Having gone to college in Waco my wife and I both develop d a love for Dr Pepper and its history. It was really cool for us to come to see where Dublin Dr Pepper used to be bottled. Sadly, Dr Pepper merged with Snapple and decided to stop the Dublin brand from making what IMO is a superior product.... More

Great soda shop. Great bottling plant tour. Great museum. Great history about the begining of Dr. Pepper bottling. Great samples. Great sodas made with Imperial pure sugar. Don't forget to take home a case or two of your favorite sodas. Be sure to drink a bottle of Dublin Original soda.

This isn't worth the trip to Dublin for its own sake. But its a great place to stop if you are on the way somewhere. Stopped here on our way through town. Always loved the Dublin Dr. Pepper with Cane Sugar instead of Corn Syrup. I was sad to hear about their problems with the Dr. Pepper Company. They are... More

Husband and I took a day trip here from Plano and had the best time! The tour is only $5 and so worth it! You get to bottle your own soda and see the plant where they used to bottle soda. Lots of interesting history and tons of memorabilia! We spent about 2 hours here. You do get to sample... More

Decided to take a drive from Fort Worth to Dublin to visit the Dublin Bottling Works. Had a very wonderful day. The staff at the soda fountain were very friendly and offered us samples of any of the drinks they make there. The tour was very interesting and informative on the bottling industry and Dr. Pepper. We decided to have... More

Great piece of history. A lot of vintage soda items to see as well as the bottling process. There are several museums to visit and You must have a soda or float at Old Doc's Soda Shop. I've been several times and it's like stepping back in time. Cute town square for additional shopping.

It's a small but very interesting tour. It kept the kids (6&2) interested and that is no small accomplishment. Be sure to try the samples! It's a little off the beaten path but it is worth the side trip. Dublin itself is a great little town.

This is the place that put Dublin on the map for years. It was the only place that you could still get Dr Pepper made with real sugar. The Snapple company closed them down but now they make some drinks that will make Dr Pepper drinkers want to dump it. Great place to visit, and if you are military ask... More

Love the tour through the old bottling facility. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and friendly. He also encouraged us to try as many samples of soda as we wanted. There were also 3 rooms full of Dr Pepper vintage decor, ads, memorabilia, etc. Also, after the tour you can go across the street to the museum for free which... More

We loved everything about it. The soda shop, the tour, the musuem. It was very interesting and really cool. Between the tour and grabbing a bite to eat you can easily spend 2 to 3 hours here!
