The Barrel Yard, Smithwick’s Experience’s new outdoor space, is the location of the former brewery yard where historically, large wooden barrels were repaired and stored ready to be filled with Smithwick’s ale for distribution to pubs around Ireland. In years gone by, this space would have been a hive of activity, remembered fondly by many of the old brewery workers and their families who remain in Kilkenny to this day. The Barrel Yard is the ideal space for visitors and tour groups alike to relax before and after their visit and for friends and family to gather and enjoy Smithwick’s famous red ale in the heart of the medieval city.
