Pearse Lyons Distillery at St. James is a new chapter for The Liberties, Dublin. Family history, a personal passion for brewing and distilling, and an entrepreneurial spirit has inspired the restoration of St. James’ Church and the continuing renaissance of distilling in The Liberties. Founded by Pearse and Deirdre Lyons, Pearse Lyons Distillery at St. James is history in the remaking.
The former church has been beautifully re-purposed as a boutique distillery and showcase for the over 800 years of local history. Visitors can enjoy a tour and tasting, admire the stunning new Liberties Lantern, the unique glass spire of the building and explore the atmospheric graveyard to the rear, thought to contain over 100,000 burials.
