Cider was first made at Dowd’s Lane, the home of Irish cider back in 1935, using apples from the local orchard.
For over 200 years, Ireland’s finest ale, porter and cider poured out of a little laneway in Clonmel. What started in 1798 as Thomas Murphy’s brewery became William Magners cidery in 1932. Today it’s home to the Dowd’s Lane Brewing Co. A place where beer and cider made by those, and for those, with a taste for a good sup comes from.
After testing and tasting two centuries’ worth of recipes, we have faithfully revived our favourites: Big Vat Cider, 12 O’Clock Mass IPA and Doornail Red Ale.
