Deep in the heart of Ireland, on the banks of the Grand Canal, stands a 19th Century Bonded Warehouse. Within the walls of this great structure, a legend lives. It’s where one man built an empire on a determined dream, where a whiskey making tradition blossomed and grew, where a founder learnt his trade and crafted an Irish whiskey worthy of his name.
This is the home of Tullamore D.E.W.
Daniel E. Williams was a man compelled to create. He had a vision of a whiskey apart, made to his standards, his way. He created and nurtured Tullamore D.E.W. as we know it today, the first triple distilled, triple blended Irish whiskey, setting the stage for all that would follow.
The Old Bonded Warehouse was the last place our whiskey would rest; the final leg on its journey before being shipped up the canal for distribution around the world. But where the casks moved on, the history remained. It’s this history that flows through the corridors of our Visitor Centre, where fans of the world’s finest whiskey can engage with history itself.
Like our whiskey, the Visitor Centre is for those who want a taste of the exceptional. It’s for those who search for hidden depths, embrace discovery and put their faith in the genuine.
You’ll begin with the birth of a brand and end with it in your glass – your very own personal tasting session. See how we use malting to trick our barley into growing, hear the tales of the distillery’s early workers and find out how the angels always get their share. Our full tour takes in every step of the artisan craft of whiskey making, each stage a story, told through captivating audio-visual media and the good old Irish charm of our expert guides.
The final step in every tour is a complimentary whiskey tasting. Putting your new knowledge to good use, you’ll pick up notes and flavours that previously went unnoticed. Three of our famous blends will be explored,
and with the legend unravelled, you can join us in raising a
glass to a whiskey worth waiting for.
To suit the know-how levels of Tullamore D.E.W. enthusiasts, experts and aficionados, we offer two types of tour. The first caters for the inquisitive, the individuals or groups who want to truly get to know their favourite whiskey. The second is for those well acquainted with the whiskey making process but want to investigate a little deeper.
Our classic tour, taking you through our brand’s history and the whiskey we craft. You’ll follow the process to its completion, explore the turbulent history of our brand and finish off with a tutored tasting of 3 Tullamore DEW expressions. Admission from €8.00.
The Special Reserve
For real enthusiasts, this advanced tour includes a tutored tasting of 6 of our exclusive aged whiskeys, allowing you to savour and understand how we patiently age and finish our whiskey in specially selected casks.

Not only do we offer a world-class tour experience, we’ve also got in-house, expert chefs creating delicious, artisan food from locally sourced ingredients.
Our chefs understand that some of you are on a tight schedule, and consider efficient preparation just as important as the quality of their food. Our restaurant is not only open to those on the tour, so if you’re passing by and want to indulge in the finest food in a historic and unusual dining environment, our friendly staff will happily accommodate you.
And of course, it’d be hard not to notice our Whiskey Bar. With barstools built from old whiskey barrels, expert bartenders on hand to serve up specially selected whiskey cocktails and stocking the biggest Tullamore D.E.W. collection a fan could imagine, our bar is the perfect place to take in the building’s charm.
After you’ve experienced the creation of the whiskey you love, you’ll have the opportunity to take home a memento from our gift shop. We stock our full range of whiskeys, but most importantly, the Old Bonded Warehouse release. This is a specially crafted, limited edition whiskey, only sold here in the Tullamore D.E.W. Visitor Centre. It was crafted to celebrate a homecoming – our return to the beautifully restored Old Bonded Warehouse, a true piece of Tullamore D.E.W. history.
When you visit, you’ll get the chance to take home this medium bodied, triple distilled whiskey with a mellow complexity and a smooth vanilla oakiness, the perfect end to a day of discovery.
Tullamore is 1hr from Dublin and Galway, just off Exit 5 on the M6. For full driving directions, please refer to the map on the left.
