About
Escape the hustle and bustle of Dublin City for one day as we take you on a private whiskey adventure to the midlands of Ireland, to the real Irish countryside. As you cruise through rural Ireland, enjoy lively conversation with your Whiskey Specialist Host before arriving at Kilbeggan Distillery, one of Ireland’s oldest distilleries which is still producing their world famous Kilbeggan whiskey. We stop in a great little town after our tour and tasting at Kilbeggan called Athlone, home to Ireland's oldest pub - Sean's. They love whiskey so much at Sean's that they have 2 of their own brands! We'll try them after you've had a bit of free time in Athlone to explore / grab some lunch. Then onto Tullamore Distillery for tour of the working distillery and tasting. We'll have you back in Dublin in the early evening.

What a splendid way to spend a day. Sit and relax in a car while looking at the fantastic scenery of Ireland with a friendly and perfect guide, John, who knew so much and told us so many interesting things. When arriving at the distilleries John checked us in. Everything was prepared for, we didn’t have to do anything.. more than do the tours and taste whiskey:)
Kilbeggan, the nice little town Athlone where you could have some lunch before visiting Sean’s bar (the oldest bar, at least in Ireland) with whiskey tasting as well and finally Tullamore with a master class.
At first I thought the price was quite high but looking at what we got it was worth every penny!
