  • LOVED this experience. This was part of a birthday trip. I am a whiskey fan so this is where I was brought. Our guide was super knowledgeable and shared about the history of whiskey. I loved that the focus wasn’t on one brand. Instead, it was about the history of whiskey within the country. Toward the end of the tour, we were able to sample a few whiskeys. I got to try whiskey I had not had before and ended up purchasing some at the airport (Powers is pretty good). Would highly recommend this experience if you’re ever in Dublin!!
  • Wow! what a fantastic place! I thought I knew something about whiskey. Turns out I'm a newbie like a kiddo wet behind ears. The guide we had - was marvellous! Very quick speaking but clear and strong Irish accent:) In the end I surely know how to distinguish pot still from column still and single grain from single malt. The blending service could be based on a larger doses of "the product" ;) I think every opinion would in such case give 5 out of 5!
