Description

The Irish are renowned for their jolly demeanour and favourite warming drink – whiskey. Sample the spirit that makes the country so merry and uncover the intriguing past of the Irish “water of life”, from its origins and rise to its dramatic decline and current global revival.

The Irish Whiskey Museum is a fascinating gallery that offers interactive, ultra-modern displays showcasing the untold story of the famous age-old drink. Boasting an elite collection of Irish whiskey paraphernalia dating back to the 19th century and friendly, knowledgeable guides, this is the perfect place to delve into the fascinating history of Ireland’s favourite drink.

Step back in time and listen as your entertaining guide traces the interesting origins of Irish whiskey, from the spirit’s modest early years as the preferred libation of the poor, to its rise to the lofty status of most popular spirit in the world, to a period of decline in the late 19th century. Today, Irish whiskey is regaining its legendary status and is now fast growing in popularity.

At the end of your tour, you have the chance to sample a tipple of Irish whiskey, learning about the delicate characteristics and aromas of each different kind.

Don't let the kitschy exterior fool you! This is an honest historical education tour (with a liberal smattering of humor). Our guide, Fionn, had knowledgeable answers for every question. We came away with a deeper understanding of the whiskey-making history and process as well as Irish Whiskey's place in the context of world culture. Don't miss ii if you have even the vaguest interest in whiskeys.

Mark was an excellent guide with a great sense of humour. The information was very informative and interesting and of course, the tasting was fabulous.
