Overview
More
The brewery is based the old creamery building on Spa Rd.,Dingle. Opened in 1888 the creamery became the economic epicenter of the Dingle Peninsula and was a vital commercial center for the area, especially after 1916 and the following troubled years which had left the economy, especially agriculture, in a perilous state. The owners of Dingle Brewing Co., have been mindful of the place that this building has in the history of the area and have lovingly restored it, retaining its charm and character. By running the brewery and also offering tours to the general public and tourist market the Dingle Brewing Co. hope to restore the level of importance which this building had previously enjoyed and make it an essential part of the Dingle experience as well as providing employment for people in the town. As well as offering tours they will be producing ‘Tom Crean’s’ Premium Irish Lager’, the first pint of which will be poured, quite fittingly, in the South Pole Pub, Annascaul, Co. Kerry. The very pub, which the great man Tom Crean ran after retiring from his Antarctic expeditions. The lager will be available initially in selected osupplied as demand dictates. The Dingle Brewing Co. is aiming to rejuvenate the unique atmosphere of socialising in an Irish pub by producing a premium Irish lager which will appeal to both the public and the publican alike and provide a focal point for friends to get together, enjoying that unique atmosphere, each others company and a pint or a glass of ‘Crean’s’

Toured the local brewery. An ok experience. This is a small brewery and is informative mainly by talking to the guy at reception. Self guided it doesn't take long but there is good info on posters as you go.

Small operation (1 beer) with a very interesting story. Their self guided tour is well done. You will surely enjoy a pint at their bar afterward!

Went in early for the tour. The tour was about 20 minutes. The hospitality, fun and taste makes this a tour worth doing (and I'm an expert). Not a large commercial tour a family affair where the fun, stories and beer speaks for itself. James...More

Had a nice visit to the brewery with friends, but for sure the star of the experience was the pint! Tom Creans really is a great beer! Beautiful boat bar and fun staff up for a chat and a bit of Craig!

The brewery is definitely closed permanently. I don't believe the beer is being made elsewhere.

You can walk into their pub (right behind the offices) and have a sample or a pint of their beer, talk with the barkeeper, look over the exhibits, buy a souvenir, and learn mostly about Tom Crean all for free. To tour... More
