Time to try the famous Smithwick's Experience in Kilkenny

Ireland, Kilkenny, Leinster
The unique Smithwick’s Experience Kilkenny will reopen on 15 July with exciting new spaces and improvements.

Picked from the land and seasoned by history, Smithwick's famous ruby ​​red ale has been brewed in Ireland since 1710.

Situated in the medieval heart of one of Ireland's coolest and most historic cities, The Smithwick's Experience Kilkenny gives you the opportunity to discover what makes Ireland's famous ale so popular.

The experience explores the Smithwick family's brewing heritage and over 300 years of brewing history on the site, originally settled in the thirteenth century by Franciscan monks who brewed ale long before John Smithwick established his brewery in the building in the early 1700s.

In addition to providing first-hand insight into the brewing process, local guides take guests on an exciting journey, introduce them to memorable characters, and allow guests to grind malt, stir wort, and smell the hops of a famous ale in its historic home.

As part of the re-opening, new investment and innovation has been added to the experience, including a striking new mural that celebrates Kilkenny's vibrant culture and rich history, and a new Smithwick's Fragrance Room. This sensory experience immerses you in the raw ingredients of Smithwick Red Ale and how they combine to bring the beer to life.

There will also be a new outdoor space opening later this summer where you can enjoy a cool beer under the stars.

At the end of the tour, guests are treated to a complimentary pint or soft drink if desired. You can also upgrade your ticket to try Smithwick's Pale Ale and Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale.

Discovering the history of Smithwick is one of the best things to do in Kilkenny, but there's plenty more to discover in a medieval town brimming with character and centuries of history.

A key destination in Ireland's Ancient East, Kilkenny offers lively pubs, world-class restaurants, including two Michelin-starred eateries, chic galleries and modern shopping, not to mention cool music sessions and some of the best festivals on the island.

Step back in time to explore Kilkenny's Medieval Mile, a labyrinth of alleys and cobbled streets lined with historic buildings that stretches from the magnificent twelfth-century Kilkenny Castle to the beautifully restored thirteenth-century St Canice's Cathedral overlooking the city.

Kilkenny is also a leading destination for high-end Irish arts and crafts; unique and stylish souvenirs. Don't miss the Kilkenny Design Center and the National Craft Gallery.

Kilkenny's cozy size, creative spirit and friendly atmosphere make it a fantastic place to explore the ruby ​​red of Smithwick and much more.
