Great way to see Athlone and get educated on whiskey
So many little bits of interesting history are connected with Athlone Ireland and whiskey and Deirdre is the best tour guide you could wish for. Great few hours had by 7 lads who didn’t really know Athlone before but left back for Dublin wiser about both Athlone and whiskey. Highly recommended

Huge thank you to the lovely Deirdre of Athlone Whiskey Walking Tour for a really fun & interesting afternoon last Feburary.
Athlone really is steeped in loads of interesting history & facts that I'd never heard of until I did this tour. Fascinating stories & historical buildings right on our doorstep, Plus the whiskey & chocolate tasting was an added bonus!! I Would highly recommend this tour to locals & visitors alike!

Great afternoon with Athlone Whiskey Tour
Jul 2019 • Couples
We recently spent an amazing afternoon of history, whiskey and craic with Deirdre from Athlone Whiskey Tours. As a native Athlone man I wasn’t expecting to learn so much, but I was wrong! This tour is perfect for locals and tourists alike. Deirdre has premium whiskeys for tasting and has an in-depth knowledge of all things whiskey around the midlands. Cannot recommend the tour enough!
