Cider Ireland is a group of like-minded apple growers and cider makers from the island of Ireland.

Cider is made and not brewed and so has far more in common with wine than beer. As artisan cider producers we make cider once a year, so again like wine it has a vintage and thus the cider is different from year to year.

As a group we can promise you that we are owner operators who only make cider from 100% Irish grown apples, that the cider we produce is made from the juice of pressed apples, never, ever from concentrate, and we don’t add colourants.

If you’re looking for Irish cider, artisan cider, organic cider, or even non-alcoholic cider, then you’ve come to the right place.

    I am currently making some Cider at home and I am interested in learning more about the trade and was wondering could you direct me towards college courses or other courses that may help my learning.

    I am looking to make a career out Cider and would appreciate any suggestions you could give me.

    Regards Aidan
