Adeptus sets out the beginnings of ICB's Lost Breweries Project, as initiated by Joeby in this thread.

The article includes an impressive interactive map showing just how prevalent brewing once was in this country.

Have a browse and start gathering your corrections and additions, because the next phase will be up to you.

Some sterling work done there. For my part I think I might take a look into the old Kinsealy brewery that was mentioned.

Great resource guys, well done. Just thinking - letters to local press might be a good way to get some extra info.

Thanks. This is only scratching the surface really, but I hope the map will form an index of sorts to provide stubs to help kick off deeper research. There are so many marked on the maps of the first half of the 19th C. -- and the majority most likely have little remaining on record -- that it'll be a big job to find out details on all of those found so far. That's why it's important to open this out and get you guys pulling in stuff where possible.

Of course the next real challenge is getting this Wiki working the way we want it :D

The amount of information so far is great and it looks like its going to be a very interesting on-going project.

I have two more breweries for you Adeptus. Both are in Birr, I'll email you the locations in google earth kml files.

Bravo on this project! It is certainly very interesting.
Just imagine being able to walk into a pub with a really long bar that had ale from each of these long lost breweries on tap. Now that would be some beer fest!

".....which was Beamish and Crawford, which was set up in 1792. The principal other breweries of the time included Lanes Southgate Brewery (est. 1758), the site of the redeveloped Grand Parade City Carpark; St. Finbarre’s Brewery (est. 1805) on Fitton Street (later Sharman Crawford Street); River Lee Porter Brewery (est. 1796) on Prospect Row (site of present day Lee Maltings) and Cashman’s Brewery at Crosses Green. All were located by the river for easy accessibility for transport and for a water supply. Associated with these brewing establishments were various storehouses and malt drying houses, which in many established cases were distributed outside the bounds of the brewery in other parts of the city."

Dunno if it helps , but it seems to have some slight differences from what's up on beermapping at the mo.

Anyone know about the brewery in Kells,Co.Meath. It's still standing, Oliver Ushers Auction rooms are in it now,you can still kinda make out the workings of it. He has a poster in the office with a bit of history and labels.

From memory, it ran during the 1920/30/40s ? and was Irelands first lager brewery. The lager was called Regal,as in lager backwards !

There was actually a short lived lager brewery in Dublin in around 1899 I believe

The Dartry Brewery (est. 1891) was Ireland's first lager brewery.

It was called the Regal Lager Brewery. It opened in 1937 and shows up as being in trouble in stock market reports in 1949.

In January 1952 it was put up for sale, and presumably Guinness bought it. It closed in 1954.
