The Basics

Access to the Irish Whiskey Museum is by guided tour only. Join a 1-hour guided tour to find out more about Irish whiskey production, the social importance of the spirit, and its rise, fall, and resurgence in Ireland and beyond. Tours conclude with an Irish whiskey tasting session. Upgrade to a premium tour to enjoy an additional sample of a premium aged whiskey as well as a take-home souvenir.

For an extra treat, opt for a whiskey and brunch experience, which combines a guided tour and tasting with a typical Irish brunch at the on-site Cafe Bar. Whiskey connoisseurs might want to opt for a whiskey blending experience, which includes a guided tour, a tasting of four Irish whiskies, and the opportunity to blend and take home their own 1-ounce (30-ml) bottle of whiskey.

Dublin: Irish Rock and Roll Music & Whiskey Tour
It was cool to learn about more Irish musicians that we didn't already know about. We were also given lots of city history that we weren't expecting. That helped our tour to be well rounded!! Loved it! Such a kind and helpful guide as well!!

It was a good tour except for not having enough places to sit while tour guy talked about history. The first 2 rooms we went into did not have enough seating or the tour was too big for what you can accommodate...for older people it's tough standing for so long... but the info we received and the tasting where fun..

Great! -- primarily because of the tour host, Janet.

Janet, the tour host was exceptionally knowledgeable and very good -- deserves a 5 star rating. However, at the tasting table, there were only 3 tasters instead of tasters for all the 4 styles. There was no complementary glass. And above all, when the 5 pm tour ended, the in-house bar had closed, which was a bit of a dampener -- hence, the overall 4 star rating. Suggestion: There should also be a small explanatory brochure/flier given to the guests, as a keepsake, explaining the different types/'styles' of whiskeys and their origin or evolution -- would be a good informative and educational memoir, from the Irish Whiskey Museum!

One of our favorites in the entire trip! We had done a brewery and a distillery, but this wasn't that- this was more of a cultural history of Irish Whiskey, what sets it apart, how it inspired so much commerce, stories, how it played in every day life of the Irish and the rest of the world. Our guide, Andrew, was absolutely hilarious and knew so much on the topic I'm a Somm, I know A LOT, he actually taught me a few thing. We laughed, we learned, we had fun and we drank at the end- both as part of the tour and in the whiskey bar after to try more rare drams you can't get in the States. Could have spent more time there, just trying their flights and learning tips from EVERYONE who worked there!
