Great tour!! The Irish Whiskey Museum is in a great location, by Trinity College. Our Do Dublin Hop on Hop off bus stopped on the corner. Paul, our guide was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable and kept us interested. This museum is a must! I purchased the tickets for husband, but I ended up really enjoying the tour. Paul educates you on the history of Irish Whiskey as well as how it is made and packaged as well as the different types and brands of Whiskeys. You also get to do a sampling. I had the classic sampling package which included 3 whiskeys, we upgraded my husband to the premium sampling once we got to the museum, for a few extra Euro which included 4 whiskeys and a free Glencairn glass! Highly recommend this tour!

This was probably my favorite tour in all of Ireland. It is a nice little museum, with great displays. There is an excellent bar inside with a nice selection of whiskeys, so I hit it up and had a few shots before taking the tour. Our tour guide, Cait, definitely knew her stuff. She had a nice sense of humor, and was able to to explain things well for people who are new to whiskey, but also knew a lot to converse with people who are a little more knowledgeable on the subject. She definitely made the tour better. I recommend getting the advanced experience to try more variety of whiskeys at the end of the tour. The museum is also conveniently located across the street from Trinity College, so you can easily knock out two birds with one stone.
