The only Irish whiskey museum in the world has opened its doors in the centre of Dublin.
The unique attraction chronicles the story of Irish whiskey, looking at everything from its taste and flavour, to the rise, fall and current worldwide renaissance of the Irish whiskey industry.
The museum features a range of enjoyable, interactive exhibitions spread out across five rooms in a location right in the heart of the city’s ‘golden mile’ overlooking historic Trinity College.Completely independent from the drinks industry, the Irish Whiskey Museum features all types and brands of whiskey and offers a tasting – one of the ‘proper’ things to do while in Dublin – led by a master taster.
In addition to a range of fantastic guided tours there is an exclusive collection of Irish whiskey memorabilia dating back to the 19th century.A retail area also showcases whiskey merchandise, while a contemporary bar serves Irish whiskey, Irish coffee or whiskey cocktails.
Those who are more serious about the drink can upgrade to a VIP ticket to be allowed to sample mature aged whiskey.Offering a great day out with a difference, the Irish Whiskey Museum is also part of the Dublin Discovery Trail, which focuses on the city’s culture and heritage and runs from College Green to Kilmainham Gaol and is among the most popular attractions in the city.
