This was an excellent whiskey tour that combined five great whiskeys, expert sommelier advice, and insightful historical knowledge of Ireland. We've done other whiskey tours, and those usually focused on the mechanics of whiskey making, like the distillation and fermentation processes. This was far more fun. James is a whiskey expert who can easily switch from discussing whiskey viscosity to the trends in the 1830s that prompted new distillation techniques. We learned a lot about Ireland's love affair with whiskey over the past several centuries, all while sipping on a great selection (green spot was my fave) and snacking on cheese and chocolate. A great way to spend the afternoon in Dublin.

Thanks for the great review. We are glad you found the tour fun and interesting. We designed the tour to be the best of both worlds. James is our newest guide and is a great addition to our already great whiskey team. Green spot is a firm favourite on the tour and hopefully you can source some back home. sláinte

Thanks

The Dublin Whiskey Tour comes highly recommended! I found them on Trip Advisor - thought it would be fun to try something special our first trip to Ireland. Eoin was an amazing host, provided great details and interesting history surrounding the various Irish Whiskeys. It was a small intimate group who attended making the feel of the tour that much more unique. I would recommend this experience to anyone who has a love of Whiskey and meeting wonderful people while abroad! Cheers and Sláinte from Canada!!

Thanks for a really great review. Eoin is a great guide who loves Irish whiskey and sharing his vast knowledge. Our group sizes are always kept to a decent size, so no one gets lost in a big crowd. We hope you get to try more of our lovely whiskey back home.

Thanks

I had tasted some Irish whiskies before this tour, but my experiences limited to offering that was available over 10 years ago. Since then there are a lot more Irish distilleries and this tour was a great help in getting to know some of the newcomers.

For some reason I was the only guest for the tour, and this made the experience even more special, as we had really great conversations and I learned a lot.

I will probably take this tour also next time I am in Dublin. Maybe the whiskies will be different... and if not, it doesn't matter.

My wife and I had a wonderful time. We sampled five whiskeys, each one quite distinct from the others. Justine, the tour leader, is a lively lady who can tell you every thing about how whiskey is made, what gives each whiskey its own unique flavor and how best to enjoy them. If you have ever wondered about the difference between single-malt, single-pot and single-grain, this tour will provide illumination along with a warm glow.

My partner and I visited Dublin for his birthday, and as whiskey lovers we booked this tour. It was absolutely fantastic. The tour is excellent value for money, you're provided with a great selection of whiskeys to try, and our tour guide, Justine, was fantastic - obviously very knowledgable and passionate. You get to visit a fab selection of pubs and there is some interesting history thrown in too. Highly recommended, even if you're not a particular lover of whiskey! Thank you for a great evening!
