For Irish whiskey lovers, don’t miss the Irish Whiskey Museum: a museum entirely dedicated to the famous Irish beverage! Rather playful, the museum is located in Grafton Street in Dublin. The visit will allow you to discover the history of whiskey through stories and anecdotes. A nice exhibition, which will end with a small tasting!
The Irish Whiskey Museum is located at 119 Grafton Street. Rather modern, the museum offers you to dive into the history of the famous 100% irish alcohol.
You will then learn that whiskey is an Irish (and not Scottish) invention, and that it has the particularity to be distilled 3 times before being aged in casks.
Then follows a topo on the history of prohibition in Ireland, with the different phases of repression exerted by the British on the Irish. The visit then continues with a presentation of stills, as well as the most famous distilleries of the country.
The exhibition is rather nice and complete before ending with a tour in the museum bar. You will be offered to taste 3 different types of whiskeys. Your guide will explain how to savour them, and how to better understand their different aromas.
It must be said that the museum is a partner of most Irish distilleries: the opportunity to have a rather complete overview of the different types of whiskeys, and to get information from great connoisseurs! To be drunk in moderation of course.
every day from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm from March to December. From 11:00 am to 6:00 pm from January to February.
