Our tours have been custom-built to deliver a brewery and distillery tour with social distancing. As part of the measures we:
- Reduced the maximum number of people on board the coach.
- Require all passengers to wear a mask onboard - please bring one with you.
- Provide passengers Zoono 24 hour hand sanitiser upon boarding
- Coach fully sanitised prior to pickup
- Reduced tour capacity at Wicklow Brewery and Powerscourt Distillery. This may require a short waiting period between groups, depending on your tour group's size.
- Both venues have designed their tours to allow social distancing. For example, the Whiskey Tasting will now take place in a much larger room as the bar would be too intimate to allow the distancing required.
Wicklow Brewery Tour:
Brewery tours are for those who wish to learn more about The Wicklow Brewery and how we brew. Your guide will tell you all about the origins of the Wicklow Brewery and explain how we make our beers from the milling of the grain in the malt mill to the kegging at the end. Our tours are personal and up close. Sorry no high tech buttons to press or fancy digital effects, we offer just knowledge, humour and great taste.
Powerscourt Distillery Tour:
Enjoy a 60 minute fully immersive guided tour of the whiskey-making process. Experience firsthand the sights, sounds and aromas of a fully operational distillery, you will also visit the on-site maturation warehouse which is used for filling and storing whiskey casks.
Full tour experience; short film, visit to the distillery and maturation warehouse before going onto taste three samples of our award-winning Ferncullen Irish whiskeys.
