Nestled among the rolling drumlins of the north east corner of Ireland, our farm distillery is at the forefront of Ireland’s spirits renaissance.
The Echlinville Distillery is located on the Ards Peninsula in County Down near Ireland’s most easterly point.
Situated on the shores of Strangford Lough, Echlinville’s Distillery in Northern Ireland is surrounded by an internationally recognised Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The rocky shoreline and rolling hills around our distillery are steeped in 9,000 years of history. Follow in the steps of St Patrick on a serene lough shore walk or take to the water to explore the hundreds of hidden islands that make Strangford Lough one of the world’s most stunning waterways. At the end of the day, relax and refuel with locally produced artisan food and drink and enjoy stunning views over the lough towards the Mourne Mountains.
Located one hour from Belfast and two hours from Dublin, The Echlinville Distillery is easily accessible from both of our island’s capitals.
Whether you a planning a day trip to Strangford Lough or taking the time to enjoy everything the area has to offer, no visit would be complete without a tour and tasting at our Irish whiskey and gin distillery. We look forward to welcoming you.
We offer a range of visitor experiences from our Tour & Tipple to gin tastings, whiskey tastings, and bespoke group events. Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and smells of Ireland’s first farm distillery and discover the journey of our spirits from fields to glass.Book an Experience
Enjoy a walk through the historic Echlinville Estate along our new visitor walkways, which are due to open in June 2022.
A newly constructed network of pathways will take you on a journey through the beautiful grounds of The Echlinville Distillery and Manor House. Take in the sights of our distillery orchard, home of the Echlinville Apple which was first bred here by estate gardener John Logan in the early 18th century. Stroll through the fields where we sow, grow and harvest the barley used to distil our spirits. Cross our Grade B1 Listed stone bridge to visit the oldest coral clad Folly in Ireland – a stunning ornamental garden feature built by the Echlinville family as a demonstration of the wealth and status.
Our walking trail will be open to the public, not just those who are participating in a distillery tour.
We look forward to welcoming you.
