Visitor Centre


Located in the heart of the Cooley peninsula, one of the most beautiful places in Ireland, Martin's bar is very popular with locals and tourists alike. Martin's is located on the main Dundalk to Carlingford road, just one hundred meters from the Cooley Distillery.

One of the main attractions at Martin's is the Cooley Whiskey Visitor's centre.


The Cooley Distillery Whiskey bar is a bar dedicated to the award winning Cooley Whiskey range. The bar, built in 2011, is often visited by people who wish to learn about Cooley Whiskey.

We hold Cooley Whiskey tours and tasting events regularly on a pre-booking basis. Our Visitor's centre can cater for people who wish to learn about the distillation process used by Cooley distillery and the ancient art of barrel coopering. You are first brought into our function room where you will be seated and receive a demonstration on the whiskey making process. You will then be brought into the main bar for a whiskey tasting where you will be able to get a better understanding on what you learned during the demonstaration.

We can host tours for groups of 6 up to 100 and we can provide some light refreshments at affordable prices.

We stock and sell a variety of Cooley Whiskey products, including Greenore, Tyrconnell, Connemara and Kilbeggan whiskeys.
