Great brewery visit. Have to admit beers aren't my thing but Rascals may have converted me. Our guide Dean was amazing and the whole place has a great vibe. My brother who is a beer drinker was impressed with the selection offered at the tasting.

The tour was great! Our guide John was very knowledgeable and was great craic to boot! It was great to see the process of brewing from the bags of grain to the canning line. The tasting menu at the end of the end was delicious and a great way to round out the tour.

Pizza was yummy. Happy Days and Big Hop Red beers, both great beers and went down very well. Tour led by John was very informative, enjoyable and funny. Tasting of the beers and discussing flavours and aroma was good. A great way to end a visit to Ireland.

Great informal work experience. Had a beer before the tour, then tour when we were all assembled for it. It was a nice engaging informative tour of the founding, how beer is made and what their speciality is. Then great and beer & pizza afterwards.

I along with five friends went to Rascals Brewing Company on a Saturday afternoon in July and it was the perfect way to catch up, learn about craft beer and enjoy pizza/pints afterwards.

We did the premium tour and thoroughly enjoyed the tasting tray of drinks afterwards to properly immerse ourselves in the Rascals experience. The tour itself is the perfect length and you really become aware of their humble craft beginnings and the blossoming future of the company.

The pizza and pints afterwards were bliss and it is one of the nicest pizzas available in Dublin. As a veggie, the menu was full of options and the menu was clear with ingredients. I got the Buffalo Saints and would thoroughly recommend! (As well as the Basil & Raspberry Saison pilot beer - which I hope they release on the market very soon).

The Rascals staff were more than welcoming, very friendly and made the experience better than it already was.

I would highly recommend visiting for the tour or even just for the pizza and pints. It's only a short walk from the nearest Luas stop (Blackhorse - one stop after Drimnagh on the Red Line) and I look forward to returning again!
