Irish Whiskey Museum, Dublin

Irish Whiskey Museum, Dublin (must see)

Based in a historic building on Grafton Street, opposite the main entrance of Trinity College, the Irish Whiskey Museum is a great combination of Ireland’s best traits – history and booze. Since opening in November 2014, it has been a firm favorite with tourists, allowing visitors to taste some of its huge selection of whiskeys – single grain, malt, pot still or blended, whilst experiencing a variety of live traditional music, storytelling and more.

Those eager to listen, learn and laugh, will certainly do so on the interactive guided tours the museum runs, exploring the four rooms themed to different periods in Irish history. By the end of the tour visitors are likely to become true whiskey connoisseurs.

Those willing to treat themselves to the Whiskey Blending Experience (1 hour 30 minutes), will get a full tour and four whiskeys to taste, and take home a miniature Irish Whiskey Museum bottle with a sample of their very own whiskey blend. The Whiskey and Brunch Experience (1 hour 30 minutes, Saturdays & Sundays) includes the full tour, three whiskeys to taste and an Irish brunch. Also, with the VIP package, one can get an exclusive fourth whiskey and a unique shot class to take home.

Why You Should Visit:
Being independent from all whiskey distilleries in the country, the museum tells the detailed and unbiased history of this famous spirit.

Tip:
You don't have to drink on the tours, as non-drink tickets are available; children are welcome. Similarly, you don't have to do a tour to taste whiskeys either – simply inquire at the bar, and the staff will assist with a "Whiskey Flight" tasting. Just as the dedicated whiskey retail store, the in-house bar provides a huge selection of Irish whiskeys to choose from, plus their signature Irish Coffee and whiskey cocktails.

Tours are run every day from 10:00 to 18:00. Private tours are available after 18:00. Free audio guides are offered in Spanish, Italian, French, German and Mandarin. Other events take place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday until 22:30.
