Follow a whiskey connoisseur and learn the drink’s history while visiting three notable bars. Your tour concludes at a bar that was the home of Dublin’s original whiskey society.

What to Expect

Meet your guide in Dublin city center at Dingle Whiskey Bar where you kick things off with two samples of Irish whiskey. Learn about the history of whiskey and distilleries in Dublin and across Ireland from your guide.

The tour continues at a historic pub, Bowes Lounge, to try two more quality whiskeys. Your guide shares the ins-and-outs of whiskey tasting.
