West Kerry Brewery / Beoir Chorca Dhuibhne
West Kerry Brewery (or Beoir Chorca Dhuibhne in Irish) is a small traditional brewery in the West Kerry Gaeltacht on the Dingle Peninsula. The first brewery in Kerry since the 1800’s, we are 100% authentic and brew and package our own beer, we are the most westerly brewery in Ireland easily found on the Slea Head Drive, part of the Wild Atlantic Way. Here, Adrienne Heslin enjoys the accidental pleasure of being the first woman in Ireland who brews beer in her own pub (being here since 1993).
Emphasis is on low volume quality beers, bottle, cask and keg conditioned and unfiltered. The beers are brewed with its own well water which is 150 feet below the brewery, Irish grain and fresh yeast.
The brewery is set in a mature garden with botanicals, which are experimented with in seasonal specials, making the beers truly authentic and indigenous.
The brewery is hugely fortunate in the spectacular setting, a mature garden of 25 years, cupped, minutes from Smerwick Harbour between Brandon Mountain, Máirthain Hill and The Three Sisters. Gallarus Oratory is just a mile away and The Riasc Monastic site is just minutes away, to name but a couple of attractions in this area of rich heritage.
