Project Details

Walsh’s Whiskey Distillery located in Royal Oak, Carlow is one of the largest independent distilleries in Ireland.

The Building includes the Still House, Mash House, Mill Room and the Coffey Still Tower (22m high). The Ancillary Wing located at the rear houses the Boiler Room, Cask Filling and Workshop. Located at the front of the building are the offices, shop and welfare facilities.

One of the main features of the building is the 22m high Coffey Still Tower. To complete the tower cap on time we prefabricated the steel structure, copper cladding and louvres on the ground and lifted the 6.6m diameter, 6m high structure in two parts to fit it in one day
