Welcome to the Boyne Valley Trails September Walking Festival.

Imagine, you could step back in time to 1820, and join the legendary John Jameson, the founder of Jameson Whiskey on a walking tour of Drogheda, where he once owned a Jameson distillery, five-storey stone malthouses, corn stores, and kept a prestigious family home in the town centre which still stands.

The distillery was in production for 150 years until it closed in 1968 by which time it produced Prestons 10 (Jameson whiskey).

Company founder John Jameson lived in a beautiful Georgian House in Drogheda at the gates of his distillery, as did his children and grandchildren who were born in the town.

Author, historian and journalist Des Grant takes on the character and persona of John Jameson and leads guests through the streets of the town and tells the fascinating story of how he (John Jameson) built a world empire from the Boyneside town while also having a distillery in Dublin.

Please note: this tour is strictly over 18 only.

Please note: This is a leisurely and laid-back walking tour, easy underfoot and presented in a very relaxed atmosphere.
