Irish Whiskey Museum
Starting from the cafe bar at 10am, the guide will take you to the next floor to start the tour.  Discover the history of Irish whiskey and the Irish diet from as far back as early Christianity until Modern Day.  Each of the five rooms are themed and represent an era in Irish history. Go way back in time in the 'apothecary' and discover how whiskey, or as the Irish know it 'Uisce Beatha' (or water of life), came about. Moving on to the 'shebeen' room, learn about some quirky Irish traditions in the late 1800's and what the Irish ate at that time.   The next room, which is a Victorian style bar, represents more opulent times in Irish history. This was called the golden era of Irish whiskey. Moving to the next floor and the Renaissance room, discover the number of political events which led to the downfall of the whiskey industry in Ireland before its current revival. After 35 minutes of history, enjoy a 15-minute masterclass with a master taster and learn about the flavors and aromas of 3 Irish whiskeys from different distilleries.   At the end of the tasting, the guide will take the group back to the Cafe bar to enjoy a hearty brunch of Irish food representing the eras. Allow 25-30 minutes to enjoy brunch.

This was a fascinating experience. Do not let the photos of the outside of this museum deceive you! The museum is on multiple floors. Check in is inside their modest and stylish gift shop. The tour takes you through several rooms and floors. Each room is detailed to the particular period/history of Irish Whiskey making. The tour leader thoroughly explains the history of Irish Whiskey making with flair and extensive knowledge. Your final destination, before breakfast, is a gorgeous, classy and very large tasting room. We learned so much about the process for making the whiskey and the best way to taste the final product. We encourage anyone, especially whiskey novices, to take this tour and brunch experience. When it is over, you will find yourself in the heart of Dublin.

Right in the middle of Dublin is this little museum packed with interesting info on Irish history and the history of the making of whisky both here and abroad. Our guide was amazing! The brunch was held in a pub room and was delicious. Great experience!
