IRELAND'S HIDDERN HEARTLANDS WHISKEY TRAIL
Want to escape Dublin to the Irish countryside for a day? This tour is for you! Includes tour and premium tasting at Tullamore D.E.W.
10 AM DEPARTURE FROM DUBLIN CITY
We meet outside the Celtic Whiskey Shop which is very centrally located on Dawson Street at 10am. Our luxury transport will be there ready for boarding and we head out of the city for the west. Your whiskey expert driver/guide will entertain you as you sit back and enjoy the rolling Irish countryside. Don’t get too comfortable! Our first stop is only a quick hour down the road. First stop is Kilbeggan Distillery. We take the tour here at Kilbeggan which includes 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.
ATHLONE AND IRELAND's OLDEST PUB
Next we visit one of Ireland’s most authentic towns, Athlone. Enjoy some free time here / grab some lunch. When we regroup, your host will take you for a visit to Sean’s Bar – Ireland’s oldest pub. They have their very own whiskey brands and you’ll enjoy a tasting of Sean’s Specially Blended & Single Malt Irish Whiskeys.
THE HOME OF TULLAMORE D.E.W.
Another quick transfer by road will have us at the home of Tullamore D.E.W., one of the biggest Irish whiskeys in the world. We 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, we hit the road for Dublin and have you back around the downtown area (Nassau Street) for 6pm.
