About The Irish Whiskey Tour:
The entire Irish whiskey experience is spread out across five rooms and two floors. Your guide will start the tour by taking the group up to the second floor where the first three chapters of the story unfold: 'The Origin of Irish Whiskey', 'The Olden Times of Irish Whiskey', and 'The Boom Times of Irish Whiskey'.
Ascending to the third floor you'll hear about the subsequent 'Decline of Irish Whiskey' before moving into modern times and the current 'Renaissance of Irish Whiskey'. The guided tour finishes off with a visit to the tasting room, where a master taster will share their knowledge with the group.
The descent back to the first floor is done in a spectacular glass lift to optimise viewing of the building's Edwardian architecture.
Back on ground level you're welcome to take advantage of the contemporary whiskey bar and do some souvenir shopping in the retail section.
