Full Description

Ballykilcavan Farm, just outside Stradbally, has been the home of the Walsh family for 13 generations since 1639.  The current owners have opened a new craft brewery in a 230 year old stone grain store, where all the barely used to make the beers is grown on the farm.  The first tours of the historic farmyard and brewery will take place in summer 2019.  Scheduled tours are available at weekends, and the brewery is also open by appointment for groups during the week.  See www.ballykilcavan.com/tours.html for more details.

The farm will also host a series of events over the summer, including a 4 course long table banquet on June 21st.  This will feature food and drink from across Co. Laois, cooked by chef Martin Hayes from Bloom Restaurant in Portlaoise.  There will be a walk through the mature native woodlands as part of the Laois Walks Festival in July and a guided tour and wild plant walk on Easter Monday, April 22nd.  Details on the website (ballykilcavan.com) or Facebook page (facebook.com/ballykilcavan).
