Oileán Éadaigh West Mayo Brewery – Announcement


It is with some sadness that we are announcing today that we have taken the decision to cease operations at Oileán Éadaigh West Mayo Brewery entirely later this year, after 6 years of producing craft beers.  

There are no major issues or problems that have led to our decision, more that we both have a number of other commitments and ambitions to pursue and it was therefore no longer possible to give the proper time needed to the brewery business. So though the business was still successful, we decided to close it and quit whilst we were ahead, and being a small enterprise on the family farm, we decided to close rather than hand the business over to others.

Our beers will be on sale still through the summer on draught at a number of pubs in Westport (and one in Newport) and our bottles will still be available as well, so we hope you continue to enjoy your pints during that time! Caroline will be taking over the operations from May whilst Iain takes up a new distillery role, and you can get in touch with the usual number or email us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Some brewery merchandise is still available – Hoodies. T-Shirts, Steins and Glasses – and can be obtained at sales prices if anyone would like any in the coming months. Again, please contact using the usual phone number or via email. Also, we will be removing our social media presence in a couple of weeks.

Running your own business of course has many challenges, but running the microbrewery for the last 6 years has been a very rewarding experience and especially in terms of working with our customers, and supplying our product to craft beer enthusiasts and indeed anyone that just likes a nice beer and a bit more choice!

So as we say, some sadness, but it is the right time for us to move on and we take a great deal of pride in our achievements to date – in the quality and variety of different beers our small brewery has produced and in making the McKennas’ Best in Ireland guide for the last 5 years running!

Finally, and most importantly, a big thank you to everyone for your custom and support over the years – it is very much appreciated and we hope you continue to enjoy good craft beers and continue to support good local businesses!

Covey's E.S.P.

coveys webBottled and kegged today in the brewery - our new craft lager Covey's E.S.P. will be available soon - we will let you know where and when!

Covey's is a nod to residents of our local town of Westport, and as there is an increasing trend today for having emotional support pets, we have provided you instead with an Emotional Support Pilsner (ESP) to help you relax and unwind!

Throstle Preacher IPA


Well, the Throstle Preacher IPA is kegged and bottled.


We will let you know when and where it is on sale in the next week or two. An early sample should be available at Sage Restaurant, Westport now or shortly, and of course at the brewery!


You can check out Wordsworth's poem Tables Turned for the name reference....


This is a traditional IPA, so slightly stronger and more hopped than a normal pale ale to survive the trip to India without losing flavour, but not excessively so.



The hop varieties in this IPA lend citrus, blackcurrant and pine notes, including grapefruit and passion fruit aftertaste, giving a refreshing, well balanced, crisp and smooth pint.
