Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    We meet at the very centrally located James Fox Cigar & Whiskey Store on Grafton St.

    Our first port of call is the The Irish Whiskey Museum, the tour is just fantastic and is such a fitting introduction to the story we plan on telling you! We finish in the bar for sampling of 3 well-known Irish Whiskeys 

    We board our transport and take you the original home of Jameson Whiskey. We arrange the very special Maturation House Cask Draw Experience at Jameson Distillery Bow St. for you which includes tasting of a rare 14-year-old Jameson.

    Next we bring you to the Liberties neighbourhood of Dublin so that you can experience a fully working distillery. There are 3 new distilleries in the Liberties and one more soon to open. We'll bring you for a visit to one of these with a tasting of the goods included.

    Finally, we take you back to the downtown area and we finish at the Celtic Whiskey Shop for tastings with one of the store's expert whiskey ambassadors - 2 premium whiskeys and an Irish cream liqueur included.

    The tour finishes at 5:30pm approx and we leave you at the Celtic Whiskey Store to browse through the vast stocks of whiskey - you might want to pick up a bottle of the whiskey you enjoyed most over the afternoon! 

    During the afternoon, you will enjoy a panoramic city tour of Dublin as we transfer from stop to stop in luxury executive coach with commentary on board from your whiskey expert Host (bottled water on board)

    John gave us a nice whiskey tasting in the hotel (lac of time to go out). He had a lot of material to demonstrate how whiskey is created and off course we had some tasting. John is a PRO ! He tasks the necessary time to explain with a touch of humor. Nice job John !
