  1. Meeting Point
  2. Tour Overview

    A fully escorted whiskey trail through Dublin City over one afternoon. We take you to three fully operational distilleries, travelling in luxury transport from stop to stop.

    A whiskey expert Host will accompany you for the afternoon, providing you with a city tour, and bringing to the life, the wonderful Liberties neighborhood of Dublin, which once housed 37 working distilleries. 

    We visit three distilleries who have brought whiskey-making back to the Liberties since the last one closed its doors in the 1970s. We organise a unique experience at each distillery, avoiding repetition. While on tour with us, you will sample many really great new Irish whiskeys that you won't have seen before, and you'll sample them at their birthplace which makes it all the more special!

    We finish at the Celtic Whiskey Shop in the downtown area for a tasting and it's here that you can pick up a bottle of the whiskeys that you enjoyed during the the day!

  3. Tour Itinerary

    Day 1 : Dublin's Distillery Trail

    Our meeting point is James Fox Cigar & Whiskey Shop at 119 Grafton Street. The shop is in a very central location, just across the road from the front gates of Trinity College. Your friendly Whiskey Island Host is here to meet you and check you in for the tour and you have time to browse through the vast stocks of whiskeys while we wait for all guests to arrive. We board luxury transport nearby and we take you to the Liberties neighbourhood of Dublin, which once housed 32 working distilleries, all of which disappeared in the 20th century. But now, distilling is returning to the Liberties with a bang! And this afternoon, we take you to three ‘new wave’ Dublin distilleries.

    Our first visit is to the Dublin Liberties Distillery – a brand new distillery set in a 300-year-old building. Along with learning how their whiskeys are made and how they differ from other world brands, you’ll be entertained with some wonderful stories on characters who lived over many years in The Liberties. Tastings include Dubliner Tannery Edition (exclusive to the distillery), Liberties Oak Devil and Dubliner Honeycomb Liqueur.

    Just a short walk around the block will see us at Teeling Whiskey Distillery – the first new distillery to open in Dublin for over 125 years. We do a private visit to Teelings which includes a shortened visit to the distillery floor, there’s no need to do a full process tour again. We arrive in the bar for a private tasting of Teeling Small Batch and Teeling Single Pot Still – the latter being the first Dublin whiskey to come out of the city in nearly 50 years. 

     Next we’re off to Pearse Lyons Distillery, set in St. James’ Church which dates back to the 12th century. The tour includes a saunter around the graveyard on the grounds of the church and the you’ll hear the fascinating stories of those buried there. Discover the distillery in all it’s glory, set in the restored church. We’ll have a private tasting of three Pearse Lyons whiskeys and their delicious Dublin gin.

    We finish our whiskey trail at The Celtic Whiskey Shop for a tasting of two premium Irish whiskeys and a delicious liqueur with one of the store’s whiskey ambassadors. The store is a whiskey lover’s heaven and it is very central, just off St Stephen’s Green, so we finish back in the downtown area and we’re glad to give you some restaurant/pub recommendations or indeed some tips for the rest of your trip!
