  • First of all, it’s not a museum. I would call it a lecture room combined with a whiskey tasting. I learned a few interesting things about Irish whiskey. The problem is I could read this online and...  more »
  • Knowledgeable staff gives you a great overview of the history of whiskey in Ireland, as well as famous Irish distilleries. The tastings, too, give you an understanding of the subtle differences...  more »
  • Our tour guide was a theatrical gem, and the whole experience was fantastic. Way beeter than going to a single distillery and hearing a one-sided view. Delicious tasting too!  more »

  • I'm not a whiskey drinker..... bad bought of toilet hugging in high school has caused the smell to almost instantly trigger my gag reflex. I went for my sister. She loved it, felt the amount of tasting was worth the money and purchased several bottles afterward. I however, thoroughly enjoyed the history lesson and knowledge gained. A great experience for both drinkers and non whiskey lovers
  • I strongly recommend you check your ability fluent understanding Irish accent before you join it. I had no problem in taking other course in London. But it was quite hard time for me to understand Tony's accent in whole time. But the other people seemed to understand his explanation. If I had known Irish changes the 'i' sound to 'o' sound before taking the course, it would have been better. For example... ois sound means ice.
  • The tour was interesting and fun. The tour guide, I believe his name was Ross, was amazing and made the whole experience fun and interactive. Not to mention the whisky was really good. If you have a trip planned for Dublin then I would definitely recommend it.
  • Enjoyed the experience. Tony is an excellent guide! He is both funny and well informed. Provided a thorough history of Irish whiskey. The experience was an education and the whiskey tasting was well paced. Highly recommended when you are in Dublin.
  • Tony was our tour guide. He did a fantastic job in educating about the history of all whiskey... of course with the focus on Irish Whiskey. The tasting was great, and as an added benefit this is an independently owned tour so it feels nice supporting them. Lastly, they have a BRUNCH TOUR. Unfortunately I went around 5pm, but the tour with Irish Irish Breakfast to follow sounds fabulous.
