time hearing about the history of the site and the colourful characters in the graveyard! Heading into the restored church building the stain glassed windows are an incredible back drop to the whiskey making equipment and the whiskey tasting bar!

Tour Cocktail Experience
Dec 2019 • Friends
Excellent Outstanding experience fantastic staff the Distillery Ambassador James O'Driscoll was fantastic and his able assistant Dave. Beautiful tour and fantastically crafted and blended Cocktails matched with local Irish farmhouse cheeses. Easily the best Irish Whiskey Experience beats Jameson Teelings and Roe's.

James has a fabulous knowledge of Irish Whiskey's the history and the next generation of Irish Whiskey's which are coming. Not to be missed.
