Amazing tour! Was entertaining learning about their whiskeys but also the churchs history, as the distillery is located inside a centuries old church with attached graveyard, both steeped in history and restored. Most importantly the guides were very knowledgeable and passionate about their stuff. And the whiskey was incredibly delicious. Was surprised at how much I enjoyed this. I would definitely recommend and do again.

This was one of the best whiskey distillery/ Irish history tours we ahve been on. Sheila our guide was informative, fun (or good crack, as it is referred to in Ireland) and knowledgeable

Great tour, absolutely recommendable! The distillery in the church cannot be compared to other distilleries!

Good guide and a special location. Different from other distillery.
