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.
9:30AM DEPARTURE FROM DUBLIN CITY
We meet outside the Celtic Whiskey Shop which is very centrally located on Dawson Street at 9:30am. Our luxury transport will be there ready for boarding and we head out of the city for the west. Your Whiskey Expert Host 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. In fact, Sean’s Bar is not only the oldest bar in Europe, it is the oldest pub in the world! Timmy or Declan, who both run the bar, will show you a letter from the Guinness Book of Records as proof! They also have their very own whiskey brands which are really, really good. And you’ll enjoy a tasting of Sean’s Specially Blended & Single Malt Irish Whiskeys during our visit to the pub.
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 updgraded tour at Tullamore with Whiskey Wise Masterclass in the impressive D.E. Williams Branch House. The masterclass will afford you the opportunity to try all whiskeys in the Tullamore range. The D.E. Williams Branch House is an experience in itself. 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 6:30pm.
