I'm not a whiskey expert by any means, so it was just a lot of fun getting to mix and match my own whiskey! My fiancé and I had just gotten engaged the day before we went on this... read more

We found this tour to be gimmicky and somewhat of a tourist trap. The whiskeys were good, but the guide was inexperienced and the videos/presentations were pretty lame. This might be a good place to visit if you are brand new to whiskey, but I would recommend visiting a distillery instead.

Visit day - March 16 This was a great experience and probably one of the best things to do in Dublin. We had a tour guide and a whiskey tasting guide...both were extremely charming and engaging (also attractive....whyyyyyyy). The tour takes about an hour and the building itself is a combination of modern technology with a historical feel. All the... More

What can I say well worth the money. I would advise going for the premium tour for just 3 euro extra. Genuine interesting history of Irish whiskey delivered enthusiastically by James! Loved every minute of it

Was searching for a place to hide from the rain and jumped in! Best decision ever... Even though I am now a whiskey fan, don't drink it at all, the time there was just perfect! Learned a lot about whiskey, Irish culture. The guy was just soooo much fun! Don't remember the name, but regardless - it was just perfect!... More

Is something very historical, funny, entertaining and the girls they really easy to follow, the museum is REALLY SMALL but that is not the point is to Know more and I think they nail it. However they don’t have a proper store of Wisky I think they need to start selling what they give you on the taste. Also with... More

Aaron was great and funny on the tour. The tour is an hour long and depending on what you've paid for you get 3-4 whiskey tastings at the end. I highly enjoyed learning the history and makings of whiskey. Definitely a must see!
