Owner description: Situated right in the heart of Ireland, there is an incredible experience that has been waiting for you since 1829. Join us at the newly renovated home of Tullamore D.E.W. Irish Whiskey and immerse yourself in the history and magic that lies inside the walls of this 19th century bonded warehouse, where our whiskey making tradition began.Located on the banks of the grand canal in Tullamore, the Visitor Centre has been beautifully restored to all its original glory. Once inside, you can enjoy a true Irish welcome and a guided tour which blends both audiovisual and traditional storytelling to help you see, smell, taste and understand the craft, time and passion dedicated to each glass of Tullamore D.E.W. Irish Whiskey.The Tullamore D.E.W. Visitor Centre is just over an hour from Dublin, located off the main Dublin to Galway motorway. You can also get to us by rail - we’re just a stone’s throw away from the Tullamore railway station. So call in today and join us in raising a glass of complimentary Tullamore D.E.W. Irish Whiskey. We’ll be here waiting to welcome you.

“Brilliant attraction!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

It is extremely easy to find, right in the centre of Tullamore. It's not so far away from the M6 (Dublin-Galway) and it's definitely a stop-over.

The building is quite small but the guided visit was extensive and for just 8€ (good value). The lovely guide was always extremely pleasant and nice and took us through the whole history of the DEW and the process of making whiskey. As she often said it is so easy we are able to make it at home... not so sure :) . It was never too boring and in the end we had a whiskey tasting session with thorough explanation of the difference between the qualities of the drink.

One extremely positive aspect of this visit is that it didn't end at a store or with the staff pushing you to buy souvenirs. But we ended up buying... well done!

Wouldn't mind going again tomorrow and definitely recommend to all.

“worth a visit”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Tullamore Dew Heritage Centre is a wonderful and interesting way to spend an hour or two in Tullamore, the staff are very friendly and informative, the little cinema with the history of the building and of making whiskey from start to finish was very interesting! the reconstruction of the inside of the furnace was very well done, the tour of the building was interesting and informative. not too long!, the best part was the samples of whiskey in the beautiful bar! im not a whiskey drinker but enjoyed the three different ages of whiskey, The shop was well stocked but only with bottles of whiskey and related items. The building is lovely and is definitely worth a visit. You can have coffee and snacks in the downstairs bar, and it is beside the canal.

“interesting visit”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

We enjoyed our tour of Tullamore Dew and learnt a lot about whiskey and its history in Tullamore.Our guide Rose Mooney was thorough and entertaining and made our visit very pleasant.The videos were great and very informative . We loved it . The only down side was the coffee shop and their cakes. The coffee was grand but the cakes looked unappetising and upon buying scones found them doughy, heavy and just not nice. We probably won't be back for a long time but if we were we would give the coffee shop a miss.
