Athlone Whiskey Walking Tour

Join us on the Athlone Whiskey Walking Tour where you will fully discover the centuries-old tradition of whiskey production in Athlone that encapsulates over 270 years of whiskey heritage and enjoy a few local tipples along the way!  

During the tour, we will delve into the history of our proud ancient distilling and brewing traditions in Athlone and learn about the distillers, brewers and town bailiffs of the past, who owned these thriving establishments. We will uncover the secrets behind their successes, failures and quarrels and visit some of the old historical sites where they once operated.

We will visit 3 local whiskey bars and journey through a range of Irish whiskeys along the way and discover what makes them so unique. You will also enjoy local chocolate pairings with two of your whiskey samples, to include 2 types of chocolate, specially made for the Athlone Whiskey Walking Tour, handcrafted by a local producer.
