About Killarney Beerfest

Learn the Beer 101 from the best in the business with brewing demonstrations, tastings; meet the brewers, beer & food pairing classes and a whole lot more.

And because craft isn’t limited to beer there will be a tantalizing selection of home brewed whiskey, gin and cider to sample!

Browse the stalls, enjoy a masterclass or two and soak up the festive atmosphere and live music. Beer music and food, three of the best combinations outside of barley, hops and yeasts!

There will be lots to sample! You will need to buy tokens on the day of the event to exchange for a beer/drink and food.

STAY TUNED FOR 2018 DETAILS!
