How we Aim to Keep Visitors Safe at Pearse Lyons Distillery

Although our doors were closed to the public, our team continued to work tirelessly in the background. Our distillers continued to distill new make spirit, while our sales team supplied an abundance of hand sanitiser to local hospitals, businesses, and food shelters in the greater Dublin area.

In recent weeks, our focus changed to reopening Pearse Lyons Distillery to the public. Our team have designed a simple icon diagram to show visitors how we aim to keep everyone safe, while enjoying and experiencing our unique whiskey distillery.

How we aim to keep visitors safe at Pearse Lyons Distillery

  • Pre-booking online and queuing system: All tickets can be purchased in advance of your tour. Visitors with pre-booked tickets will use our fast-pass system.

  • Hand Sanitiser Stations: There are several hand sanitising stations through the site, with one at every entry and exit point.
  • Multiple Tasting Areas: We have created a number of tasting areas where guests can enjoy their Pearse Irish Whiskey tasting while socially distancing in comfort.
