The Powerscourt Distillery visitor centre includes six carefully-appointed tasting rooms, a distillery giftshop, café/bar and adjoining maturation facilities. The Distillery is delighted to host tours and meetings, receptions, and private dinners.
Set against the stunning backdrop of the Sugarloaf Mountain, nourished by pure Wicklow spring water, and enjoying a mild coastline climate, Powerscourt sets the perfect stage for distilling Irish whiskey.
The Powerscourt Distillery is in the Old Mill House on Powerscourt Estate. Dating back to 1730’s, this building has now been faithfully restored and extended to accommodate both production and visitor centre facilities. An adjacent warehouse for filling and storing casks helps to ensure a fully immersive distillery visitor experience.
Our Master Distiller Noel Sweeney is a globally recognised expert who has devoted some 30+ years patiently honing his unique skills. Passionate about his work and the production of the very finest of new spirit, Noel has been credited for the release of many international award-winning Irish whiskeys and in 2017 he was inducted into Whisky Magazine’s ‘Hall of Fame’.
In the interest of public safety and the absolute requirement for social distancing, we have decided to close the Estate, including the House, Gardens, River Walk and Waterfall, until further notice.
We have given the situation a great deal of thought and we understand that our visitors will be disappointed by this and we apologise for the inconvenience it may cause, particularly when being outside in nature is beneficial for mental and physical health.
At this time, we all have a social responsibility, including Powerscourt Estate, to minimise any harm to our friends, colleagues, and families. We will be reviewing this situation on an ongoing basis. Please keep an eye on the News Section of our website and social media for updates.
Thank you for your understanding and patience and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Estate before not too long. We hope you and your families are keeping safe.
