Whiskey Tasting Tour of Dublin

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Soak up the local flavor during a guided whiskey tour of Ireland's capital city. Sample 5 exquisite whiskeys, savoring smooth flavors that call to mind clear mountain streams and stately oak forests.

Settle into a private booth at the Dingle Whiskey Bar and start your whiskey experience with a blended whiskey. Note the warm feeling the intermingling flavors produce, and then chat with your guide about Ireland's tradition of whiskey distilling. After this warm introduction, you will sample a whiskey that is inspired by Irish writers like Johnathan Swift and Oscar Wilde.

When you are fully relaxed it is time to visit your next whiskey bar - Bowes Lounge. Enjoy a whiskey in the private snug or with some Dublin locals, as you hear tales of whiskey smuggling and whiskey fires.

Then on to your last whiskey bar. Sitting in The Palace Bar drinking whiskey bottled for this bar you will listen to your guide tell you about Dublin whiskey old and new before heading out to explore Dublin city.
  • Learn the history of Irish whiskey as you sample six different types
  • Maximize time spent in Dublin with no worries about picking the right bar
  • Visit historic watering holes including The Palace Bar
  • Guide offers tasting notes and tips on tasting technique
What to Expect
Meet your guide in Dublin city center at Dingle Whiskey Bar where you kick things off with two samples of Irish whiskey. Learn about the history of whiskey and distilleries in Dublin and across Ireland from your guide. The tour continues at a historic pub, Bowes Lounge, to try two more quality whiskeys. Your guide shares the ins-and-outs of whiskey tasting. The tour finishes at the Palace Bar, home to Dublin’s original whiskey society, located in Temple Bar, the cultural quarter of Dublin. Sample two final premium whiskeys, selected by your guide. After the tour, use your central location to explore Dublin independently.

Our tour was totally spoken, but the tour guide spoke slowly, repeating and explaining when necessary, and giving every plenty of time to ask questions. This was a great, well rounded overview of Irish whiskey!
