About
Irish whiskey is fast becoming one of the most popular spirits across the World. The Irish Whiskey Museum, based in the heart of Dublin City in a historic building on Grafton Street, tells the complete and unbiased history of Irish whiskey and its importance in Ireland’s turbulent past. The Irish Whiskey Museum is independent of all whiskey distilleries, offering its visitors the opportunity to taste and experience a huge selection of Irish Whiskey. Whether it’s Single Grain, Malt, Pot Still or a Blended Whiskey, the Museum’s whiskey experts will always be able to help you find the perfect whiskey to suit your palate. Tours take place from 10am-6pm every day, while visitors can experience a variety of live traditional music, storytelling and events every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening until 10.30pm.

Good background to the art of Irish whisky distilling
Oct 2020
We visited the museum in May 2019 pre-COVID; sorry for the delay in review.

We decided to visit the museum instead of going to one of the distilleries because we thought we'd get to taste more varieties of whisky. That is certainly the case but I'm not sure if you are provided more information about the methods? At any rate, it is an interesting tour, part serious and part funny, and you do get to taste several whiskies that give you an idea of the results of different types of distilling and storage. You end up in the bar and can order flights which help you decide which whisky is your favourite. And of course you can buy bottles of whisky of various sizes. Friends bought small bottles for relatives back home.

If you want more information, I suggest a tour of Jamison's but for a broad explanation of the industry and some diversity in tasting, try the Irish Whisky Museum.

We took the simple tour and it was excellent. I believe they do different types of tour including a more premium tour,Malmö, worth noting that they do have live music on some evenings.

First disappointment in Dublin
Feb 2020
First of all, it’s not a museum. I would call it a lecture room combined with a whiskey tasting. I learned a few interesting things about Irish whiskey. The problem is I could read this online and save time. I emphasize time, not money because time is always the most precious during quick trips and you don’t want to waste it on such attractions. Don’t get me wrong, the people who work there try really hard to entertain visitors but there’s not much to see and do. Even the best tour guide could not save this place. However, I’m not surprised that this place has received such high notes. People usually do not require too much if the tour guide is funny and they can buy a souvenir with the museum logo at the end of their stay. Visit this place only if you are very bored.

Learn More about the History of Whiskey
Jan 2020
Knowledgeable staff gives you a great overview of the history of whiskey in Ireland, as well as famous Irish distilleries. The tastings, too, give you an understanding of the subtle differences between them.

Fionn, who had the tour with us, was just excellent! He told us the story about whiskey with great knowledge and enthusiasm! If you want to learn or just taste this is the place!

Visited the museum with friends visiting Ireland from Luxembourg. I was a bit sceptical but happy to go to humour my visitors but really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it. Our guide Andrew was excellent. 5 stars for sure!

Awesome historical stop and/or start to a night out in Dublin!
Sep 2019
The whiskeys were fantastic and the employees were swell! Chaniece (our tour guide) was knowledgeable and well-rehearsed but personable.

The venue is also very aesthetically pleasing, and the gift shop had a swell selection of cute little whiskey bottles.

I stand by all of this so much that this is actually more than a year after my visit, and I still felt I should finally write a positive review when I found the business card just now while cleaning :)
