Our meeting point is James Fox Cigar & Whiskey Shop at 119 Grafton Street. The shop has a very central location, just across the road from the front gates of Trinity College. Your friendly Whiskey Specialist Host is here to meet you.

Once all guests have arrived and are accounted for, we board an executive bus and depart for the whiskey neighbourhood of Dublin. We take the scenic route of course and your Whiskey Host will tell you all about the places we pass. You’ll get the backdrop to the Irish whiskey story, before visiting Pearse Lyons Distillery – a very fitting start to our Irish Whiskey adventure. This distillery has one of the most unique settings in Ireland – we won’t say too much here! Tasting of three Pearse Lyons Irish whiskeys included at the end of the tour in the bar


Our objective today is to share the Dublin whiskey story with you through the ages, from one time world fame, to near wipe out , to Renaissance! We bring you to the old remnants of Dublin whiskey heritage, such as; Powers Distillery (closed 1976), George Roe & Co (closed 1926). There were 40 distilleries in this neighbourhood and they all closed, we explain why! As Irish whiskey reclaims it’s place in the spirits world, distilleries are popping up all over Ireland. Today, we bring you to three new Dublin distilleries , without taking the public tour . We cut out the repetition. After our visit to Pearse Lyons, you will also enjoy bespoke tours and tastings at Teeling Whiskey Distillery & Dublin Liberties Distillery

At 1:30pm, we’ll drop you off along the side of St. Stephen’s Green, right in the middle of town.

  • We work closely with our distilleries to ensure that great care is taken in pouring whiskey samples. Our tours are about sampling – not drinking!

We always strongly recommend you enjoy a hearty meal before joining us on tour!
