The home of Boatyard, County Fermanagh, was always a huge pull for our founder Joe McGirr, whilst he was drawing up plans to open a distillery. Not only was it his home and where he grew up, but also it is a place of such beauty.
The Boatyard Distillery is dominated by two connected lakes that collectively are known as Lough Erne.
Enniskillen, the county town, lies on a short stretch of river between these lakes. Our distillery isn’t just about making spirits here, we celebrate the area and love to have visitors. When you visit, here are a few experiences not to be missed.
Erne Water Taxi, simply the best way to see Fermanagh is by boat. Becoming immersed in the Lakeland landscape is the perfect way to develop a thirst, keep your eyes open for any nice-looking distilleries.
