What is the Golden Triangle?
Join the tour at the start point in the heart of Dublin City Centre on Eden Quay. Our stop is the first stop after the junction with Malborough Street.
Originally the Rainsford Brewery, Arthur Guinness chose the site for his new Dublin Brewery in 1759. For over 250 years the Guinness concern has occupied the site and started producing its first stout in 1787. The Guinness family have had a long and fruitful history with Dublin and on virtually every corner they have left their mark. The Guinness family have an indelible link with the City of Dublin. Today the Guinness Storehouse is Ireland’s most popular visitor attraction.
The arrival of the Teeling family in 2015 was a watershed in the history of the City. The Teelings are immersed in Irish Whiskey history and the distillery will be seen as a marker in the change from decline to the future from many years to come. For the first time in over 125 years a new distillery has opened its doors in Dublin. Based on traditional pot still methods this is your chance to see a traditional Irish Distillery in action at the heart of the Golden Triangle.
The Dublin Liberties Distillery
Opened in early 2019, the Dublin Liberties Distillery is a sign of the resurgence of whiskey distilling in the heart of the Golden Triangle. The Dublin Liberties Distillery aims to recreate the atmosphere that would have been so common in the early in the late 1800/early 1900s with a modern twist. The DLD tour mixes in local stories from days gone by and how they have influenced the distillery as it is today.
Roe and Co.
George Roe and Co was once the biggest distillery in the world! In their heyday Roe’s were as big a name in the Dublin business as the Guinness family but sadly became victim to decline in the cities fortunes. The site of the distillery was eventually taken over by Guinness and faded into history. In 2019 Diaego will be opening a new distillery on the site of the old Guinness factory power house just a few doors up from the site of the original Roe Distillery.
The Roe and Co Distillery is expected to open to the public in 2019.
Pearse Lyons Distillery
Thomas Pearse Lyons was an Irish emigrant who like many millions before him left this Island to make a life for himself and his family. In 1980 Dr Pearse Lyons founded Alltech in Kentucky which specialsed in animal feeds and later the Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company. Dr Lyons always remembered his roots in Ireland and that of his family in the Golden Triangle so when a chance to leave a legacy came he did just that and in 2017 the Pearse Lyons distillery opened its doors. This Distillery pays tribute to the history of the people in the neighbourhood in a very tasteful way and has the added bonus of a functioning distillery inside the old church building.
The Bow Street Distillery, which was established in 1780, is one of the oldest in Ireland. John Jameson was originally from Scotland initially managed the distillery and later took full control of the site in 1805 and in 1810 the John Jameson and Sons company was created. The stills ran cold for the last time here in 1971 when production moved to Co. Cork. The site however has still remained the headquarters of Irish Distillers and has been developed into a wonderful interactive visitor experience.
