The Grim’s Dyke is gearing up for the first Harrow Whiskey Festival as they prepare to showcase the finest malts and blends Ireland has to offer

The inaugural festival will also feature the recent winner of the world whiskies award for best Irish Malt; Teeling.

There will be a dedicated Ireland Whiskey table which will feature the likes of Bushmills, Cooley, Connemara, Jameson, Inish Turk Beg, Kilbeggan, and Paddy.

The festival will run over January 15-16 and a sell-out of tickets is expected, and the hotel are pleased to be a part of a unique festival experience that will provide a ‘residential element’.

The opening night kicks off with a night of music and craic and as the hotel is the former home of Sir William Gilbert (Gilbert & Sullivan) so it will be no surprise that Irish and other music is going to be on the agenda.

The Harrow Festival website explains some of the history of Whiskey in Ireland, which is widely regarded as the birthplace of Whiskey and with Bushmills as the world’s oldest distillery.

Tasting sessions for the shorter sessions start at £14 and main sessions at £19. There is also a 5-course Distiller Banquet at £36 including tastings. Options with accommodation, some food and tastings on two days are available at £99 each.
