By land (from Halifax)

Take Hwy 103 – the main route from Halifax (or from Bridgewater and points west) – to Exit 11 and head south on Hwy 324 until it ends. Turn left and drive through town on Lincoln Street. The first stop sign is King Street. Keep going for several more blocks. The second stop sign is Kempt Street. Turn right. Ironworks is one block down on the left-hand corner, just before you fall into the ocean (not recommended).

By sea (from the world)

On entering Lunenburg harbour, anchor anywhere to the west of the main inbound channel, south of the line joining the lighted buoys. Row over to the Railroad Wharf. Walk up the hill past the Dory Shop to Montague Street. Turn right and you’ll see Ironworks Distillery on the next corner.
