A Seafarer’s Guide to Kinnegarland: Brewery Boat Trip, Wednesday 28 June

Boat Trip Through Kinnegarland

Ever seen the Kinnegar from the sea? Or wondered where Scraggy Bay is? Any ideas on Limeburner, Otway or the Devil’s Backbone?

As part of Indie Beer Week Ireland, we’re going on a brewery boat trip of Kinnegarland on Rathmullan’s favourite charter boat, the Swilly Explorer. We’ll cruise up the Swilly to see as many of Kinnegarland’s landmarks as we can find, tasting a little of each beer as we go.

The tour departs the pontoon in Rathmullan at 5pm on Wednesday 28 June. Places are very limited and are available on a first come, first served basis. The boat trip costs €20 and is of course weather permitting.

To book ring us on 074 915 8874 or 086 830 1392. You may book for a maximum of two people.


Kinnegar Brewing Academy & Rathmullan House combine the theory and practice of brewing with country house hospitality

Rathmullan House

Not many breweries rub shoulders with 4-star country house hotels but Kinnegar is lucky enough to do just that. Those of you who have already visited Kinnegarland know that our taproom resides in the cellar of Rathmullan House, a much-loved seaside retreat on the shores of Lough Swilly. Now you have the opportunity to spend a weekend at the hotel while you learn the theory and practice of brewing.

Day 1 – Brewing Theory (at Rathmullan House)
We cover the cornerstones of brewing, from raw materials through brewhouse operations, fermentation, conditioning and packaging.

Day 2 – Practical Brewing (at Kinnegar Brewing)
As a group we will formulate a recipe for and brew a Kinnegar Special. So, put your wellies on and grab a shovel, it’s time to dig out that lauter tun!

This will be a hands-on experience so we can accommodate a maximum of 12 pupils on the course. For more information and reservations, visit the Rathmullan House website. If you entered our Festival competition to win a spot on this wonderful weekend, we’ll be announcing the winner this week!
