Pick your festival:

The Irish Gin & Tonic Fest will return in 2018 from June 25 -30. Please stay tuned to our social media for details. Below you can find all the info about the 2017 edition, which we loved hosting! 

After a very successful festival that saw 227 venues across the island of Ireland come on board, we’re delighted to say that An Púcán in Galway has 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. We would actively encourage you to pay them a visit as soon as you can and savour the finest Irish Gin & Tonic in all 32 counties! 


We would like to thank all the amazing Irish gin brands we worked with for the festival. They hosted some amazing events and helped us sell out two events in Dublin and London!

Please stay tuned as we are now working on assembling everything for the Irish Cocktail Fest. It’s running from October 9 – 14. 


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 second year,  its running in 2017 from June 25th – July 1st

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 or by telling us on our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/GreatIrishBeverages.  Last year’s competition was won by Davy Mac’s Bar in Waterford and it has earned them massive acclaim! 

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!

For anyone who wants to enjoy a sneak preview of the Irish gins and tonics that will soon be hitting the nation, there will be a special party on the rooftop bar of Odessa Club, Dame Court D2 on June 16th. Tickets available here. And we’re throwing a closing party for the festival over in London at the 40 Foot Brewery in Dalston on July 1st – stay tuned for more details! 

 We are currently migrating between hosts. Please bare with us while we update our database. Some venues do not have all their information updated but we will redeem this shortly!
