McGill’s Brewery was founded by Joe McGill. It is located in the Gaeltact region of Murreigh, Waterville, in Iveragh in the South of Kerry, Ireland. It is the first microbrewery on the Iveragh Pennisula. McGill’s beers are produced to the highest standard of quality. Each beer is unique to the area of South Kerry. They reflect our local heroes, culture, and history. In our small brewery we handcraft our beers with care perfecting traditional Irish beer styles using our state of the art brewery system. We hope you enjoy tasting our beers as much as we do producing them. ‘Sláinte agus fad saol agat’ (Health and long life to you).
