Lonely Planet Experiences: Private Whiskey Distillery Excursion

Spend a day sampling some of the finest whisky on this distillery tour! <br><br>Drive to the Hidden Heartlands of Ireland and to the river Shannon. Travelling into the centre of Ireland, your first stop will be to Kilbeggan Distillery for a guided tour. Kilbeggan Distillery produces Lockes Whiskey which has been on this site for a few centuries and boasts old machinery and traditions as you see the whiskey making process in full. <br><br>Your route takes you a little further west to Lough Ree and a nice pub lunch in the sleepy little village of Glasson. After lunch, you will be brought into the historical town of Athlone where you can drop into Ireland's and possibly the oldest working pub in the world, 'Sean's Bar'. Sean's Bar now boasts its own whiskey and you will learn a little about Lough Ree and its connection to the origins of whiskey making. Passing by Athlone Castle and the River Shannon, you will finish up enjoying a tour at the Tullamore Dew Whiskey Distillery.

Vert enjoyable experience at this museum. Everything so well preserved and presented you can see the owners have so much love and appreciation for the past. Was lovely to speak to the owner and hear how he has been collecting for the past 40 years. A great trip down memory lane.

This little museum is beautifully kept and well laid out. The exhibits are clean and nicely presented. Having had a chat with the owner we felt his love for the place and his pride in being able to share it with us. It brought back many memories of our past.

We visited here today, a lovely simple day where memories of the times I used to stay with my granny during the summer holidays came flooding back,,,,,,, the couple that privately own and run the museum were lovely, and talking to them you would know they love what they have,,,,, if your in Athlone go here,,, over 7 thousand items of items seen and used in years gone by

Seeing all the items from the pubs brought back wonderful memories from when my parents owned a pub. The entire collection was impeccably presented and the owner was so knowledgeable and a pleasure to meet. A real hidden gem not to be missed by old and young.

Absolutely full of interesting articles relating to life in Ireland in bygone days. Very reasonable at €7 entrance. The owner accompanied us around and was a mine of information. A little out of the way but we’ll worth the effort to locate it.
