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.

Just next door we have our first stop – The Irish Whiskey Museum – a very fitting introduction to Irish Whiskey. Enjoy the captivating anecdotes of talented story tellers as they take you on a journey through the ages revealing the origins of Irish whiskey, its rise to glory, dramatic downfall and current global revival. Tasting of 4 delicious Irish whiskeys included at the end of the tour, in the bar.


We travel not far by foot to a famous Dublin pub where we sample several whiskeys that would be widely regarded as the best Irish whiskeys that money can buy. This tour is ideal for the whiskey drinker who has fallen for Jameson, and now during their Ireland adventure, they want to discover some of the really delicious whiskeys that they may never have heard of. We then finish in the Celtic Whiskey Shop, our favourite store in Ireland! We'll have a parting glass at the store and we'll help you with any purchases you're thinking of making.
