Farmhouse beers from Donegal


Regrettably, all tours are cancelled for the foreseeable future as we take every possible measure to reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19.

NB: Brewery tours take place at K2 in Letterkenny!

In 2013 Kinnegar expanded from its miniature birthplace into a purpose-built 10HL facility tucked cleverly into the existing farmhouse environment where Libby and Rachel grew up and where they still keep their horses (and parents!) today. In late Spring 2017 the brewery moved to K2, a state of the art facility in nearby Letterkenny.

Visits to the brewery offer enthusiasts a complete overview of the brewing process, beginning in the malt loft and continuing through the brew house, the fermentation process, the conditioning cellar, and finally to packaging.


Christmas 2019 / New Year
We’ll run brewery tours on two dates between Christmas and New Year, when we know lots of Kinnegar fans have time on their hands and an appetite for learning about how their favourite beer is made.

Saturday 28 December, 2pm
Monday 30 December, 5pm

Booking is absolutely essential on 074 910 3890 or 086 830 1392.
Pre-payment will be taken for groups of 4 or more guests.

June, July, August, September 2020
Thursdays, generally at 5pm
We will also schedule Saturday tours at fortnightly intervals in high season. Keep an eye on the website for updates.

Groups by prior arrangement at all times.


Tours cost €10 and you must book in advance on 074 910 3890. Please give us a couple of days notice! Tours over Christmas and New Year must be pre-paid at the time of booking.

Tours proceed subject to six or more participants booking in. We will inform you in good time (minimum 24 hours in advance) if the tour is not going ahead.

Kinnegar’s signs, posters, glassware, T-shirts, hoodies and gift packs may be purchased after your tour. Vouchers for brewery visits are available, if you feel like giving your favourite Kinnegar fan a surprise.

Please note that Kinnegar is an operating production facility and its visitor amenities are correspondingly limited. No seating is available during tours. Parking is available on site. Visitors are welcomed strictly by prior arrangement.
