  • We stopped to pay a visit to this small but great museum full of history. Very interesting the Guide view where you trace the whole history of whisky with nice staff and very prepared. Much appreciated also the final tasting.

  • We did the brunch tour right at 10am and had a great time. The tour was informative without being information overload. Our guide was knowledgeable and charismatic. The brunch afterward consisted of smoked salmon and brown bread with apricot marmalade. It seems very light, but ends up being pretty filling. We got to try three less common whiskeys of Ireland which is nice considering other tours in the area will give you a taste of the famous brands. I would definitely go back if I brought new friends to the city.
  • Hannah!!!!!!! She was the bartender there and made my experience there absolutely just wonderful. Such a beautiful spirit, who so helpful to everyone and pretty funny too. And I cant forget to mention what a talented bartender she is! She made every drink to perfection. THANKS FOR EVERYTHING HANNAH 🙌🏽❤😂
  • Very informative, great tips on whiskey tasting. Definitely worth the time. We did the classic tour, which meant we tasted 3 whiskeys instead of 4, which was fine. The history is fascinating, and the guide was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
  • Whether you're just visiting or you've been in Dublin for a while, the Whiskey Museum is worth your time. The tours are both interesting and interactive, and prices are not extortionate. Look at it this way; the premium tour will cost you a bit over 20 euro, and you get 4 tastings of whiskey at the end of it. Go to any pub, and those same whiskeys will cost you the same or more, but you'll have missed the tour and the information it provides. Dublin has plenty of tourist traps, but this is not one of them.
  • Perfect tour. Wonderful speaker, a lot of historical information. Very nice. The whiskey tasting was perfect. We had a lot of fun during the tour. This is a must see in Dublin.
