About
A full day, fully guided whiskey trail through Ireland’s Ancient East, departing from and returning to Dublin. We visit three new Irish distilleries in Counties Wicklow, Carlow and Kilkenny enjoying lots of essential Irish sightseeing along the way. The distilleries we visit are all unique, and the people behind them tell a great story! You travel in executive transport and enjoy lively conversation with your Whiskey Specialist Host who will provide guided commentary throughout. Free time in Kilkenny - the most prominent medieval city in Ireland before taking an evening transfer by road direct to Dublin. Most importantly, you'll try a nice range of new Irish whiskeys and some Irish gin, vodka and poitin!

A gracious and informed host. Couldn't have been better! John is well-connected, and knows the area and the people. We visited an interesting mix of old and new distilleries. He was an informative and knowledgeable host. Highly recommended.
