    Interesting and informative tour with great samples
    Terrific, informative and interesting tour where we sampled the gin, vodka and two different whiskeys. Never liked him before but I would drink theirs again. Small batch, smooth whiskey. Recommend as a nice walk from Dingle town.
    Hi, With not being a gin drinker, liking our gin is a great compliment for us to receive! Thank you so much for the positive feedback and I hope we can welcome you again soon!

    Why are Dingle products special?
    We have been on numerous distillery tours, and in each one, I left with a better understanding of the product offering. Our guide was amiable - and very knowledgeable about the technical aspects of distilling vodka, gin, and whiskey - but every time we asked a question to help distinguish Dingle, the answer was "the same as any Irish whiskey." Clearly, the distillery has focused on marketing (attractive logo, name font, distillery building), but they haven't spent enough effort on the tour staff. We left unenthusiastic, in contrast to the Teeling tour we took 2 days later, where we were ready to buy their whiskey upon return to the US.
    Thank you so much for taking the time to review your tour experience. We are constantly striving to improve and I will relay your feedback to our tours team to ensure we better explain the nuances of our whiskey in the future. I also passed on your comments to our Master Distiller, Graham Coull. Here's Graham's take on what makes Dingle Distillery different: "If I were to describe (briefly) what makes Dingle Whiskey different, I would focus on distillation and maturation. The size and shape of the pot stills combined with the slow distillation rate creates a unique new make spirit, which has a balance of body and purity. Maturing the spirit in a variety of first fill casks ensures that the wood influence and, therefore spirit complexity, is maxismised. Add to this the fact that Dingle is a 'grain to bottle' distillery. The spirit is born in Dingle, nurtured in Dingle and only leaves Dingle Distillery when it is ready to do so. If you can return to Dingle one day, please let me know and I would be delighted to meet you and explain a bit more about what makes Dingle different." We would love if we got the opportunity to welcome you again. Thanks again for your feedback!

    Great Little Distillery!
    It was fun to taste the whiskey and talk about the process before the tour. The tour guide was knowledgeable and had a dry wit. We enjoyed seeing the smaller distillery with a nice local feel. Getting to taste one of their unique offerings was great as well and finally having a cocktail at the end was a nice way to cap it off. One suggestion, don’t do the tour right before leaving town especially if driving as merely had a couple of sips and a bit of the cocktail. Slainte’
    Hi, Thanks so much for the review, we are so glad that you enjoyed it! Please do come visit us again, hopefully you'll be able to enjoy all your drinks fully next time. Sláinte!

    Fascinating
    I love whiskey and now I know so much about it! I'm not a gin or vodka drinker but the samples we tried were delicious- and I also know how they made it taste so remarkable. Our guide was a good communicator, he didn't bamboozle us with loads of science or boring facts, he made if really interesting and enjoyable. A word of warning- eat well before you go!
    Hiya, thanks so much for your feedback - we are so happy to hear you enjoyed it! It is always nice to hear that non-gin/vodka drinkers enjoy our products, as we know they're not for everyone. I will definitely relay your comments to the tours team. Please do come see us again if you're in the area! Sláinte!

    Great we stop for a tour if your in Dingle!
    My wife and I love touring the UK on the bike and stopping at distilleries along the way. Dingle is one of the most unique Irish distilleries there is... Its raw and gritty but full of history and creates some fantastic whiskey! Our tour guide was Kathleen and the tour itself was informative and light hearted, and unlike Alot of larger distilleries you can take pictures whenever you want. If your in the area I think this wee tour is a bargain. The only disappointing thing is that you can't buy a bottle directly from the distillery... But you can from. Plenty of local suppliers. Cool wee spot, friendly staff and all round a great wee experience. Thanks gyys!
    Hiya, Firstly, thanks so much for taking the time to visit us and leave a review - we really appreciate that! We're so glad that you enjoyed your experience with us and will most definitely pass on your kind words to Kathleen and the rest of the tours team. Please do come visit us again and enjoy another drop with us! Sláinte!

    Dingle distillery
    The Dingle distillery is a great place to learn about the distilling of whiskey and other spirits (gin and vodka). Our guide was Murren, and she was very knowledgeable about the process and very passionate about the products produced by the distillery. We were treated to a drink of our choice at the end of the tour. Thoroughly enjoyed!
    Thank you so much for your positive review, we're so glad you enjoyed your experience! I've passed your kind words on to Muireann and she was delighted to hear them! We hope you'll come see us again! Sláinte

    A Experience in Dingle Not to be missed!!
    Well you can say that I have experienced some of the finer Whiskey Distillery’s around Ireland! My whiskey collection is a testament to this but when you meet and are guided by Kathleen Sheehy of Dingle Distillery in Co. Kerry, Exploring Great Irish Whiskey is brought to a whole New Level! The Passion and Knowledge of the Tour Guide made the Experience worthwhile, The tastings came a close second, with a 5 Star Experience overall Well worth the effort!!

    Great Tour to See the Making of Spirits
    This was our fourth tour of distilleries in Ireland and one of the best. It is not a big operation, but the guide was very enthusiastic and understood the process very well. When not a guide, he is working in the distillery making gin, vodka, and whiskey. This was the first time I was able to get into the actual distillation area while there was active fermentation. It was amazing watching the tubs with yeast bubble, swirl, and foam. The smell was incredible and it gave me a greater appreciation of the craftsmanship required. The tour included tastes of gin, vodka, and whiskey, with another drink added at the end of the tour. The Distillery is definitely worth visiting.
    Dear TravelMonkier, Wow - thank you for that wonderful and generous review. We are so delighted you really enjoyed our distillery. It is so nice to be able to showase our entire production are and to give our guests an insight into exactly how we produce our spirit. Thank you so much for visiting us and hopefully we will get to meet again on another occasion. Beir bua! The entire team at Dingle Distillery.

    A great experience
    This is a hidden gem a bit outside of town, but walkable from the town center. Dingle is a family owned crowd-funded distillery that makes a single malt whiskey, an enhanced gin and a vodka. Tours are held in small groups, with tastings at the beginning and end of the tour. A bonus is a complimentary mixed drink at the end. No retail purchases are available here, but the Dingle spirits are widely available in Town. The tours are about one hour, take you right through the actual processing facility and there is much history to learn about the company, town distillation procedures.
    Dear chasl153, Thank you for your lovely detailed review and for taking the time to post it . We are really happy that you enjoyed your experience with us here in Dingle distillery. Perhaps we'll have the opportunity to welcome you back to the distillery again at another time. Sláinte mhaith! All the team st Dingle distillery.

More than the standard distillery tour! I really learned some things about spirits and distilling. Our tour guide was extremely engaging and informative and it did NOT feel like a typical "canned" narrative. This distillery won the world championship for their gin in 2019 and it really is that good. The Centra store in Dingle had an incredible sale on it while we were there so I took advantage of that! They make vodka, gin, and whiskey and the tour finished with your choice of one of four cocktails. I highly recommend this tour!

A super fun and informative tour. Throughout the tour you taste the whiskey, gin, and vodka and learn how it is made. It’s an engaging tour and a great way to spend one hour. Not to mention the gin is excellent! If you’re staying in Dingle, it’s within walking distance. Highly recommend.
