    Ireland’s Ancient East logo

    We are proud to work in partnership with Ireland’s Ancient East, as operated by the National Tourism Development Authority. Their aim is to inspire visitors to uncover intriguing stories of Ireland’s past and allow you to discover the rich and colour history of our region. Something we fully support and celebrate.

    Here at Kilbeggan we take pride in the preservation of ancient traditions that have been passed on from generation to generation. We are the oldest licensed distillery in Ireland dating back to 1757. A visit here allows you learn how Irish whiskey was made in decades past and how real artisanal Irish whiskey continues to be distilled today.
