Only a five minute walk from our hotel (International Hotel) tempted us into trying one of the courses offered by this bar. Just kidding! Why wouldn't you want to give this a try while in Ireland? I'd actually emailed them from home before our Ireland trip and they gave a breakdown of the classes they would have available the night... More

So I went in because of the local draft beers they offer but at the end ended up drinking whiskey, very knowledgeable over their whiskey and the beer, enjoyed the service they provided, would recommend to stop by you would enjoy it.

We had a lovely evening sampling new Whisky's, Paudie and Luke couldn't have been more helpful. A nice way to round of a birthday treat. We will be back for a longer visit next time!!

Took a really interesting and informative whiskey class. Did the whiskey and cheese tasting class - didn't realise this combination worked so well together! Julie did the class - I couldn't fault her. Friendly and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend

This place and experience was great. I didn't do any tasting experiences per se, but they are offered. I did find an amazing fish chowder and an interesting bottle I'd never seen. I'd recommend this place fir the ambiance.

We had Cait who was fantastic! She was funny and informative as we went through smells, videos, and of course the tasting. I'm not a big Whiskey person, but my travel buddy fully enjoyed that part and the addition of chocolate made it worth it for me too.

We came too late at night to do an actual whiskey class, but we still got flights and the bartenders were so informative on each whiskey! They still made it a really special experience. We ended up chatting with the bartenders and staying super late to hang out with them! One woman gave me her email for a job contact!... More

My friend and I stumbled across this while looking for indoor activities for a rainy day. I did the Distiller's Apprentice course, while he opted for Master Distiller. Both courses were superb, fun and informative with a lot of attention from our very helpful and friendly host. The place has an incredible range of whiskeys on offer, as well as... More

While my wife went shopping I walked the streets of Killarney and came across IWE. I met Julie who went over their various tastings and food menu. I was blown away by the number of bottles of spirits they have. I talked the group into going for the Masters class and each couple got a beginner and premium tasting so... More
