    Irish Whiskey Museum
    Stop: 60 minutes -
    Make your way to the Irish Whiskey Museum to meet your guide and begin your 1-hour whiskey experience. Located in the heart of Dublin’s city center beside the famous Trinity College, the museum can be easily reached by bus, Luas and DART lines. Choose a tour time that suits you, and then set off on an enlightening journey through the history of Irish whiskey. Affectionately called 'uisce beatha' (Gaelic for 'water of life'), the Irish have been distilling the spirit for centuries. In the 19th century, whiskey was the drink of choice in Ireland and across many parts of the world, but the Irish Potato Famine, Prohibition and various wars all contributed to the drink’s demise. As you make your way through the museum, trace the rise, fall and recent resurgence of Irish whiskey, and listen to your guide share stories about whiskey through the ages and examine displays of rare whiskey memorabilia. End your experience with a whiskey tasting. Take a deep sniff of the powerful spirit, before tasting the smooth tipple. If you’ve chosen to upgrade your experience, you’ll get to sample a premium aged whiskey and take a souvenir home as a memento of your experience. The tour concludes after the tasting, but you may wish to head to the retail area to pick up some whiskey merchandise or visit the bar, where you can sample more of the golden elixir in a range of whiskey-based cocktails (own expense).

Better than the distilleries tours..Here they don't pitch any specific brand and you get the Real History and Story of Irish whiskey. The tasting was a learning experience. Janet was a perfect guide, more like a "personal drinking trainer". Highly recommend. JANET gets 5 stars.

Awesome tour of the history of irish whiskey. Janet was a great guide. Very knowledgeable. You'll get to taste 4 irish whiskeys to which the guide explains a little of the history and how the taste is achieved. Eat something before you visit.

The tour with Janet was great fun and was perfect for somebody like me who is just a beginner in whiskey enjoyment. In addition to finding my taste, I was inspired to make a whiskey based Christmas cake, which Janet said her mom makes for the holidays.

What an interesting & informative tour! Ross did a great balancing humor & facts on the tour. Be sure to upgrade to the premium tour - it’s worth the few extra euro. Highly recommend!
