Smithwick's Experience, Kilkenny Reviews

  • Great tour! Fabulous guide, very informative. Displays and videos are well done...not overly detailed but enough that we learn a lot. Tasting at the end was nice. I'm not a beer drinker, but I actually enjoyed their beer.

  • A really great tour with interactive sections, videos and example equipment that they show you. You don't pass by the actual floor where the beer is made but it is really well done to allow you to understand the process. The tour guide is great and the base ticket comes with a pint of beer including the new lager which is only sold in Ireland for now, although the classic and pale ale are better. Purchase your ticket online to save $2 but you can't reserve a time so you just show up and hope for the best (there are yours often so likely be ok) or ask to get the discount at the door.

  • More than you bargain for in the best of ways. I not only earned about beer, but got a full sense of the history of beer in Ireland. The tour guide knew the routine and you could tell they enjoyed their job as much I enjoy drinking their beer! I the tour in the tasting room was a great way to enjoy an early afternoon in Kilkenny. My wife and I agree this was the best tour event we did in a 10 day trip around the whole country.

  • We took the tour which is not cheap at the time 15 euros, but as a fan of the beer, it was well worth every penny. We had Kaylyn as a tour guide and it is a wonderful history lesson paired with the story of how they brew it. I especially enjoyed the modern technology used in this historic setting. It was really something to see and something that shouldn't be missed if in Kilkenny.

  • Absolutely enthralling. Wonderful tour guide (Simon). Much more hands on and personal than the Guinness Storehouse, a highlight not to be missed in Kilkenny.
