Pearse Lyons Distillery is Dublin’s only independently, family-owned distillery. Located in the former St. James Church in the heart of Dublin’s Liberties, the award-winning distillery produces Pearse Irish Whiskey.

Named after the late Dr. Pearse Lyons, founder and whiskey innovator, the distillery opened its doors in 2017. Born from passion and family tradition, Pearse along with his wife Deirdre aspired to create a distillery like no other in Dublin. Paying homage to their ancestors, five generations of coopers in Dublin, the distillery experience takes you on an immersive journey where you discover and explore the art of Irish Whiskey distillation and the unique culture of The Liberties, Dublin.

Known for its intimate tours and tasting experiences with local storytellers, we invite you to join us for the ultimate Irish Whiskey experience. Be one of a handful to meet and chat to our distillers and taste our range of limited editions and distillery exclusive whiskeys. Blend and bottle your own whiskey with our in-house experts and enjoy seasonal local produce which is paired beautifully with Pearse Irish Whiskey.

Pearse Lyons Distillery was awarded a Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Award in 2020. Winner of Best Dublin Visitor Experience 2019 at the Irish Tourism Industry Awards, the distillery is a must-see when in Dublin.
