Great Tour, Fun and Educational
Kevin_M

We had a great time on this tour. Meeting our guide at the 1st pub was easy, and we stayed there for a while. We sampled 3 different Irish Whiskey’s there, accompanied by a talk about the history, production and qualities of each. We also learned about different types of glasses, as well as the various ways to enjoy whiskey. We then moved on to our 2nd pub, where we had a reserved “snug” to sit in. We sampled 2 more whiskeys here. Everyone on the tour had different opinions on which they liked the most, and it was interesting to hear the differences. I would recommend this tour to anyone who has any interest in Irish Whiskey, from someone with no experience with it to the experienced expert. Having the chance to sample the various whiskeys made it easy to get an idea of what your likes and dislikes may be. Coupled with the great tour guide and excellent pubs, it was a perfect evening.

Viator canceled the tour at 8:30 AM the day of the tour. We were able to call the whiskey place ourselves and get a partial tour. I like Viator but they do tend to cancel tours. It’s frustrating especially if you have booked the tours months prior. If you book the tour directly, you will enjoy the tour.

Whiskey Tasting with the Locals

Niall was a great whiskey guide! He was easy to talk to and it was immediately apparent that he knows his whiskey. He went over the history of Irish whiskey as a foundation for all the tastings we were going to have and knew a lot about the different processes and the different whiskey businesses in Ireland. You get to go to three different locations (off the tourist path) and taste about 5 different whiskeys. He also had good recommendations for food, pubs, and whiskeys that weren't full of tourists. I wish it hadn't been my last night so that I could have tried more of those recommendations and gone back to the bars we went to.

Very highly recommended. Guide Owen was fantastic with an in depth knowledge of whiskey and a great guy - I learnt so much from the careful selection of different Irish whisky to demonstrate styles and characteristics. Visiting three different bars was a real bonus being a perfect introduction to Dublins night life.

Fantastic! I only had 1.5 days in Dublin, so glad I chose this as my main activity. The guide was extremely knowledgable about whiskey and Ireland in general. Highly recommend. It was really cool to go to various pubs and learn their origins as well.

Outstanding in every way. I originally thought this was going to be a massive tasting with dozens and dozens of others. That' not the case at all. We had a total of six people in our group. You taste a total of five whiskeys at three different bars within easy walking distance of each other. The tour guide was truly a professional and knew exactly what she was talking about. This was absolutely best tour I have ever been on. I don't like 'feeling' like a tourist... and the way that this happens - it's like you're a local trying to get some more knowledge about the incredibly interesting world of whiskey. Highly, highly highly recommend.

My husband and his friend went on this tour. They had an amazing time. The tour guide was very friendly and informative. She gave amazing suggestions and the whiskey was delicious. We even ended up buying some of the ones they tasted before leaving Dublin. Highly recommend booking this tour!

Great tour if you already know a little about whiskey but want to know more. Super knowledgeable guide, can't remember her name but she liked Star Trek so that's good. The tour seems to be very adaptable to which type of group they have which is great. Got some great new whiskey ideas!

This was a really nice and informative tour. Our guide canceled and the owner of the tour had to come in from 40km away - but he did! I admire that he made the effort because it literally was last minute! We had some great whisky's and went to classic locations. I highly recommend this tour!
