Pick your festival:

Ireland is well known for its excellent produce, amazing beers and world-class whiskies. But we are now distilling incredible gins that use the farmed and wild ingredients of their localities to flavour their spirits. The Irish Gin & Tonic Fest is a 32 county celebration of Ireland’s finest gins. Now into its third year,  its running in 2018 from June 23rd – 30th.

Any licensed bar, restaurant or hotel in the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland can get involved by showcasing one of the many festival Irish gins served with a tonic of their choice for the week of the festival. Registration is free and is now live. It can be done in 3 simple steps by hitting the button on the top right of this page. Once the venue enters in their details, we’ll edit them and get them live as soon as we can. 

All participating venues’ details will be listed alphabetically on our site and divided up by the county. As soon as the festival starts, the public will be asked to vote for their favourite Irish Gin & Tonic of the festival by using the #IrishGnT on Twitter & Instagram or by telling us on our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/GreatIrishBeverages. After a very successful festival last year that saw 227 venues across the island of Ireland come on board,  An Púcán in Galway won the public vote for #BestIrishGnT! It’s a fantastic Irish gin & tonic made with Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin, fresh chilli & mango and Fever Tree Indian Tonic Water




For anyone who wants to enjoy a sneak preview of the Irish gins and tonics that will soon be hitting the nation, we are throwing two opening parties on Saturday  June 23rd in Urban Brewing. The first one is on at 1.30 – 3.30 and the second from 4.30 – 6.30. At each party, for just €15 you can enjoy a full serve of an all Irish Gin & Tonic and get to sample over a dozen Irish gins that hail from every province in Ireland. Tickets for the 1.30pm – 3.30 pm party are available here and the 4.30pm – 6.30pm party are available here

Irish Gin & Tonic Fest is made possible with the kind assistance of Fáilte Ireland and the amazing Irish gin brands we are working with. Each of the brands will be hosting a special event during the festival, so please stay tuned to our social media for more details!
