Overview
Soak up the local flavor during a guided whiskey tour of Ireland's capital city. Sample 5 exquisite whiskeys, savoring smooth flavors that call to mind clear mountain streams and stately oak forests.

Settle into a private booth at the Dingle Whiskey Bar and start your whiskey experience with a blended whiskey. Note the warm feeling the intermingling flavors produce, and then chat with your guide about Ireland's tradition of whiskey distilling. After this warm introduction, you will sample a whiskey that is inspired by Irish writers like Johnathan Swift and Oscar Wilde.

When you are fully relaxed it is time to visit your next whiskey bar - Bowes Lounge. Enjoy a whiskey in the private snug or with some Dublin locals, as you hear tales of whiskey smuggling and whiskey fires.

Then on to your last whiskey bar. Sitting in The Palace Bar drinking whiskey bottled for this bar you will listen to your guide tell you about Dublin whiskey old and new before heading out to explore Dublin city.
