What to expect

On this full day whiskey trail, you will be taken on luxury transport from the heart of Dublin into rural Ireland, accompanied by your guide and whiskey expert.

Your first stop will be the Kilbeggan Distillery where you'll enjoy a master class in the tasting of three Irish whiskeys from the Kilbeggan Distillery Range – Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey, Kilbeggan Single Grain and Tyrconnell Single Malt.

Next, you'll visit one of Ireland’s most authentic towns, Athlone and enjoy some free time to explore or grab lunch. Your host will then take you to Ireland's oldest pub Sean’s Bar and you’ll enjoy a tasting of Sean’s Specially Blended & Single Malt Irish Whiskeys.

Another quick transfer by road will have you at the home of Tullamore D.E.W., one of the biggest Irish whiskeys in the world. You'll take the tour at Tullamore with Whiskey Wise Masterclass in the impressive D.E. Williams Branch House. Part-bar-part-grocery, this unique space was inspired by the branch houses of D.E.W., a chain of one-stop shops that thrived across the midlands over 100 years ago! After time for shopping, you'll hit the road for Dublin and be back downtown for 6 pm.
