A friend of mine and I did not know what we were heading into and boy did we get caught off guard. So, we're arriving Dublin by air, jumps on the airport bus and head straight down to the city. We check in to our hotel and walks down to Dingle Whiskey Bar expecting to be greeted by a curious group of people joining the same tour as us. But oh no.. this was a special tour only for the two of us and the guide was full of city knowledge. Not only did he tell us stories about the architecture, history and what not. He did also know his stuff about whiskeys. How often do you get a private whiskey tasting in bars which haven't opened yet? So closed tasting where you can privately focus on the pure gold served by the bartender.

We had such a good time that the guide actually joined us for a beer at the final destination before he was to pick up a new group of explorers. Don't miss this opportunity. You wont regret it.

I was on one of the first tours, but you'd never know they were just starting up. The choice of whiskeys and of pubs is so good that you'd think they had spent years getting it just right. It's obvious that the organisers are bringing a lot of previous whiskey knowledge and experience to bear.
I particularly appreciated that they gave us plenty of time to savour the different whiskeys and to pick out for ourselves the different flavours and other qualities of each one that the excellent guide was pointing out to us. It was important that they did give us enough time - the good whiskeys would have been wasted if we had to drink them down one after another. This way, we didn't only get a whiskey lesson, but we had time to actually enjoy the drinks as well.
Going from renowned whiskey pub to pub also added to the enjoyment. I had been a bit afraid that this might be too much like a pub-crawl, but they judged it just right, keeping the number of pubs few enough to avoid having to move too often. It was great, of course, that all the pubs were so close together.
All in all, I thoroughly recommend this to whiskey enthusiasts or to anybody who wants a fun evening. Just remember, if you're travelling by car, that you won't be able to drive again that day!

I went along to the tour with my friend and it was one of the best tours we have been on in Dublin. The three bars are so quaint and it's the perfect way to spend a weekend afternoon with your friends or your loved ones. The guide Eoin was exceptional and really made the whole experience worthwhile with his knowledge of both the bars and the whiskeys. If you're a lover not only whiskey, but history too, you'll love this tour. You are guaranteed to come out at the end with a whole new appreciation for whiskey and how it's made. Amazing tour.

Me and my friends had a fantastic time on the tour, i couldn't recommend it highly enough. Eoin our guide gave us the history of the charming bars we visited and the history of each of the whiskey companies from the whiskeys we sampled, his knowledge on the subject was imperative and I came out of the tour an even bigger whiskey lover.
